In certain situations it may be necessary to restrain a horse for its own safety, for the safety of other horses or those, who handle the horse. Means of restraint could for example be the use of a twitch or a restraining box for veterinary treatment, or the use of hobbles on a mare during natural breeding to protect the stallion. When a horse need to be restrained the mildest method should be applied, and only for the time absolutely necessary. Restraint should never be a substitute for good management. For example a twitch should not be used on a horse to ease braiding, and hobbles should not be used to prevent a horse from kicking the side of its box. In the latter case the reason for kicking should be sought and corrected.
Most sports organisations have very comprehensive rules on doping. This includes withdrawal periods for medicines used for treating disease or injury, which go beyond the time of full recovery, and a ban on the use of substances, which would normally not imply a welfare problem. Thus animal welfare concerns only cover some aspects of the sports organisations’ rules on doping. Administration of any substance or method, which aims at improving the performance of a horse beyond its capacity or disguising a disease or a painful condition, should be avoided. This does not only include inappropriate use of medicine, but also for example methods that either increase or decrease limb sensitivity.
Horses are used in a number of different contexts, such as sport, leisure, tourism, in therapy and as working horses. No matter the context in which a horse is used, the recommendations in these guidelines will apply. When purchasing a horse consideration should be given to the cost of keeping a horse, and to the intended use of the horse compared to the skills of the person, who is going to use the horse. It is advisable that persons, who do not have appropriate prior experience in keeping or using a horse, seek appropriate advice prior to purchasing a horse. Below are mentioned some of the challenges, which horses or their owners may face in relation to sport and tourism.
Most sports organisations (racing, show jumping, dressage, eventing, endurance riding, driving, polo etc.) have standards or codes of conduct, which aim to help ensure the welfare of horses while they are taking part in competitions or races.
This may include rules on what tack can be used, on training methods during warming-up for the competition, on when pregnant mares can no longer compete or race, on use of whip and spurs, and on illegal substances or methods (doping).
