In the course of comparative studies of Testing mammalian hearing, we have recently begun to examine the hearing abilities of horses.' There are several standard behavioral proOur choice of horses as subjects for auditory cedures currently used to determine the research was based on theoretical considerhearing abilities of mammals.' The proceations related to their size as well as to the dure which we used here is known as a "go1 fact that the auditory abilities of Perissono-go" procedure in… Expand

Sensory Abilities of Horses and Their Importance for Equitation Science
TLDR
The potential use of sensory enrichment/positive sensory stimulation to improve the welfare of horses in various situations e.g. using odors, touch or sound to enrich the environment or to appease horses is discussed. Expand
The Brainstem Auditory Evoked Response in Old Versus Young Horses
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of aging on the BAER in equines and to investigate can brainstem auditory evoked responses be identified and replicated for older horses. Expand
Toward a Choice-Based Judgment Bias Task for Horses
TLDR
2 versions of an auditory judgment bias task for horses in terms of acquisition learning and discrimination of ambiguous cues are evaluated, indicating that it is more difficult to train horses on an active choice task than on a go/no-go task. Expand
Preliminary investigations of horses' (Equus caballus) responses to different bridles during foundation training
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that horses wearing bitless bridles performed at least as well as, if not better than, those in bitted bridles, and if the use of bitting bridles does cause discomfort to horses, then theUse of bitless Bridles could be beneficial and certainly warrants further investigation.

Comparative Analysis of Long-Range Calls in Equid Stallions (Equidae): Are Acoustic Parameters Related to Social Organization?
TLDR
Comparison of stallion long-range calls in seven species/breeds of equids found that equids respond strongly to conspecific calls but also to calls of other equids, especially the type II species. Expand
Comparative analysis of long-range calls in equid stallions (Equidae): are acoustic parameters related to social organization?
Evolution of long-distance communication in equids may correspond with species-specific types of social organization. To compare harem-forming species (type I) with those that do not establishExpand
A nursing approach to the equine standing surgical patient
TLDR
How physiological knowledge combined with patient observation in practice can improve patient welfare and personnel safety during standing procedures is discussed. Expand
