The British Horse Society (BHS) and their dedicated network of 200 volunteer Welfare Officers work hard to promote the prevention of neglect, cruelty and harm to horses.
BHS Welfare Officers provide support, advice and education to horse owners to try and remedy problems before they become too serious. In more serious cases they work with partner organisations to reach the best possible resolution for the horses and people involved.
For more information please refer to the BHS website
Throughout the UK, horses are managed and kept in many different ways. Sometimes we may not agree with the way in which a horse is kept but if its needs are being met and the horse is not suffering, then it is unlikely that any action can be taken. Please see the BHS page, What is a Welfare Concern?, for some of the reasons that horses should be reported to them.
