There are many views concerning right and wrong practices in horse management. We are in favor of working with horses in various ways. However, quality-assured knowledge of regulations, welfare, biology, behavior and human-horse relationships should be taken into consideration.
The aim of NIBIO researchers is to help ensure that objective, research-based knowledge forms the basis for horse management in Norway. Within this lies the fundament of ethical horse training and use, learning theory principles and the constant research for horse welfare.
