REGISTER FOR THE FIRST EQUINE WELL-BEING DAY

20 October 2021

Thursday 28 October from 9am in the VIP Village

Created on the initiative of the Steering Committee of the Equita Lyon Health Area and sponsored by the French Equestrian Federation, the Equine Well-being Day will address the relationships between horses and humans and how people can ensure the well-being of their horses. The morning session is devoted to a scientific analysis of the history of the bond between horses and humans, while the afternoon session will be devoted to discussions and exchanges with the various guests. The aim of this inaugural event is to improve knowledge of best practices and encourage a change in habits, which is sometimes undoubtedly necessary.

Being aware of how important this subject is, Equita Lyon and the French Equestrian Federation have decided to make this day accessible to as many people as possible.

Participation in the first Equine Well-being Day is therefore free of charge, upon registration.

The speakers include the French historian Eric Baratay, a specialist in the history of human-animal relations, Vincent Boureau, a behavioural veterinarian and President of the AVEF's Horse Well-being and Behaviour Commission, the rider Michel Robert and Vanina Deneux, a research engineer in sociology at the IFCE (French Horse and Equestrianism Institute). They will address the question of "What place will horses have in society tomorrow and what are the key challenges for the future?", a highly topical issue.
