Story

A many as 3,500 horses are tethered across the UK at any one time.

Despite some guidelines, a majority of these animals are tethered in unsuitable conditions with severe and often cruel restrictions of their natural freedoms. Moreover, these animals are often tethered in locations that put them and the public at risk, such as roundabouts or by busy roads.

Section 9 of the Animal Welfare Act places a duty of care on the public to ensure they take reasonable steps, in all circumstances, to meet the welfare needs of their animals to the extent required by good practice.

Their fundamental welfare needs are for a suitable environment, for a suitable diet , to be able to exhibit normal behaviour patterns, to be housed with, or apart from other animals, and to be protected from pain, suffering, injury and disease.

HorseWorld believe that long-term tethering is a restriction on the natural liberties of animals and it should be made illegal to tether horses, donkeys, ponies and their hybrids for more that 24-hours.

Tethering often infringes on the animals need for a suitable environment, the need to be able to socialise with other horses and it can often cause pain, suffering and psychological damage. In every case where a horse is tethered for an extended period of time it can seriously inhibit the horses need to exhibit its normal behaviour; in short, to run, graze and be free to act and live as a horse naturally should.

We need your help to #BreakTheChain.

Together we can change this.

Your donations will continue us to help rescue, rehabilitate and rehome horses that have been tethered inhumanely.
