The Eagala team is accountable to the standards set by Eagala's Code of Ethics, and those set by each team member's professions, namely mental health and horse welfare ethical codes.
Horse Welfare: Eagala has formally endorsed the American Horse Council's Welfare Code of Practice, and supports international welfare codes that have been established worldwide by individual countries and international equine associations. Eagala equine specialists are required to adhere to local and global horse welfare codes.
Dear Eagala Members:
As Chair of the Ethics Committee, I look forward to working with all of you in maintaining high ethical standards in the work we do. As professionals who have chosen to associate ourselves with the Eagala name through certification and membership, we are honored to play a part in upholding these standards to ensure the ongoing integrity and reputation of our certification and industry.
The committee is here as a resource to initiate discussion, address questions, and provide education on ethical practice in Eagala Model work. It is our hope and goal that you share our focus in this area and will ask yourself ethical focused questions in all the work you do.
The committee is also here to address submitted concerns regarding the practices of Eagala members. The committee has generated a protocol and procedures for handling ethical complaints. Click here to view the Eagala Ethics Protocol.
I would encourage members to first address concerns they may have directly with each other to try and resolve them. This is useful as many times an individual may have overlooked or not thought about the issue and in being made aware of it, it can be resolved directly.
If this process does not work, then a formal complaint can be made in writing with contact information provided, signed and mailed to the Chair of the Ethics Committee, c/o Eagala, or you can contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to assisting the organization and its members in maintaining high standards of ethical practice.
Chair, Eagala Ethics Committee
