Happy Thanksgiving to one and all! Thank you all so much for your support this year.
This week in Planet Equestrian, we go deep into the issue of “animal sentience” – a phrase you will no doubt wish to add to your vocabulary. Do animals have the ability to think, to experience emotions, to feel pain? Of course we all know they do, but it seems the British Parliament may disagree. Or not. We explore both sides of that argument here, and offer a link to one of several petitions making the rounds.
We also offer a redux of the FEI General Assembly which took place Nov. 21. If you prefer watching to reading, you can watch a video replay of the proceedings here. And as usual, we bring you a roundup of the most recent results from competitions all over the world.
