When this man brings a wooden flute into a horse pasture, you might imagine that any number of things would happen. But when he starts to play? The horses absolutely show that they enjoy and are fascinated by the music. They gather around him, inspect him intently, and seem quite happy to stand next to him as he plays.
According to Equine Wellness Magazine, horses have quite sensitive hearing and can hear frequencies that humans can’t. Music often seems to soothe horses, but the type of music being played may have different effects on horses. For instance, country and classical music are generally well-received by horses, while rock or rap may actually irritate horses.
