Properly caring for your horse requires knowledge, skills and attention to many details. Knowing and monitoring the indicators of good health, paying attention to their vital signs, (e.g. temperature, pulse and respiration) and providing proper care to prevent, detect and, where possible, cure diseases are all the responsibility of a horse owner. The same goes for providing a healthy and safe living space for your horse.
Laws and codes of practice help ensure that minimum standards are agreed upon, made known and adhered to. By knowing and following best practices, you will have the best chance of providing your horse with a comfortable, and safe life.
