Reaction Times, Presented by Kentucky Performance Products

Did you know that horses have the fastest reaction times of all domestic animals we interact with?

Of all the domestic animals we interact with, horses have the fastest reaction time. Horses evolved with this trait as an effective way of avoiding trouble.

So what does this mean for us?

As caretakers and riders it is important we understand just how quickly our horse can react and plan accordingly. If a horse decides to bite, kick or strike, you are an easy target. Stay out of harm’s way by knowing where your horse’s “safety zones” are and don’t become complacent. Even the quietest horse in the barn will react quickly when instinct takes over.
