Balancing the needs of the horse with the pressure of competition

with Pippa Funnell and Ailsa Wates

Once again, we welcomed Pippa Funnell to talk to us about how she and her team ensure the needs of their horses remain the number one priority whilst training and out competing. 

Life as a top athlete comes with immense pressures but ensuring that the fundamental welfare needs of a competition horse are not overlooked is crucial to ensuring success both as an individual, and for the sport as a whole. Pippa is joined by Ailsa Wates, a young rider who is proudly putting horse welfare at the forefront of her ambitions. 

From training and preparation, to transport and overnight stays, there are a lot of factors that Pippa and Ailsa consider to ensure that their horses are as happy in their role as possible. 

As always, the team answered questions from the live viewing audience at the end of the webinar.
