Equine Welfare Support for Equine Assisted Service Providers and Practitioners – a supportive welfare visit to your site

We can arrange for our friendly, knowledgeable equine welfare specialists to visit your site to discuss the individual welfare needs of your own equine partners. This can include:

  • General care and management
  • Workload and variety
  • Specific care or behavioural concerns
  • Equine assessment and record keeping

We have a no-shame, non-judgemental approach and have dealt with every kind of equine welfare and management situation over the past 30 years.

Cost: to be discussed based on your location.  We would appreciate a donation towards our travel expenses.  However, our time onsite for equine welfare purposes is free as it’s part of our core welfare outreach work.  As an equine welfare charity we are here for all horses and ponies, and the people who care for them.

Times: to be agreed with you depending on the number of equines

Location: at your site
