Fireworks – Fight or Flight!

Hay Folks,

The Fourth of July is almost here and that means barbeques, HOT DOGS, (Mmm mmm mmm) and of course fireworks!  Fireworks are magnificent and a great way to represent my patriotism, after all, I am an AMERICAN Quarter horse. But in a horse’s mind, the loud sounds and bright lights can mean “something is attacking me!” and trigger a horse’s flight response.  This can be very dangerous for the horse and people around them, too.
