The Domestic Horse : The Origins, Development and Management of its Behaviour, Paperback / softback Book

The Domestic Horse : The Origins, Development and Management of its Behaviour Paperback / softback

Edited by Daniel S. Mills, S. M. McDonnell


Humans have had a profound influence on the horse since its domestication in the late Neolithic period.

Used for transport, labour, food and recreation, horses have become important in many facets of our society.

Daniel Mills and Sue McDonnell have produced an exceptional account of our current knowledge of the development and management of the behaviour of the horse, from its wild roots.

The Domestic Horse, first published in 2005, brings together, for the first time, an unrivalled collection of international scientific authors to write on the latest findings concerning the behaviour and welfare of this beautiful animal.

Illustrated throughout, The Domestic Horse will appeal to animal scientists, those working with horses in a professional capacity and the owner/enthusiast.

It also provides sound complementary reading for animal/equine science courses and veterinary students.
