Abstract

This chapter covers the welfare issues associated with the use of horses in endurance riding. Endurance riding is described as well as the inherent risks of the sport. Regulations and standards that are followed in endurance riding are presented. Measures to avoid metabolic consequences in competition horses and the role of veterinarians in making decisions as to the competency and fitness of a horse for the sport are discussed. The risk factors related to endurance competition and common emergency conditions at endurance events are also presented. Other strategies to improve the welfare standards are outlined.
