Proposed new Code of Practice for the Welfare of Horses in the ACT

The ACT Animal Welfare Advisory Committee established by the Animal Welfare Act 1992 has undertaken a comprehensive review of the current Horses Code of Practice 1996 and determined that it  required considerable updating and redrafting. 

ACTEA has been identified as a key stakeholder in relation to reviewing this proposed new code of practice.

ACT horse owners are invited to comment on the new code via written submission to TCCS_GMSBoards-Committees@act.gov.au or pass any comments they may have on the proposed code to cflawence@homemail.com.au for inclusion in the ACTEA submission.

Consultation on the new Code of Practice for the Welfare of Horses in the ACT will run for six weeks, and will close on Friday, 17 June 2022 but ACTEA would need to receive your comments by 10 June.
