3rd International Equine Welfare and Wellbeing Conference

Call for abstracts

International renowned experts and scientist have confirmed their assistance to the conference as speakers, but we would like to hear from anyone working within the area of this year’s theme. Time allocated to talks at the conference will be 10-15 minutes, which includes time for questions.

Conference theme:

“A dimension to discover”

The idea behind the conference is to talk in positive terms of what we can do to improve wellbeing and motivation in horses.

If we focus on equine welfare from the perspective of the quality of life that the individual perceives, it is necessary to understand and explore the level of sentience, cognition, intrinsical motivation and autonomy that equines have or are capable of developing in optimal conditions.
