Fireworks and horses
Even the most sensible of horses can be frightened by fireworks. By being proactive in planning for firework displays, you can make the celebrations less stressful for you and your horse.
Many people are not aware how much suffering fireworks cause to animals, particularly horses. Anyone organising a firework display should inform local horse owners and it's also a good idea not to let fireworks off anywhere near fields or farms.
Please think carefully about the local animals if you are planning to have fireworks in your back garden.
