Webinar: Day in the Life of a Sports Horse

How can top equine athletes be managed with a focus on positive welfare?

On Wednesday 27 March at 7pm (GMT), World Horse Welfare are delighted to be joined by two Olympians, international eventer Sam Griffiths and Grand Prix dressage rider Richard Davison March, to spend an evening discussing a day in the life of the horses at both these top rider’s yards.

Ever wondered how top equine athletes can be managed with a focus on positive welfare? The evening will include a discussion about how they maximise positive welfare experiences for equine athletes and why this is such an important part of managing sports horses.

Roly Owers, World Horse Welfare’s CEO, will chair the evening and the structured discussion, and then Sam and Richard will participate in a live Q&A. REGISTER HERE
