Well-being and Care posters for Equitation Science International and Horse SA.  The principles apply to the care of elephants as well as horses.  The information developed (and the posters evolved) from workshops Dr Andrew McLean of ESI held in Asia and Australia. Dr Andrew McLean: “Equitation science is an extremely exciting new field, changing the traditional methods of horse training to a clear, ethical and systematic approach.”
