Innovative behavior of horses

In veterinarian sciences innovative behavior is considered to be a sign of intelligence. My doctoral research investigates the "Innovative behavior of horses". More specifically, I work towards decoding their cognitive abilities and aim to show that horses are more intelligent than previously assumed. The anticipated findings of the study hope to extend our understanding of the needs of horses and how to best respond to them. Please provide a direct contribution to animal welfare!
