As mentioned above, horses are gregarious animals and lack of social contact to conspecifics both early and later in life may cause development of different abnormal behaviours. Social contact can be both direct and indirect. Direct contact is when horses are able to touch each other over/through partitions or in paddocks or in group housing (where horses have full contact with each other). Indirect contact is when horses are able to see, smell and hear other horses. Horses prefer direct contact in paddocks, on pasture or in group housing.
It is recommended that horses, at least during a part of the day, have contact to other horses in a paddock, pasture or in group housing. This makes social grooming possible, and, especially for young horses, allows for the development of other social behavioural patterns, including learning to read the signals of other horses. Horses should always be able to at least see other horses.
The need for contact to conspecifics should be kept in mind when designing accommodation for horses. Furthermore, any accommodation should be dimensioned to fit the size of the horse so that it at all times is able to lie down, rest and get up unimpeded, and stand in its natural position. Although there are differences between breeds, there is a fairly good correlation between the height at the withers and total height and length of the horse. The length of a horse standing in its natural position is approx. the height at the withers multiplied by 1.5. The height of a horse standing in its normal position is approx. the height at the withers multiplied by 1.3. This may be used as a guideline when designing accommodation for horses. However, it should be kept in mind that more space is needed for a horse to turn around freely and for head lifting. The accommodation should be constructed and maintained so that there are no sharp edges or protrusions likely to cause injury to the horses. Materials, with which horses may come into contact, should not be harmful to the animals and should be capable to be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.
Windows in tie stalls, individual boxes and group housing systems should be made of unbreakable glass or be protected by a grid or the like to prevent the horse from breaking the glass and injure itself. The laying area for horses should be provided with an adequate amount of suitable bedding material, to ensure a dry and comfortable resting area. Passageways should have a non-slip surface and be wide enough to allow horses to pass each other safely and without difficulty. Doors should be at least 1.2 meters wide for horses and 1.1 meters wide for ponies. and they should be sliding doors or open outwards. Doors to individual boxes or group housing systems should be fitted with devises that fasten them both on top and bottom. The indoor height should allow the horses to stand in their natural position and carry out normal head movements. As a guideline, the indoor height of any accommodation should be at least the height of the withers plus 75 cm.
