Research Update

ISES recognises that research should be positioned in the context of the needs of both horse and human.  ISES has developed a coherent strategic vision for research that links with its strategic plan, identifies priorities and expectations (primarily the conduct of applied research that serves the needs of equine industry stakeholders as well as the wider equine community) and is underpinned by an ‘excellence with impact’ theme. ISES embraces the diverse ways in which research-related knowledge and skills have a beneficial impact on individuals, organisations and general equestrian practice, which include:  

  • Increasing the effectiveness of education and policy in relation to equine welfare;
  • Enhancing equine quality of life in relation to associations with humans; and
  • Fostering the development of enhanced awareness of ethical training methods. 

 

Therefore we present a Research Update for different field of Equitation Science.
