Why we need your help
The effects of these long journeys are varied but damaging to the horses involved, dehydration may kick in after as little as 8 hours: injury and illness can often follow. By the time horses complete their journey and reach the slaughterhouse – usually many days later – they are in pain, stressed and completely broken in spirit.
This unnecessary trade is not illegal. This is why we need your support, the support of people who really care about the welfare of these horses and ponies, now more than ever.
