Rehome a horse with World Horse Welfare


We are an international horse charity that improves the lives of horses in the UK and around the world through education, campaigning, and hands-on care.

When our founder Ada Cole witnessed a procession of work-worn British horses unloaded at the docks of Antwerp and whipped for four miles to slaughter, she was determined to stop the appalling cruelty of these journeys. Ten years later our campaign succeeded, and almost 90 years on World Horse Welfare is still driven by the same desire to stop unnecessary suffering, using a practical approach and scientific evidence to deliver lasting change across the full spectrum of the horse world.

When you rehome from World Horse Welfare, not only are you offering a horse who may have had a poor start in life a loving home, but you free space at our Rescue and Rehoming Centres for more horses or ponies in need. We couldn’t continue our work without people like you!
