RSPCA Animal Welfare Seminar 2023
Quit horsing around: Advancing horse welfare in Australia
Wednesday 22 and Thursday 23 February 2023
Horses play an important role in many people’s lives and in many different contexts including competition, racing, leisure, therapy and companionship. Throughout their lifetime, horses may be subjected to various interventions relating to their care, housing, training, exercise and general management. There has been some improvement in the welfare of horses in Australia – but there is still a long way to go. This Seminar brought together a diverse range of stakeholders to share knowledge, the current science and thoughts on the way forward to ensure all horses have a good quality of life no matter their connections or relationships with people. It’s time for Australia to get serious about improving horse welfare – horses deserve nothing less.
The RSPCA Animal Welfare Seminar 2023 was held online on the afternoons of Wednesday 22 and Thursday 23 February 2023.
A recording of the Seminar will be made available via our website after the event.
