Assessing emotion in animals is fundamental to the study of animal welfare with methodologies for reliable and valid assessments being highly desirable. Qualitative Behaviour Assessment (QBA) is based on the assumption that human observers are capable of integrating details of animalsâ behavioural expressions using descriptors (e.g. calm, playful) that reflect the animalsâ putative emotional experiences. Our study aimed at assessing how treatments assumed to induce different short-term emotional states of both positive and negative valence would affect the observersâ judgements of horsesâ behavioural expressions. To this end, 16 horses were each exposed to two positive (grooming, food anticipation) and two negative treatments (food competition, waving a plastic bag) while being video-recorded. Using a Free Choice Profiling methodology, fifteen observers who were blind to treatment were asked to describe and score the horsesâ behavioural expressions based on 45Â s long video clips. General Procrustes Analysis revealed consensus between the observersâ judgements. Three main dimensions of behavioural expression were identified, explaining 84.7% of the variation between horses. Dimension 1 (D1) was positively associated with the terms âcalm/relaxed/contentâ and negatively with the terms ânervous/stressedâ, whereas dimension 2 (D2) was described as ranging from âirritated/impatient/angryâ to âfrightened/insecureâ, and dimension 3 (D3) was labelled as ranging from âcurious/interestedâ to âaggressive/irritatedâ. Linear mixed-effect models revealed an effect of treatment on the horse scores on all three dimensions (D1: F4,60Â =Â 86.90, pÂ <Â 0.0001; D2: F4,60Â =Â 69.57, pÂ <Â 0.0001, D3: F4,60Â =Â 11.05, pÂ <Â 0.0001). In line with our hypotheses, horses were judged as âcalm/relaxed/contentâ (D1) during grooming, whereas they were assessed as âstressed/nervousâ (D1) and âinsecure/frightenedâ (D2) when exposed to the plastic bag. In the two food treatments (food anticipation, food competition), horses were judged as âirritated/impatient/angryâ (D2). However, on dimension D3, horses during food anticipation were also assessed as more âcurious/interestedâ than in any other treatment. Our study demonstrates that observers showed consensus in their assessment of horses that were exposed to positive and negative short-term treatments and that they could differentiate between these treatments consistent with our hypotheses. Our results indicate that QBA is a promising tool to complement animal welfare assessments in situations of multiple emotional dimensions of both positive and negative valence.
