Majority (85 %) of horse’s owners possessed small size followed by medium size (9.5 %) and large size (5.5 %) herds. Frequency of feeding as a twice in a day is being practiced by only 1.75 per cent and three times a day by 17.75 per cent of the owners. However, 74.5 per cent of the horse owners practiced four times a day.
