New IAHAIO international guidelines published for equine care, welfare, training and handling requirements in equine-assisted services
IAHAIO is excited to announce the publication of its new international guidelines for care, welfare, training and handling requirements for equines in equine-assisted services. These guidelines provide best practice guidance for meeting the care, training and welfare requirements for equines involved in delivering equine-assisted services. Examples include services that incorporate horses in therapy practice, in education and learning, and adaptive/therapeutic riding and horsemanship.
The guidelines were developed by an international task force of IAHAIO members and individual experts and relevant organizations working between 2018 and 2020. They are based on a review of evidence of current best practices and research.
IAHAIO hosted a webinar on this topic on 25 February. To download a recording of this webinar, click here.
