Welfare and well-being
Advocating for continuous improvement in horse welfare is an important part of Horse SA’s work.
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.
Past projects coordinated by Horse SA include the Australian Horse Welfare & Well-being Toolkit, Australian Horse Welfare Protocol, Welfare pocket-guide, and the AHIC welfare check-list for organisations.
