This subject will enable the student to understand the extent of the growing equine industry both in Australia and globally. Throughout this subject students will gain a working understanding of industry governance and operating processes and procedures, including workplace health and safety, legal aspects and duty of care. Common horse management and husbandry procedures will be examined and assessed in relation to globally agreed health and welfare indicators and codes of practice. During this subject students will also be given the opportunity to examine Indigenous Australian Cultural Competence and consider how lessons learnt can be applied within the equestrian context. On successful completion of this subject students will be able to demonstrate a full understanding of the ethical considerations associated with the management of industry resources, namely horses, humans and land.
