Equinophobia is a psychological fear of horses, derived from the Phobos for fear and Equus for horse.

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.
