Recognition of pain in the ridden horse, rider asymmetry & inertial sensor based asymmetry assessment, Rider locomtion patterns and possibilities for improving rider skills, Structural and functional asymmetry of the equine athlete, The rider weight study, Effect of loading on behaviour and gait, Observations: Saddle movement and rider posture, Towards a horseback riding simulator with a realistic interactive riding sensation – the Robbie project, Equine industry, research and the future, Challenges to equine welfare and performance, What welfare issues have received media focus?, How will sport’s governing body face the future challenges?, How the saddlery industry is addressing the need for change.
