We cheked morphological and ethological traits in horses employed with disable riders. Mesomorphic horses, with a good compactness zoometric ratio, very well adjusted themselves to 2 rider’s requirements. Selected horses well showed employment abilities to work with disable riders, never showing unadequate or dangerous behaviour and also small reactive behaviour was reduced along the experimental research period.

Abstract

We cheked morphological and ethological traits in horses employed with disable riders. Mesomorphic horses, with a good compactness zoometric ratio, very well adjusted themselves to 2 rider’s requirements. Selected horses well showed employment abilities to work with disable riders, never showing unadequate or dangerous behaviour and also small reactive behaviour was reduced along the experimental research period. Increasing positive behaviour, during the observation period, was also observed about riders, expecially autistic group, in relation to horses.
