Abstract In accordance with the Welfare Quality® (WQ) approach, an integration model has been constructed for the calculation of scores for welfare criteria for horses, based on expert opinion. A total of 10 experts were consulted during four 1-day sessions. Similar to the consultation of experts in previous projects that were part of WQ, experts were asked to assign scores to predefined situations and/or outcomes on virtual farms. These scores were then processed in agreement with the mathematical methodology that was developed within WQ (Botreau, 2008; Bonde et al, 2009). This report describes the methods proposed to calculate criterion-scores for horses.
