There is increasing evidence to support the recommendation of providing horses adequate shelter,either man-made shelter or natural shade, in order to safeguard the welfare of the horse. Research has shown weather conditions, particularly extreme temperatures, influence the horse’s shelter seeking behaviour and ability to successfully thermoregulate. The aim of this study was to investigate factors that may influence horse’s shelter seeking behaviour. Time of day, weather conditions, and type of shelter/shade were investigated.
