Special Issue Information
For equines, transport is the most stressful of management practices. Its interconnectedness with transport engineering, public safety, biosecurity, regulatory and social responsibility, animal and human behaviour and health reflects the emerging unifying concept of One Welfare. Transport practices are needed which acknowledge the horse’s needs to reduce a journey’s risk of adverse legal, financial, ethical, veterinary, and human health outcomes. This Special Issue of Animals offers a comprehensive study of the current science behind improved transport and the direct and indirect benefits for a spectrum of professional and layperson groups.
