World Horse Welfare recorded a record-breaking year for rehoming in 2020, as supporters “stepped up to the plate” despite the challenges caused by the pandemic.
While the charity was unable to rehome horses during the first lockdown, and had to make adaptations to the application and rehoming processes, it rehomed 356 horses during 2020. The previous record was 350 in 2015.
Deputy chief executive Tony Tyler said it was a “truly amazing achievement”, and down to the fantastic supporters who had offered horses and ponies homes.
