Australian PhD Researcher Seeking Opinions About Horse Welfare

Your opinions are invited around what you think works well in your equine activities. An initial information-seeking survey, run by the University of Melbourne, is looking into current welfare practices at events and in the home stable. It asks about anthropomorphism, sentience, animal agency and social license to operate. The survey, which is currently circulating, focuses on what is being ‘done well’ relating to horse welfare practices (practices are ‘the way we do things’).
