There are around 100 million working livestock (horses, donkeys and mules) in low- and middle-income countries. These animals help 600 million people globally feed themselves and their families.
We aim to share our work widely to encourage learning and stimulate debate on working equine welfare. We list our peer reviewed published papers with links to summaries or full texts wherever possible. A listing of our oral presentations at scientific conferences since 2012 is also provided.
We work with international institutions, national decision makers and implementers, international development organisations and animal welfare networks.
