asked The Henley Centre to do three things.
1 To identify all the
parts which make up the industry and show how each
part contributes to the success of the whole.
2 To identify all currently
available sources of information on the horse
industry, assessing how reliable each piece of information is and making
suggestions for filling the most significant gaps in our knowledge.2
3 By listening to the
views of a wide variety of people involved with horses,
to identify the most important issues which need to be addressed in the
proposed long term industry strategy.
2We did not ask the researchers to do primary research (in other words, where
information was not currently available we did not ask them to generate that information). That would have been a much larger
task and would have taken many more months to complete.
