Horsemorphization of Human

João Paulo Novelletto Pisa and Denise Pereira Leme

ABSTRACT Humans and horses have lived together for centuries, whether in a harmonious way or with a low degree of the welfare of horses, congruent that they would live if they were both in nature with other horses. The purpose of this mini-review is to compare the relationship between horses and this species with humans, to see if there is an idea of a horsemorphization from the equine point of view. According to this review, there is no way of saying whether horses see humans as horses, but, human beings often have their becoming-horse, to learn to have a more ethical and quality relationship with these animals.

KEYWORDS: animal welfare, becoming-horse, human-equine relationship
