Summary

From birth till adulthood the young horse goes through distinct phases in behaviour development. The behavioural development is a result of hereditary behaviour programmes as well as learned behaviour patterns. In order to raise foals optimally and to prepare them for the later tasks of the adult horse, it is important to understand the different phases of behaviour development. Various factors can influence this development, including housing, social life and foal handling.
