Royal opening for visitor centre and indoor arena
The World Horse Welfare recently welcomed The Princess Royal – honorary president of the charity – to open a new visitor centre and indoor arena.
This took place at the organisation's Belwade Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre near Aboyne in Scotland last week (September 19th).
Around 100 invited guests including community members, supporters, media and government attended Princess Anne's unveiling of a boulder plaque at the new venue.
The new developments include a new arena that will allow members of staff to carry out proper rehabilitation with horses and ponies all-year round.
World Horse Welfare is one of the oldest equine charities in the UK having been founded by Ada Cole in 1927.
Princess Anne said the facilities have the potential to change much for so many horses.
"There are a lot of thanks due to people who have supported the concept [of improving horse welfare], but do so not just by signing cheques, but who [rehome] the horses and the ponies," she continued.
