The National Equine Welfare Council is supporting the National Equine Health Survey and are urging owners and keepers of horses and ponies to take part in the survey between 23-30th May, to help improve the future wellbeing of horses everywhere.
It is an illegal offence to abandon any animal, with a possible 51 week prison sentence, a fine up to £20,000 – or both. NEWC has seen an increase in the number of abandoned horses over the last few years and reports of horses straying on roads, abandonments at livery yards, and horses being dumped on private or council land have increased.

The National Equine Welfare Council C.I.C. works to protect horses, ponies, donkeys and mules, by providing support, guidance and a communication forum to equine organisations, businesses and charities to help raise equine welfare standards nationwide.
Six welfare charities have issued an updated report about the current equine crisis in the UK, entitled “Left on the verge: In the grip of a horse crisis in England and Wales”.
