Ponies and horses love being outdoors where they are at liberty to display their natural traits and satisfy their curious minds. However, if your horse has to be stabled or placed in a restricted outdoor area for health reasons or particularly bad weather there are plenty of things you can do to keep them entertained.
Horses love play balls that they can kick around and pick up with their mouths to throw. This gives them an outlet for excess energy if they are in a playful mood.
Giving your horse fruit and vegetables is a great way of enriching their environment; it can keep them entertained for longer, especially if they are in stables.
Scratching mats provide horses with the means to be able to safely reach that itch that they just can’t themselves. This reduces stress levels in an indoor environment and prevents damage to property at the same time!
