The welfare of horses is in our hands.
As a horse owner you have a legal obligation to care for your horse/horses properly. But, as horse owners, we also have a moral obligation, not only with our own horses welfare, but also with the welfare of others.
If you have any concerns re the welfare of horses, you should report those concerns. The following are suggestions regarding who to contact:
If you are reporting a welfare case which you feel requires urgent veterinary attention, contact a local vet and the RSPCA.
You can contact the British Horse Society who have welfare officers throughout the country: https://www.bhs.org.uk Welfare concerns can be reported to the BHS Welfare department on 02476 840571 or 02476 840574. Alternatively, you can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
World Horse Welfare (formerly the ILPH) also have welfare officers who can investigate cases in your area. You can call their freephone hotline number 08000 480180. See more on their website: http://www.worldhorsewelfare.org/contact/in-the-uk
