Project Details


There are over 100 million working equids worldwide supporting the livelihoods of some of the world's poorest people. Thus, improving working equid welfare produces wide-ranging improvements to the health and wellbeing, not just of the animals themselves, but also the people that depend on them. This multidisciplinary project draws on human psychological research and methods from animal behaviour and development studies to gain an understanding of the welfare requirements of equines, the challenges faced by working equids and the people they support and seeks to devise practical ways to deal with these challenges.
