Horse Management Plan for the Alpine Area of Kosciuszko National Park

This document examines the range of horse management methods available, including immobilisation using tranquillisers, fertility control, fencing, shooting and capture and removal methods and discusses some of the issues associated with each of the methods.

It also describes three capture and removal methods that are to be further trialed and evaluated, for their effectiveness in humanely removing horses from the alpine area and reducing environmental impacts. These three methods include trapping, roping and mustering, using horse riders under a contract arrangement.
