Ethology & Horses

Wild Equus Network promotes welfare for domestically kept equines and the conservation of wild and free-roaming equids around the world.

Only through education can gaps be bridged between sociocultural considerations, ethics, and science. Wild Equus Network (WEN) proposes new strategies to help protect, manage, and conserve wild equids in the habitats on which they rely.

Throughout this site, you will find articles relating to the behavior of horses and other equids.

We provide ethology horse watching educational programs, which are oriented toward making a positive impact on the lives of wild, free-living, and domestic equids worldwide.

Our activities revolve around ethology; the biological study of behavior. Through our horse watching and field study programs of free-living horses, we aim to gain insight into the fascinating lives of horses as they navigate their world.

Studying equids in the wild not only aids our understanding of how to better manage existing populations, but it also clarifies welfare guidelines to improve the lives of domestic ones.
