HRH The Princess Royal launches ‘Rehome a Horse Month’

The importance of rehoming horses received a Royal stamp of approval as HRH The Princess Royal launched ‘Rehome a Horse Month’ at World Horse Welfare’s Hall Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre on Thursday 30 June 2011.

The rising numbers of horses coming into rescue centres in the wake of the financial downturn, and the risks associated with buying horses, are just two of the reasons she gave as to why rehoming can be preferable to buying.

World Horse Welfare is declaring the month of July ‘Rehome a Horse Month’ to draw attention to the benefits of rehoming over buying, and to encourage anyone who can to rehome a horse.  Many of the charity’s horses – even those from the infamous Amersham case - can be useful and successful as ridden horses, as well as companions.

During her visit to World Horse Welfare’s Hall Farm in Snetterton, Norfolk, HRH Princess Royal, who is President of the charity, saw a display of the talents of many top quality rehomed horses and ponies, such as driving competition pony Yogi and 12 year-old Marston who showcased the discipline of horse agility.  She also met some of the horses ready to be rehomed or still being rehabilitated, spoke to the staff who ensure smooth running of the rehoming process and meet with some of the people who have rehomed horses.
