Pippa Funnell and Alisa Wates’ WHW Welfare Wednesday webinar on horse welfare and the pressures of competition brought forward

Pippa Funnell and Alisa Wate’s Welfare Wednesday Webinar on horse welfare and the pressures of competition has been brought forward to Monday 12 December

In a move from its familiar Wednesday slot, Olympian Pippa Funnell and fellow eventer Ailsa Wates consider balancing the needs of the horse with the pressure of competition in the latest Welfare Wednesday Webinar.

This World Horse Welfare webinar will be held at 7pm on Monday 12 December – moved from the usual Wednesday slot due to The World Cup.

Pippa will be talking about how she and her team ensure the needs of their horses remain the number one priority while training and out competing.

Life as a top athlete – human and equine – comes with immense pressures but ensuring that the fundamental welfare needs of a competition horse are not overlooked is crucial to ensuring success both as an individual and for the sport as a whole. 

Pippa is being joined by Ailsa Wates, an eventer who is also proudly putting horse welfare at the forefront of her ambitions. 

From training and preparation, to transport and overnight stays, there are a lot of factors that Pippa and Ailsa consider to ensure that their horses are as happy in their role as possible. 

As always, the team will be delighted to answer any questions you may have at the end of the webinar.

By registering for the webinars through Zoom, you will be able ask questions during the Q&A, enjoy an interactive experience and to take part in the various polls.
