Despite showing similar levels of cognitive responsiveness to humans as dogs, horses lack the same legal protection as household pets. The current study aims to highlight the importance of horse-human attachment by analyzing horses' behavioral reactions to entering a strange environment in the absence or presence of their caretakers. Ideally, investigating the influence of horse-human bonding on a horse's emotional stability will serve a purpose in improving horse welfare on a national level.
