World Horse Welfare are our Official 2019 Equestrian Charity
World Horse Welfare is an international charity that has been improving the lives of horses in the UK and around the world for more than 90 years. They cover the full spectrum of the horse world – from elite sport horses to pet ponies, to working horses in the world’s poorest communities and those destined for slaughter.
World Horse Welfare supports the responsible use of horses in sport and is an independent welfare advisor to the FEI and the British Horseracing Authority.
World Horse Welfare has four Rescue and Rehoming Centres in Britain which care for around 300 horses at any one time – all from a variety of backgrounds and welfare situations and rescued by the charity’s national network of field officers. Each horse, pony or donkey undergoes rehabilitation before finding a loving new home on the charity’s rehoming scheme – and at the Royal Windsor Horse Show 2019 you’ll be able to meet some of the charity’s shining equine stars who show just how much can be achieved by rescue horses regardless of their past.
World Horse Welfare’s international programmes alleviate the suffering of working horses, donkeys and mules in 16 countries across Africa, Latin America and Asia where communities rely on horses for their livelihoods, and help horse owners access to the skills and resources they need to be able to care for their animals.
World Horse Welfare’s wide-ranging work will be showcased through its ‘World Horse Trail’ of stunning horse sculptures around the showground. Each one is designed by a different artist or celebrity to tell the story of a horse helped by the charity. More information to be announced very soon!
Royal Windsor Horse Show is proud to support the ABF The Soldiers’ Charity as our military Show charity.
The ABF give a lifetime of support to soldiers and veterans from the British Army, and their immediate families, when they are in need. They make grants to individuals through their Regiments and Corps and support a wide range of specialist charities that sustain the British Army ‘family’, both at home and around the world.
The ABF will be running a collection on the Saturday and Sunday of the Show and any donations will be gratefully received.
