Sufferers of Equinophobia usually experience an anxiety of approaching horses.
Equinophobics usually begin such feelings at a young age, either:
- Falling off a horse while riding
- Being bitten by a horse at a young age
- Meeting a horse for the first time that turns out to be aggressive[citations needed]
Even in cases where horses are relatively tame, Equinophobics will avoid any form of contact with horses or stables.
Another less common word for Equinophobia is Hippophobia.
