Spring 2020: Sick and Injured Horses Appeal

Meeting the costs of caring for sick and injured horses is a very real and never-ending challenge. This Spring we desperately need generous donors like you to support our work rehabilitating and rehoming former thoroughbred racehorses.

Story

As the coronavirus disaster unfolds impacting on human health, please think about the knock-on effect on our sick and injured horses, as The Racehorse Sanctuary team struggles to cope.

Horses are flight animals and can easily hurt themselves. Thoroughbreds fare best with a purpose in life and for many this is racing. Horse Welfare Board sets the highest possible standards for racehorse welfare for life, but nevertheless injuries still happen. Even our older former racehorses can injure themselves in their paddocks in a fit of exuberance, despite our level of supervision, or they can fall sick.

Through our Peter O'Sullevan High Dependency Unit we will take on rehoming even the more difficult rehabilitation cases, where an injured racehorse need time to recover, or time for us to get into its head. The costs for this are very much higher, than simply matching a horse to a lifetime keeper. In some cases, we have a happy horse, for whom we cannot find a safe home: to them we provide sanctuary for life,

Our veterinary bills can be horrendous, as in the case of our poster boy Warrior, who even after five years with us still needs veterinary checks and a specialist farrier to look after his feet. We will not give up on our sick and injured horses, where they have the prospect of a good quality of life in our care. Please donate generously to help us to help them, for life.
