AWRN Workshop on “How happy are equine athletes?”

The National Equine Welfare Council (NEWC) in collaboration with The Horse Trust, World Horse Welfare and the University of Liverpool is holding a virtual workshop on Tuesday 30th March 2021 to discuss the concept of the happy equine athlete and how we can tell if the horses we are working with are indeed ‘happy athletes’. The aim of the workshop is to provide a platform for discussion and collaboration between representatives of the equestrian sporting disciplines (primarily dressage, eventing, showjumping, and endurance) and researchers investigating scientific approaches used to assess an animal’s quality of life (QoL).


This virtual workshop will be run on Zoom (9.00-17.00) and includes presentations by representatives from the equine welfare sector, academia, and equestrian sports. In addition, delegates will be invited to join Focus Group sessions to discuss the topics presented and their application within equestrian sport.
