A study into owner awareness and knowledge of equine infectious diseases in Honduras by Kirsten Anderson

Over the course of my project, I interviewed 130 owners from communities already within World Horse Welfare’s education programme and from communities we were visiting for the first time. I wanted to find out what diseases owners thought their horses might be at risk of, what symptoms they knew to look out for, how they thought their horses might become infected and what practices they had put in place to prevent disease.
