Horse Welfare & Care

We're working for a world in which the welfare of horses is universally respected and protected, and in which all those who ride, drive or work with horses can do so safely, enjoyably and with the highest personal competence.

The British Horse Society and our dedicated network of 200 volunteer Welfare Advisers work hard to promote the prevention of neglect, cruelty and harm to horses and provide support, advice and education to horse owners to try and remedy problems before they become too serious.

BHS Welfare Advisers respond to around 2,000 welfare concerns annually. Thank you to everyone who takes the time to contact us and raise concerns.
