Although dogs are often considered man’s best friend by many, there are other companion animals as well. horses can be some of the most loyal animals you’ll ever meet. Why is this? A large part of this is due to their great memory. Horses will remember you long after you have been with them.
All of this depends on how you treat your horse. Neglecting horses can lead to the opposite effect. However, treating them well will bring you great results. Horses are able to remember specific situations and people so if you treat them well they will be positive about you in the future. This works in both directions, as we have already said. Horses can be extremely nervous when they are introduced to a person or a place that has had a bad experience.
Even if you only see the horse a few times per year, chances are it will remember you. Horses have a strong memory and can instantly recognize familiar faces. This is especially true when we talk about horses and people who interact with them daily. Proper training can help to deepen this relationship. Positive reinforcement is key to a strong bond with your horse. This can be achieved by providing food and affection for horses who follow commands.

I’m Allison, born and raised in San Diego California, the earliest memory I have with horses was at my grandfather’s farm. I used to sit at the stable as a kid and hang out with my Papa while he was training the horses. When I was invited to watch a horse riding competition, I got so fascinated with riding!
