We want to celebrate our history!

The charity was founded to rescue redundant working horses in 1952, providing them with retirement instead of slaughter when vehicles and machinery were taking their roles. More about HorseWorld's history can be found here.

Do you have memories of HorseWorld during that time?

You might remember us as The Friends of Bristol Horses Society before the charity became known as HorseWorld? What was your involvement with the charity?

Or do you perhaps have memories of working horses in and around the Bristol area?

We want to hear from you!

Please send your stories, recollections and photos to
