Anthony Worm

Lifestyle

Founder and Director Anthony Worm wants to redefine what stables are.

Having spent a large portion of his career synthesising research findings about horse behaviour, zoology, vet science, evolutionary studies into stables and facility design, he believes that the traditional enclosed ‘tin shed’ stable won’t cut it. Considered and evidence-based design is the key to developing safe facilities to improve the welfare and performance of horses.

Having grown up on a dairy farm, Anthony is practical and hands-on as an architect. He brings expertise, knowledge and a spirit of curiosity to his work. His unique skillset and approach is sought after by local horse owners and trainers, as well as international researchers and organisations seeking to push boundaries and reimagine the future of equine welfare.

A natural synthesiser, he’s constantly thinking and exploring ways to solve problems through research, architecture and design. Anthony has established himself as a thought leader and educator, having worked as a course coordinator, lecturer and tutor of design, history, planning, property, project management and more at Deakin University and The University of Melbourne.

Anthony has designed a range of equine projects including agistment centres, rehabilitation facilities and racing stables, as well as privately owned facilities and property master plans. As an architect, each project has been designed in response to a unique set of requirements to support individual welfare interventions and the specific needs of the owners to create functional and robust facilities and enhance their combined value on horse (and human!) quality of life.

Friday November 15th

EQUITANA Classroom (Royal Block)

Welfare focussed facility design / property planning

Welfare-focussed facility design and property planning for horses and humans.
The horses’ evolutionary characteristics are at odds with our desire to house and train our horses in buildings. Providing functional and safe equine facilities for all the occupants seems straightforward, however convenience, tradition and hidden problems of our built environment can be detrimental to the horses’ welfare.

This presentation will provide a useful guide to the key aspects of good stables and facility design including: Horse requirements in relation to facilities; Planning and Arrangement (property analysis, orientation, functional requirements and visual connections); Construction and Materials (safety, durability, maintenance, flooring); and Ventilation.
