How do horses experience fear?
What makes the difference between a horse spooking or thinking when it’s scared of something?
How and why do horses sometimes attach fear about a situation to a specific object?
All those questions and more are answered in the article “What’s Your Horse Thinking” by Jennifer Forsberg Meyer that shares Temple Grandin’s insights into horses and fear. I highly suggest this article for all horse lovers and horse owners! The article clarified many experiences and thoughts I’ve had in the past year and a half or so while helping horses to heal past trauma and work through the fear associated with the trauma.
