Breakfast Is More Fun with a Horse in the House

Posted by Paige Cerulli

A good breakfast is the key to the start of a good day, but having a horse in the house takes breakfast to a whole new level. 

There are all different approaches to horse care. You have the horse owners who swear by traditional remedies, and then you have other owners who are totally into the new-age treatments and approaches. Some owners let their horses live in run-in sheds so that they have constant access to pasture, while others prefer to keep their horses in stalls at night.

But the owner in this video takes a completely different approach: he allows his horse in the house.

Now, it doesn't look like this horse lives in the house, but he certainly comes in for breakfast and visits. This young horse navigates the steps, heads through the living room, and visits the kitchen. While having a horse in the house isn't for everyone, it seems to work out just fine for these two.

Not so keen on letting your horse in the house? It's probably not a bad idea to keep your horse outside of your home. Bringing a horse into your house can result in injury to your or the horse, along with damage to your home if your horse panics.

Still, this young horse demonstrates how calm and level-headed horses can be, even at young ages. Part of this is certainly breeding and inherited temperament. But good handling plays a significant role in this, too.

This horse has clearly been handled quite a bit. He leads well, trusts his owner, and has the confidence to navigate strange obstacles and places. This is why it's so important to work with horses when they're young, and to know how to handle young horses. It looks like this horse has a bright future ahead of him!
