The Australian Horse Welfare & Well-Being Toolkit has been launched this week by the Australian Horse Industry Council (AHIC) in Melbourne to assist the work of horse welfare officers. There are some good ideas and suggestions for those who host equine shows and events in this country.
The Australian toolkit includes volunteer job overviews, tips for preparing incident management plans, media management and mentoring club members. "This guide will help community volunteers plan and manage public events involving horses," the organization noted.
The resource was developed with the support of the Australian Animal Welfare Strategy.
