BHS Launches Rehoming Horse Scheme

Posted on | 0 Responses

The British Horse Society has launched a new rehoming scheme to help owners and their horses affected by the recession.

The scheme was launched to provide safe new homes for horses whose owners are no longer able to care for them.

In a statement the British Horse Society said: “We receive many requests for help from horse owners urgently seeking new homes for their horses. For most, the prospect of parting with their horse is heartbreaking but unavoidable. As many equine rescue centres are running at, or near to, capacity, finding a safe, experienced and knowledgeable home – and doing so quickly – is not always easy. The BHS has therefore established a rehoming scheme to help existing owners find suitable new homes for their horses.”

Anyone currently looking for a new horse will also have the opportunity to register their details with the BHS. This can either be for a ridden or companion horse or pony. The BHS will try to match up a horse wanted with those in need of a new home.

Graham Cory, chief executive, said: “At a time of economic difficulty like this, there are many horse owners who find themselves no longer able to care for their animals. It is crucial that horses in this situation are rehomed responsibly and safely. No organisation is better placed to assist with this than the British Horse Society and we are very excited to be launching our new rehoming scheme.”
