It can occur for several reasons poor schooling, fear of being on own, not wanting to work,and badly fitting tack being some of the most common causes

Equestrian sport and activity is full of odd sounding terms and definitions which is why we decided to put together a comprehensive index of known equine terms, most are British , some are American and a few are specific to Europe

We hope you find our A-Z Index of Equestrian Terms useful
Feel free to add your own horse terms and the odder they are the better, please do add a definition – use the comments box below
