Horse wel­fare and Wilt­shire Horn sheep

World Horse Wel­fare is an in­ter­na­tional char­ity which has been im­prov­ing the wel­fare of horses in the UK and over­seas through ed­u­ca­tion, cam­paign­ing and hands-on care since 1927.

“Our four UK Res­cue and Re­hom­ing Cen­tres are filled with horses and ponies at all stages of their re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion and we are faced with more ur­gent cases of suf­fer­ing ev­ery day,” said the char­ity. “In the ded­i­cated care of our teams, horses and ponies are nur­tured back to health and then found lov­ing new homes through our re­hom­ing scheme which is the largest of its kind in the UK.

“Our in­ter­na­tional pro­grammes across 13 coun­tries help work­ing horses in Africa, Latin Amer­ica and Asia. Cam­paign­ing is

Bet­ter sys­tem

“We are also at the fore­front of press­ing gov­ern­ment for a bet­ter sys­tem of equine ID and trace­abil­ity, dis­ease pre­ven­tion, tougher laws on fly-graz­ing and bet­ter en­force­ment of the laws in place to pro­tect horses. Our ul­ti­mate goal is to achieve sus­tain­able wel­fare im­prove­ments that will have the great­est pos­si­ble im­pact on the great­est num­ber of horses in the UK and Europe.

“Your gift could al­low more horses like Mrs Potts and Jodi (pic­tured) to re­cover from ne­glect and live a life worth liv­ing, re­lieve the pain of work­ing horses who sus­tain im­pov­er­ished fam­i­lies and give horses an even louder voice in our cam­paigns for laws to pro­tect them. Gifts in wills can help us to do all this.” To re­quest more in­for­ma­tion about leav­ing a gift in your will to help horses, please tele­phone: 01953 497225 or visit www.world­horsewel­fare.org/Last­ing-Gifts
