The Great Weight Debate (Equine)

The second special interest webinar in our series preceding the 29th National Equine Forum (#NEF21) was entitled "The Great Weight Debate (Equine)"., and took place on Wednesday 27th January 2021. Please scroll down for more information.

The equine obesity epidemic is ongoing – despite many attempts from industry to effect change. This webinar explores different perspectives from across the equestrian sector regarding what is preventing owners/carers from managing horse, pony and donkey weight effectively, and how these may be overcome. This is supported by a human behaviour change researcher. Conclusions and possible pathways for change will be presented at #NEF21.
