Horses require adequate food and shelter to thrive. The same goes for your horse even if it's your pet. Unlike the racing horses you see on websites like TVG, your horse will be a domestic horse. It will be gentle and quiet. It needs sufficient food and water in the shelter. It needs a comfortable place to sleep and rest. You must make sure the shelter is big enough for your horse to move around comfortably. It should have space to spread itself out when needed completely.
