Zoe Gammon is originally from Suffolk (England). Throughout her time with horses, Zoe's interest in horse welfare grew and she decided to move from Spain, where she grew up, to England to pursue a bachelor's degree in Equine Studies at Coventry University. Her dissertation was an investigation into the cultural compa-rison between attitudes towards equine welfare in England and Spain. After obtaining her degree, she under-took a Masters in Animal Law and Society at the Autonomous University of Barcelona where her interest in sport horses and their welfare was the focus of her thesis. Zoe has professional experience in the equine industry centring on volunteer work within the charity sector. This has ranged from rehabilitating rescue horses in the south of Spain, to being part of Association Proyecto Caballo helping organise and host their international equine welfare confe-rence promoting educational talks to equestrians around the world.
