New Website to Help Horse Lovers Vote Smart
A new website has been launched by the International horse charity World Horse Welfare to help horse lovers vote correctly in the forthcoming general election.
The site contains information on the key issues facing horse welfare in the UK, the sorts of questions horse lovers could ask their local candidates, plus a facility to email your candidates.
It is hoping the upcoming election will help focus politician’s minds on issues that are important to their constituents. For everyone involved in horses these are likely to include issues such as the long-distance transportation of horses to slaughter in Europe, improving and enforcing the Animal Welfare Act, and the ever-increasing threat of exotic diseases.
Director of Campaigns, Jo White, said: “The General Election is an ideal opportunity to ask candidates what they aim to do about the issues, we, as horse-lovers, care about. If candidates hear from their constituents, they are more likely to move these concerns up the political agenda if they are voted in. Our 2009 SOS Survey highlighted that awareness and education still have a huge part to play to improve horse welfare in the UK, and the Government is key, particularly when it comes to improving and enforcing the Animal Welfare Act.”
