Animal Welfare Extends From Equine To Elephants - Supporting Inaugural Ball

Animal Welfare Extends From Equine To Elephants - Supporting Inaugural Ball

The innovative teachings of esteemed animal behaviourist Andrew McLean have benefited countless horses and riders internationally and been furthered by his successful family run organisations Equitation Science International and the AEBC.


The Human Elephant Learning Programs (a passion project for Andrew) was founded in 2009 and brought together a team of volunteers who answered the call to improve the welfare of working elephants in Asia. We are proud to be supporting this progressive foundation and we ask that you join us at H-ELP’s inaugural charity dinner on June 17th at the Mornington Racecourse. Tickets can be purchased below.

Be educated and entertained by Founder of H-ELP Andrew McLean who will provide insight into the history, achievements and goals of the foundation.

H-ELP aims to and has well and truly started improving the welfare of working elephants, through the systematic application of humane, evidence based training. Your attendance at our charity event will further advance the welfare and safety of elephant handlers and trainers.

This, the organisation’s first fund-raising dinner, will be held at the newly renovated 'Peninsula Room' at the Mornington Racecourse, from which 100% of proceeds will begin our quest of raising $10,000 for our next Mahout Workshop in India.

Discover the future project of H-ELP with event sponsors Peter Horobin Saddlery, who along with Dr Andrew McLean, will be taking on the challenge of developing a saddle designed for riding elephants on anti-poaching patrols. Peter Horobin, renowned saddle maker will present the ideas behind the design, and how it will improve the comfort and welfare of working elephants.
