The Equine Science Society (ESS) promotes quality research on equine-related topics and strives to establish effective communication among researchers, teachers, extension personnel, and industry professionals regarding all aspects of equine science.

The society also holds biennial symposia and cooperates with other organizations who have similar or related interests.

The society recognizes the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion as essential qualities of a vibrant and successful organization.  We embrace diversity in our scientific and equestrian disciplines and in the identities and experiences of our members and stakeholders. We will strive to create opportunities for equity and inclusion and encourage active and meaningful participation for all of our members and clientele.
