Horse Welfare Board

15 May 2024

British racing’s independently-chaired Horse Welfare Board was established in 2019.

The sport’s five-year strategy, “A life well-lived”, was launched in February 2020 and considers the whole of the racing industry, including sectors not currently fully regulated by the British Horseracing Authority (BHA), and looks across the lifetime of all horses bred for racing.

Multiple workstreams are underway covering projects ranging from traceability, training, obstacle improvement and development, through to welfare funding. The strategy can be read in full HERE.
