Horse Trust runs equine welfare training
Horse insurance customers might be interested to know that equine will be thoroughly looked after by local authorities in the future, after the Horse Trust held a series of welfare training courses recently.
The Equine Welfare Assessment and Handling Course was a two-day series of seminars held at a number of different locations in the last month and it is the first time these sessions have been made available to English authorities.
Welfare development manager at the Horse Trust and organiser of the event Liane Crowther said the training provides inspectors with the skills they need to effectively investigate equine welfare concerns in their communities.
"The training was well received and both courses were oversubscribed, which shows how seriously local authorities take equine welfare concerns," she added.
Horse Trust is into its 125th year and is the oldest equine charity in the world, having originally been established to help the plight of the working horses in London.
