The protection of the nature of horses in the equine sports industry

coberta del llibre

Horses’ lives originated on large plains among their herds, moving and grazing for 16 to 20 hours a day, socialising and constantly communicating with each other. While horses are adaptable to captivity, it is fundamental to remember that domestication did not rid them of their nature or the needs they evolved with. How are these needs reflected in the current legislation, regulations, and management practices of the UK’s equine sporting industry? This book offers an insight into the importance equestrians in the sporting industry place on the nature of horses in sport. Their views and opinions highlight just how important it is for the industry to adapt to the developments which have taken place in the past decade both scientifically and socially to ensure the future participation and success of the horse sport industry.
