Horse in traffic is a qualitative case study that aims to provide knowledge about interactions between horse, horse users and modern road traffic, and which type of measures might be needed to improve road safety. Providing knowledge about typical events and situations for equestrians and horse drivers in road traffic, and how horses react in different situations can be helpful for increasing road users’ awareness about risk factors and making them behave more cautiously. The study will focus on how road traffic safety is emphasized in different horse environments. Authorities can get the basis for focusing on the safety of the horses and their riders. The findings of the study may be of importance for programming driverless vehicles. The study aims to contribute to reduction of road traffic accidents. Document studies, interviews and questionnaires delivered to people with different roles in horse environments as well as tests in restricted areas will be used in data collection.

Hest i trafikk er en kvalitativ kasusstudie som har til hensikt å fremskaffe kunnskap om hvordan samspillet er mellom hest, hestebruker og moderne veitrafikk, og hvilke tiltak det kan være behov for, for å forbedre trafikksikkerheten. Ved å fremskaffe kunnskap om typiske hendelser for rytter og kusk i veitrafikk og hvordan hester reagerer i ulike situasjoner, kan dette bidra til at trafikanter blir oppmerksomme på risikofaktorer, og opptrer med varsomhet. Forskningen setter også fokus på hvordan trafikksikkerhet blir fokusert på i hestemiljøer. Myndighetene kan få grunnlag for å sette fokus på sikkerheten til hest og bruker i trafikk. Funnene vil kunne få betydning for programmering av førerløse kjøretøy. Studien vil i helhet kunne bidra til færre trafikkulykker med hest, i tråd med Nullvisjonen. I studien gjøres det datainnsamling gjennom dokumentstudier, kvalitative intervju og spørreundersøkelse av personer som har ulike roller i hestemiljøet, samt utprøvinger på lukket område.

The aim of the project is to study effects of LED-light on milk production and activity in dairy cows. The main hypotheses are that LED light allows maintained cow activity and milk production with less energy used for illumination, and that LED-light makes it possible to apply a dark period during …

Hälta eller lateralitet: när är en rörelseasymmetri betydelsefull?
Marie Rhodin, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

Projektnummer: H-17-47-286 • Status: Pågående • Ansökningsår: 2017

Motor laterality, such as left or right-handedness, is a well-known asymmetric phenomenon in both humans and animals, incl. horses. Concurrently, lameness caused by orthopaedic injury is a common cause for asymmetry. In our study of riding horses in training, 73 % had motion asymmetries, warranting …

Competing unshod is an important issue for the Swedish harness industry. There is a general opinion that performance may increase significantly but it does not always work. The reason for failure may be disturbed locomotion “balance” of the horse or due to pain from the hooves. This is obviously …

Icelandic horses are increasingly popular in Sweden and Norway. Their strength lies in their unique gaits, however, in lame horses this trait becomes a weakness. Evaluating not only lameness but also the leg of origin for lameness in any gait other than trot is exceptionally challenging. Today, we …

A few years ago, media reported on a 7 year-old girl who was killed during a riding lesson. The accident evokes questions about children, horses and safety. Children are small and horses big, and the horse is a herd and prey animal whose behaviour is partly controlled by instincts. Today, many …
