Is it Coping or is it a Vice? A Review of Cribbing, Weaving and Other Stereotypic Behaviors in Horses

Management strategies and the horses environment can affect their behavior. Vices, or bad behaviors developed by horses, may be developed as a result of the horse's reaction to the management strategies you use.

In this presentation, Dr. Carissa Wickens, Assistant Professor of Equine Science and Equine Extension Specialist for the state of Delaware, will present information on equine stereotypic behaviors, including cribbing and weaving.

This presentation is free and provided as a partnership between eXtension Horses and My Horse University. The presentation will be archived, along with previous presentations, at
