Standards for Horse Care, U.C. Davis


Click on the link above to see this PDF from the University of California-Davis, 2014. It’s a valuable reference. Please take a moment and look: Not only does it describe good horse care practices, it literally shows them. There are photos of all aspects of feeding, shelter sizes, transport, and health care, as well as literal examples of the Body Condition Scoring system. There are also some great definitions of abuse, neglect, as well as a profile of abusers. This is a great resource.

    UC Davis’ publication on refeeding starving horses is also excellent.
