Stabled horses benefit greatly from Stable Mirrors.
Every horse which spends any significant time in a stable
is alone and away from its natural herd. It faces psychological
challenges from boredom and lack of company.
in 15% of stabled horses exhibiting stable vices such as box
walking, weaving, crib biting etc. That is roughly 1 in every
6 stabled horses. From studies we are actively involved in
(on an ongoing basis) it is becoming apparent that around
50% or more of stabled horses show identifiable signs of discomfort
and unhappiness at the lack of company whilst stabled. Further
research we are embarking on will be exploring the effect
on the performance of horses involved in competition with
and without mirrors.
In both Scientific
studies and use in stables installing a Stable Mirror has
produced astounding results with horses becoming more relaxed,
happier and with a very significant effect on reducing or
stopping stable vices.

with a stable mirror than they were before, as found In studies

with a mirror in the stable becomes a calm and painless process
as many of our customers have found.
Sleep - Horses with Mirrors will lay down
and sleep in their box as they feel a 'herd companion' is
standing guard over them. First noted by the Veteran Horse
Society, many of our customers have found the same. We will
shortly be undertaking a research study into this to see if
there are measurable differences in performance and feeding
requirements as a result.
and Gastric Complaints. Horses which have
developed severe gastric ulcers as a result of neurosis and
stress in the stable have recovered when a mirror was fitted.
We first came across this when a customer called us and said
that after a leading professor of veterinary medicine had
exhausted all possible remedies and her horse was facing being
put down within days she had installed a mirror as a last
ditch attempt. Within 3 days her horse had turned the corner
and now has fully recovered. Since then there have been a
number of similar results. Vets treating horses with
a similar problem are invited to take part in a study
and we will supply mirrors as part of the study - please call
or email us as this may be a significant addition to the treatment
Aries, above had been a constant
weaver, box walker and crib biter for more than 12 years
following 9 months on box rest as a 2 year old. His behaviour
worsened following the death, in late 2005, of his dam who
he been with all his life.
His case came up during a study we were involved with, although
he was not part of the study. We decided he needed to be
included and, after 2 weeks monitoring to record and film
existing behaviour, we installed a large stable mirror for
Within 1 minute of him being introduced to his new Stable
Mirror he was 'making friends' with it, and from then forwards
he was completely relaxed. He no longer weaved or box walked
and his previously incessant crib biting was reduced to
an occasional bite on the box door when eating his feed.
The way in which he stopped weaving and box walking immediately
is a very typical reaction , as is the significant reduction
in crib biting.
We will shortly be adding some
short video clips showing Aries and other horses before
and after the installation of their mirrors.

Animals - removed from their herd.
Horses, as we all know, are herd animals and spending any
length of time in a stable places them in a highly abnormal
situation where they are separated from the direct companionship
of other horses.
This leads to
stress and boredom and, as a direct result, many horses react
badly or feel insecure developing stable vices such as weaving,
crib biting, box walking, and windsucking. A stable mirror
provides permanent 'companionship' leading to a relaxed and
happier horse and removing the stress which causes stable
can't always choose how long our horse is stabled for.
We can't always help or change the amount of time our horse
spends stabled be it through its work and training regime
or simply the restrictions of the facilities available to
us. But we can help overcome the loneliness and try and improve
the quality of that time by installing a stable mirror.
installing a Stable Mirror money well spent?
Yes - all the evidence shows it is. Whether you fit one as
a positive step to help alleviate an existing vice, or to
improve the quality of your horses life when shut up in its
stable and to help prevent stable vices developing, we believe
it is money well spent. Our customers think so and we have
set out to provide stable mirrors at an affordable price,
less than many yards charge for a week's livery!
