Why we need your help

We help horses in need, anywhere in Britain, and one of those horses was a little cob called Barney. Despite being in a terrible state – starving, suffering from painful sores and with his coat matted with faeces – Barney’s spirit was undimmed, and he kept calling out for help.

Thanks to his determination, our Field Officers found Barney, along with a large number of other horses and ponies. The conditions they were being kept in were appalling, and they urgently needed to be removed to safety where they could receive the expert care they so desperately needed.

Field Officer Sarah says:

“When we go out to investigate after someone has reported a welfare concern to us, we never know quite what we’re going to find when we get there. Sadly, we discover horses in harrowing situations all too often, like poor little Barney. As this was such a big case, we worked alongside a number of other welfare organisations to get all the horses removed to safety, with the chance of a much brighter future ahead of them. None of this work would be possible without the generosity of the public supporting us through regular donations.”

Sadly, it was too late for Barney – despite the very best efforts of the team to nurse him back to health, he was just too weak and tragically he didn’t make it. However, thanks to his bravery, the 36 other horses and ponies who were rescued from the site did get a second chance.

Could you help by setting up a regular gift today to give other horses in need a brighter future?

Thank you for your consideration in supporting our work, we really do appreciate it.
