Advocating for continuous improvement in horse welfare is an important part of Horse SA’s work. We will continue to raise awareness of contemporary research as it becomes available. Resources such as The Five Domains Model and ‘Tips for the care of confined horses’ are resources that inform wholistic thinking including nutrition, environment, health, behaviour and mental state.
In recent years workplace safety educational events have included horse welfare as it relates to the work, sport or recreational employee and volunteer work context.
