On the 1st of April 2022 the European Horse Network participated in the Equine Conference of the EU French Presidency: The Horse, an asset for the post-crisis world in France and in Europe.

120 participants from France and Europe attended the Conference in Saumur. Panellists from equestrian sport, horseracing, horse welfare and politicians agreed to say that the Covid crisis has pushed people back to nature and it is an opportunity for the equine world. Equines are still in need of recognition as the animal is not a pet but stands in between agriculture and sport. There is a need to improve the knowledge, the research and to invest in education and training for the equine to gain the place in society it deserves.
