Abstract: If a dog is man's best friend, a horse is man's best slave, says an old adage. The domestication of the horse has been a long and difficult process. Certain unnecessary byproducts of this domestication occur in many well-managed horse farms. These products take many forms, but more often than not appear as 'problem' behaviors, or vices. These include cribbing, pica, aerophagia, weaving, stall-walking, stamping, pawing...etc. These vices occur with the most prevalence in farms that severely restrict a horse's exercise, while at the same time feeding high-protein energy feed. These practices completely disregard the evolution, physiology, anatomy and social behavior of the horse. This thesis attempts to convince the reader that the problem behaviors previously described could be eliminated or reduced through management that took the complexities of the horse into consideration.
