Have you ever suspected that your horse understood what you were saying to it? You might not be wrong!
We all know that horses can learn to react to signals and cues, but they can also understand the emotional state of humans.
Horses can look at a person and recognise their facial expression and the corresponding emotion, a new study has found. Not only can they distinguish between different facial expression, they also understand the importance of emotions like anger or calmness.
The study tested horse’s heart rates and head movements in response to different facial expressions. They found that angry facial expression made horses turn their left eye towards the image and have a raised heart rate. Even more impressive, they could understand photographs of angry faces.
This study leads to the idea that horses are much more emotionally intelligent than previously thought. The study implies that horses are able to cross over the emotional barrier that comes with being a different species to humans.
Another study found that horses are capable of producing 17 facial expressions of their own; 3 more than chimpanzees and 10 less than humans. It’s more evidence for the idea that the emotional word of the horse is highly developed and strongly linked to the emotional experience of humans.
So if you’ve found yourself defending the idea that riders and their horses share special, real emotional connections, you’ve just found scientific evidence to support you.

Building An Aircraft Control Tower
This is one of our most impressive recent builds and is a great example of design, functionality and quality coming together to create an exceptional structure.
We were contacted by a commercial builder that needed a special design and construction solution. We had done a lot of hangars in the past, but had not before embarked on a structure o
f this kind, on this scale. It was a challenge we were very excited by.
As with all things involving aircraft, there were a lot of very specific demands that needed to be met and we knew that this project would need an exceptional amount of attention to detail.
Making sure that every part of the project is completely accurate and precise was crucially important on a complex technical building like this. Luckily, our clients had a thorough understand of their requirements and our engineers were able to work with them to get this project completed and fully functional.
The building looks fantastic and does the job perfectly. Large projects always come together flawlessly when we have the chance to work closely with our clients. Our team of engineers and designers were able to take on board all of the specifications and requirements to create one of the best buildings we’ve ever erected.
