The equine eye is the largest of any land mammal. Its visual abilities are directly related to the animal’s behavior and the fact that the horse is a flight animal. Both the strengths and weaknesses of the horse’s visual abilities should be taken into consideration when training the animal, as an understanding of the horse’s eye can help to discover why the animal behaves the way he does in various situations.
