In the near future, in association with local riding schools and
rescue centres, we plan to start an equine welfare training
programme. Such a programme will involve training the general public

costs involved. Hopefully this will reduce the incidents of neglect
and abuse. Prevention is obviously preferable although at Horse

suffering. To continue our work we need all the support we can
