Having looked after a horse myself, I understand how demanding it can be.
They are a big responsibility and the costs of their care can soon add up.
You have to consider everything from feed to riding equipment, health care and tools for grooming.
I have heard of horses being neglected because their owners have underestimated the cost and effort it takes to keep them.
I’m now working with Fixers to ensure that more people understand exactly what looking after a horse entails - before they make a commitment to owning one.
Horses in Clover Animal Sanctuary
The animal sanctuary supported my Fix by allowing us to take pictures for the poster campaign there.
