Module 4: Humane Handling

Module Description

The type of contact between people and animals has a strong impact on animal welfare. A horse can perceive a negative handling experience fearfully. When a horse is fearful, its stress responses increase and its well-being is reduced.

In this module we examine how risks and hazards should be avoided when approaching, handling and moving horses.
