Guest Post: Design for Your Horses’ Sense of Sight
Tuesday, May 14 2013 by Editor
How do horses see? Horses have a wide field of vision, with blind spots immediately behind their bodies and below their noses. The ability to see in all directions is invaluable for a horse’s survival in the wild. On the other hand, because of their wide set eyes, horses have monocular vision on each side. This limits their depth perception and means that they must see an unfamiliar object from both sides before they can understand whether or not it is a danger.
