We Rescue, Rehabilitate and Rehome to improve the lives of neglected horses


Today I did a really stupid thing and signed up to race against 19 other people, dressed as pantomime horses, at Bath Race Course on 1st June. I will be racing as Horace the HorseWorld mascot.

Horace's head alone weighs over a stone and I am not expected to survive without injury due to limited visibility. I may also be a shadow of my former self as temperatures inside the suit have been known to reach excessive degrees of heat. Add to that my fitness levels are not what they were in my younger stallion days and I'm sure that I'll come out of this more than a little hoarse!

Check out my online training blog at where you will be kept updated with all my antics!

Please please sponsor me and make this all worthwhile - not just a horrible character building exercise! All funds raised will go towards the Ashley Brixey HorseWorld fund to help horses, ponies and donkeys in need.

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: HorseWorld will receive your sponsorship faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.

So please sponsor me now!

Many thanks for your support.
