Summary Horse welfare issues are coming increasingly to the forefront of animal issues. A 2005 economic impact study indicated that there are over 9.2 million horses in the United States with over 4.6 million people involved as horse owners, service providers, employees and volunteers. Over the past few years, the US Congress has discussed bills related to the transportation and slaughter of horses as well as the sale of wild free-roaming horses and burros. Additionally, concerns over the production of pregnant mare's urine for hormone replacement therapy (PMU ranching) led to the establishment of groups who placed animals in new homes after ranches were closed. Welfare and anti-cruelty legislation for horses exists in the United States at both the federal and state levels as well as in other countries worldwide. This document contains a comprehensive bibliography and extensive selection of Web site resources. Two papers introducing horse care and welfare issues are also included. Dr. C. Stull of the University of California at Davis presents an overview of equine issues in the United States and Dr. D. Mills of the University of Lincoln gives an introduction to worldwide equine ethics and concerns. It is hoped that this information resource is a starting point for all people who care and work with horses.
