We welcomed international eventer and World Horse Welfare Patron Sir Mark Todd to chat to us about how he keeps his horses fit and healthy over the long winter months. Mark shared some of his top winter tips with us and explained how he manages his different horses, taking in account their age, current level of training and his future plans for them, when faced with cold, wet, short days.
Mark was joined by one of our Field Officers, Jon Phipps, who provided an insight into the types of welfare situations he’s likely to encounter during the winter months. Jon shared with us some ideas of how we, as owners, can make some simple changes to the way we manage our horses that can really make a big difference. Both Mark and Jon were on hand to answer any questions at the end of the session.
