Equine Welfare Scientists visit the Jeanne Marchig Centre

Earlier this week, we were pleased to welcome researchers in the field of equitation science to Edinburgh to spend the day testing and demonstrating the extremely sensitive technology associated with the measurement of different pressures (rider inputs) associated with equitation.
With the cooperation of colleagues from the Scottish National Equestrian Centre and Oatridge College, scientists from Anglia Ruskin University, Duchy College and Nottingham University were able to work together to develop measurement protocols to enable us to gain a better understanding of the complex interaction between horse and rider. The aim of the work is to use the information gained through these studies to improve the welfare of the horse when under saddle, in hand or driven.
