WATCH: Ian Stark, World Horse Welfare Go Behind Scenes at Badminton Horse Trials 2014

13 May 2014
World Horse Welfare

UK - Three times winner of Badminton Horse Trials, Ian Stark joined World Horse Welfare at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials 2014 last week to talk horse safety with British Eventing’s National Safety Officer, Jonathan Clissold and Badminton Horse Trials vet, Richard Hepburn.

The documentary film put together and edited by World Horse Welfare explores how British Eventing data collated over time has helped to improve safety, how vet services are as important as the event itself and just how much thought and preparation goes into horse welfare and safety at events like Badminton.

The film underlines World Horse Welfare’s support for the responsible use of horses in sport and experience as independent welfare advisor to the FEI and British Horseracing Authority that safety measures need not detract the spectacle from sporting events – thus Jonathan and Richard talk safety for the benefit of horse and rider and Ian talks of thrilling fences.
