Equine Research Projects

I recently had the opportunity to catch up with a friend whom I studied with at the Irish National Stud.  It’s hard to believe, but that was more than 10 years ago.  She now runs her own business Ethonova.  This French based business is involved in a lot of equine research projects related to equine welfare.

Claire talked with me of some of her current projects and there seemed to be a theme that caught my interest.  There are so many things we still don’t know about horses.  And there are many things we can do better or more efficiently.  Claire’s focus is on improving horse welfare.  She has clients who have product ideas to increase the ease with which horses are handled.  The focal point is often on improving welfare of the horse by decreasing stress in situations – such as with loading onto a dark, enclosed float/trailer.

Equine Research Projects

A lot of these projects need funding and support from universities so that the studies can be carried out.  Once a particular management aspect or product can be proven to improve results or a horse’s welfare, then funding can be sought to promote a particular product for sale and use within the industry.

Equine research projects can be a great way to gain backing and funding for a product idea that you may have.  Being able to work within an educational institution can help to ensure that the studies are carried out professionally.  Plus they are done in as short a timeframe as possible and you can gain funding to support the project.  If you have a research idea, it may be worth reaching out to your local equine institution.  See if you may be able to partner with them on an equine research project.
