some of the research in our Boredom and Stable Vices section
was from the point of view that as a Herd Animal a horse kept
in a stable and isolated from its natural herd would suffer
stress and boredom. The stress and boredom would cause abnormal
behaviour and the development of stable vices, or stereotypical
behaviour as it is otherwise known.
Putting a mirror
in the stable,
in a position that the horse could easily see itself, would
provide a companion and make the horse feel it had company.
This would remove the underlying stress and boredom and reduce
or cure the stable vice.

Glass mirrors are very dangerous in

mirrors need to be shatterproof.
a horse will lick or even bite at its mirror as it will when
grooming a friend. This presents two possible problems - the
first is that a glass mirror will break with obvious and immediate
dangers, the second is that a very hard surface mirror such
as steel may cause wear or chipping to a horse's teeth.
For Safety Mirrors

tests in the UK). Our mirrors are all made of Acrylic in the
EU to the highest quality standards and provide a brilliant
There are two main types of mirror available
as Stable or Horse Mirrors, Acrylic
or Stainless Steel. We

were recommended by the scientists for safety. They are almost
identical to a glass mirror in reflective quality, are flexible,
light and easy to handle and and have a 'soft' surface. The
surface will show scratches if a horse rubs its teeth on it
or tries to bite it but the mirror will remain highly reflective
and the horse's teeth will not wear or chip on it. Light scratches
can easily be polished out using a car polish such as TCut
(as sometimes seen in public toilets), is very effective if
highly polished, although having the danger of wear or chipping
to teeth if your horse is one of the rare examples which bites
at the mirror. They are very expensive compared to Acrylic
and there is only one supplier we are aware of (see 'Compare
prices' section in the left margin).Stainless steel picks
up surface scratches from horse's teeth and cleaning - the
reflective quality deteriorates with the scratches.
Types and DIY.
We are aware of reflective plastic film mounted to a plywood
backing being used, although this does not have the reflective
qualities of either acrylic or stainless steel. We have also
heard of highly polished aliminium being used but this is
a soft metal and surface scratches remove its reflective ability
(unlike acrylic). Neither is likely to be a long term solution.
