Abstract

he field of Equitation Science (ES) first emerged over a decade ago, and became more formally organized following the first ES workshop held at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies at the University of Edinburgh in 2004. Attended by some key animal scientists and equitation experts, discussions took place regarding a need for the integration of a more objective, evidence-based approach to equitation, to ensure that the welfare of the horse and rider/handler could be measured and consequently improved, through increasing our knowledge of the needs and challenges for horses used for pleasure and competition.
