Welcome to the NordCAW seminar on Horse Welfare in relation to the use of horses in equestrian sport.
Equestrian sports engage many people, but faces several challenges, both in terms of protecting the welfare of horses and in terms of maintaining its social licence to operate. This seminar will highlight those challenges; How the use of horses in equestrian sport and equine equipment poses a risk to the horses’ physical and mental well-being if not being well managed, but also the ethical considerations regarding equestrianism and if we are on the right track.
