Our promise to you, as every gift in a Will enables us to ensure the future of the horses you love.

Founded in 1927 by Ada Cole, World Horse Welfare started as a campaigning organisation to prevent the suffering of horses destined for slaughter. We continue to work tirelessly to improve the lives of horses in the UK and across the globe through education, campaigning and hands-on care. Our work covers the full spectrum of the horse world from rescuing and rehabilitating in the UK, to advising equine authorities on welfare matters, to developing sustainable projects helping working horses overseas. 

We are committed to continuing our work to achieve a world where every horse is treated with respect, compassion and understanding. A legacy gift to World Horse Welfare is a gift to the horses you love and a promise for their future.
