Denis Lynch pleased money is being put to good use
Equine insurance customers might be interested to learn that Irish showjumper Denis Lynch visited a horse rescue centre in Mallow, Cork, yesterday (December 6th) to check how his money raised was being put to use.
The rider, based in Germany, managed to raise €190,000 (£163,000) for the Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ISPCA) through friends on the Global Champions Tour to help tackle the equine crisis.
ISPCA honorary secretary Barbara Bent said the funds that Lynch somehow managed to raise have made a real difference to the way that equines can be treated in the country, Horse and Hound reports.
Lynch added: "It's very distressing when you read and see reports of any animal being mistreated or neglected but the care and attention they receive from the staff here does give you great hope."
According to charities such as the RSPCA and Redwings Horse Sanctuary, the number of equines abandoned in the UK has almost tripled in the last two years due to financial constraints.
