Starck , Emma, 2009. Professionell Hästhållning : grundinformation till lantmästare. First cycle, G1E. Alnarp: SLU, Rural Buildings and Animal Husbandry (until 121231)



Every year, the horse industry in Sweden is growing. Because of this growth, it would
be most beneficial for the people involved in the agricultural business in Sweden to
improve their horse skills.
I have assembled a form that includes basic guidelines for professional horse care.
History tells us that Swedish horses have had a huge impact on the agricultural business.
Before the arrival of the tractor, the horse played a very important role for the farmer.
Today, horses are kept primarily for pleasure, mostly as a hobby for non-professional
people. In Sweden, we are seeing the small horse farms become more and more
popular, which is keeping the countryside open and alive.
I feel it is very important to improve the knowledge among farmers and others who will
work in close proximity to horses. This will enable us to raise the standard of care of
horses today and reduce the number of people who market themselves as professional
horse specialists, even though they have no education or experience in the field
In this essay you will find information about the most common horse breeds in Sweden,
including basic anatomy of the horse, feeding directions, hoof and dental care, common
diseases and their treatment. There is information relative to the safe transportation of a
horse as well as the rules pertaining to horses in traffic. I have also provided a summary of the rules from the Swedish Department of Agriculture, not only regarding horses and how to keep them, but also compared these rules to the restrictions for cows and pigs.
My hope is that this written work will give students of agriculture an easy but comprehensive overview, with basic guidelines to follow in their future involvement with the Swedish horse business.
