Fourth of July Fireworks
Keep Your Horses Safe
4th of July fireworks can cause panic in some horses, especially if displayed nearby. Here are 9 tips to keep your horse calm during 4th of July fireworks:
1. Keep your routine as consistent as possible. Sometimes moving the horses to a different location or separating them from the herd can cause just as much fear.
2. If you plan to move your horses to a different location (or inside the barn), give them about a week to acclimate to the new surroundings.
3. Check your paddock or stalls for possible issues, including uneven ground, sharp edges, and broken boards to try and limit potential injuries.
4. If your horse is housed inside, try playing smoothing music to drown out the noise from fireworks.
5. Try using a slow-feeder to divert the horse’s attention.
6. Some horses will tolerate ear plugs that can help reduce noise.
7. Do not try to comfort your horse during the fireworks. It will be safer for you and your horse if you are not inside the paddock or stall.
8. Start desensitizing your horse to loud noises. It might not help for this year, but may help in the future.
9. If necessary, talk to your veterinarian about the possibility of a sedative. Keep in mind some of these products may be prohibited at some shows.
