  • identification of the equidae;
  • taxe rules applicable to equine activities;
  • betting regulations;
  • welfare standards.

A broader European Union context and a review of existing rules and potential reforms for each of these countries are specified: France, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Spain, The Netherlands, Poland, Romania, United Kingdom, Sweden.

The chapters structure allows the reader to find and target efficiently the pertinent information.
