  1. Yes they can.

    Their sense of smell is powerful, and their sense of logic can be astonishing! Horses are especially good at assessing new people. They learn to recognize people’s voices, mannerisms, build, clothing, smell and more. Some horses become very opinionated about who they like and who they don’t.

    For example, my uncle had some friends come over about 18 months ago. They had never ridden horses before so I gave them a brief lesson on feeding the horse apples out of their hands an leading them around for ten minutes

    The next time my uncle’s friends came over just over one year later- they went right into the paddock without any food. The horse cam up to them and looked for the apple.

    OK, maybe all horses do that, but I got the sense the horse recognised him.
