Did You Know? How the Eyes of a Horse Work:
Horses have large complex eyes that can see the horizon and the ground at the same time and don’t see clearly at a distance. They see movements and shapes better than specific details. They are “near-sighted” and their depth perception is not very strong. Prey animals have eyes on the sides of their head and predators have eyes on the front of their head. Horses’ eating habits dictate that their heads be at ground level most of the day and scan the horizon for predators at the same time. Their range of vision is about 300 degrees, except for an area of about three feet directly in front of and six feet behind them. Horses have both monocular and binocular vision. When a horse looks straight ahead, both fields of vision overlap and his vision becomes binocular, just like humans, and he gains some depth perception. In order to bring objects into focus, the horse will move his head up or down.
