Update from the Equine Ethics and Wellbeing Commission
Founded in June 2022, the Equine Ethics and Wellbeing Commission (EEWB) was created to address societal concerns related to the use of horses in sport and to provide an independent evidence based ‘framework’ to guide FEI regulations, policies and practices in relation to equine welfare and wellbeing. As part of their 18-month timeline, the Commission have already presented an interim report at the FEI General Assembly in Cape Town (RSA) in November 2022, and are expected to present an update on their activities and findings at the Sports Forum, in the lead up to their final report to be delivered at the FEI General Assembly 2023 in Mexico in November.
Detailed information on the composition, aims, work, and timelines of the EEWB Commission is available here.
The second part of the session on the work of the Equine Ethics and Wellbeing Commission will be dedicated to consultation and questions from the stakeholders community attending the Forum in-person and online. Open and extensive dialogue is very much encouraged.
