Visitors are amazed to see behind the scenes at busy rescue centre

Animal rescue charity, HorseWorld held a special day where supporters could see behind the scenes of a busy working rescue centre last Saturday and Sunday. The tours were full to capacity as people came to look around HorseWorld’s welfare department in Whitchurch, Bristol.

“The farm is not normally open to the public and many people were surprised to see how big it is.” Said HorseWorld’s Equine Husbandry Manager, Joanne Vaughan. “We do not often get the opportunity to show people the core rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming work that we do, most of which happens on this farm.

“On Sunday we had a very special Guest, Councillor Martin Veal Chairman of B&NES Council who is pictured with our Managing Director, Mark Owen, HorseWorld Grooms Caitlin and Vicky and the lovely Ernie

“We displayed pictures of recent rescues and had a few of the horses available for people to see now that they are nursed back to health. Since the visitor centre closed in February, the animals based there have moved to the welfare department where they have much more space and are able to live in a more natural environment. Visitors were able to see the whole of our estate on a tractor tour and get up close and personal with some of our rescued equines. We hope to run more events like this for our widespread supporters in the future.”
