Horses, donkeys, mules, oxen, camels and buffalo have been used by humans in agriculture, horticulture, forestry, transport and food processing for many centuries. They provide a practical, renewable, low-impact alternative energy source for speciality operations and small-scale farming. Horses can also be used for weddings, funerals, scenic tours, therapeutic riding etc. Animal welfare is paramount and we would only seek responsible use of traction animals that respects their physical limits and their dignity.
