Horses can learn to use symbols to communicate their preferences


  • Horses can learn to use symbols boards for communication with humans.
  • Horses could tell if they wanted a blanket put on or taken off, or stay unchanged.
  • Speed of learning varied.
  • All horses performed well within 2 weeks of training.
  • Training was successful for 23/23 horses of various age and breeds.

Horses were trained for 10–15 min per day, following a training program comprising ten steps in a strategic order. Reward based operant conditioning was used to teach horses to approach and touch a board, and to understand the meaning of three different symbols. Heat and cold challenges were performed to help learning and to check level of understanding.

[T]he 3-year old horse Blue seemed to enjoy the event of blankets taken on and off as he always touched the “change” symbol and therefore needed additional temperature challenge tests to understand the consequences of his choice for own thermal comfort.

When horses realized that they were able to communicate with the trainers, i.e. to signal their wishes regarding blanketing, many became very eager in the training or testing situation. Some even tried to attract the attention of the trainers prior to the test situation, by vocalizing and running towards the trainers, and follow their movements. On a number of such occasions the horses were taken out and allowed to make a choice before its regular turn, and signalled that they wanted the blanket to be removed. It turned out that the horses were sweaty underneath the blanket.

There is no guarantee that the wizard selling you that bag full of magic sand is wearing pants underneath his robes.
