Post Equine Research Survey


Equine Guelph and the University of Guelph are currently conducting a study on the awareness of current research among members of Ontario's horse industry - the study aims to measure who in the equine industry is accessing University of Guelph research, how they are accessing it, and whether the information changes their practices. In order to assess this we are asking members of the industry (riders, athletes, owners, veterinarians, and equine business owners) to complete a short online survey. In it you will be asked about your involvement with the horse-industry and your sources for horse-related information and any experiences with University of Guelph equine research. Participation in the survey is completely voluntary and anonymous and should take no more than 30 minutes. If you are under the age of 18 please seek consent from your parent or guardian before completing this survey.

Below you will find the link to the survey, which contains an information letter describing the project and your role as a participant. I encourage you to read the information letter before completing the survey, and please do not hesitate to contact the research team with any questions you may have. The contact information is included in the link.

While our project is targeted at the Ontario horse industry, we would be more than happy to see national and international opinions!

The survey will close on February 1, 2015.

Thank you very much for your time,

Erin Massender
Research Assistant

There are only two weeks left in the Equine Guelph Research Uptake Survey. Be sure to have your say in informing the communication and research priorities for Ontario equine research! Many thanks to all participants!

One of the better surveys to come through. :)

And, we always ask, but to my knowledge no one has complied, but... Please return and let us know some of the trends shown by your survey.

The only problem with such surveys is that with the question Of trust in farrier/vet, yes, I 100% trust both that I used, however there are many in the area that I would not!

Hello boots and Foxhunter,

Thank you for your comments and participation! I will certainly post a few trends or a link to the final report. I expect it to be completed by mid February.

Foxhunter, I will make a note of the ambiguity around that question. Personally,I would have to agree, particularly with farriers.
