Celebrating 90 Years of Making Horses Visible

2017 is an important year for World Horse Welfare as the charity celebrates its 90th anniversary. Founded in 1927 by Ada Cole to stop the live transport of horses to slaughter across Europe, the charity was formerly named the International League for the Protection of Horses. Nine decades  on and World Horse Welfare continues to be the voice of invisible horses all over the world from those who suffer neglect and welfare problems in silence across the UK to the many thousands of working horses ignored by Governments and policymakers to those subjected to the torture of travelling hundreds of miles across Europe to slaughter.
