This report details the first of three phases of a study, that aims to help pony clubs manage their horses for optimal health and performance (H&P). The investigators addressed the relevance of this research to pony clubs in the following ways:

• Obtaining approval/endorsement/input for this study at all levels of the Australian Pony Club Association
• Study design in 3 interdependent phases (e.g. phase 2 depends on phase 1 etc)
• Involving members of pony club directly in the research process as participants in all phases
• Dedicating stage 1 and 3 to qualitative social inquiry to ensure that pony clubs guide the direction of the research
