Two important surveys are running at the moment: The World Horse Welfare Great British Horse Survey 2010 and the Horse & Country TV Have Your Say survey, and we hope you'll take the time to fill in both.
The charity seeks to find out more about horse owners, riders and their animals. With questions on a range of issues, including practical problems facing those looking after horses and general perceptions of welfare standards, the aim is to create the most complete picture of the equine community ever held in Britain.
Elite eventing star and trustee of World Horse Welfare, Pippa Funnell MBE, is lending her support to the survey. She is urging all those involved in the equine community, in any capacity, to go online and have their say. Pippa said: “People often do not realise the scale of equine abuse which still exists in the UK. Britain certainly has a reputation as a nation of horse lovers, but with an increasing number of abuse cases, it seems we are in danger of tarnishing it. This survey is a great opportunity for those people who love and enjoy horses to offer their views about what they think are the most pressing issues facing the equine community.”
