In Module One we looked at some general considerations for caring for your horse (e.g. the Five Freedoms).
In this module we examined some of the more specific requirements horses need. We then asked you to think about applying that knowledge as you considered the actual skills you might need when caring for your horse. How much water and food will they need? How often? How much space will you need to make sure they have? What kinds of living conditions will you need to ensure they have (e.g. airflow, light, etc.)?
You were also asked to apply some of your new knowledge. The volunteer job application asked you to consider, “What would you actually need to know and do as a volunteer caring for a horse?”
Finally, we looked at the topic of animal protection as provided for by the Codes of Practice and various forms of legislation at different levels of government.
To complete your introduction to the subject of responsible animal care, please complete the final activity of the module below.
