HorseWorld Tack Sale - Donated tack raises money for neglected and mistreated horses

Welfare Manager Jerry Watkins with some of the donated tack.The equine welfare charity has an on-site charity tack shop based at its award-winning Visitor Centre in Whitchurch which is open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10am till 2pm. Debbie Walsh who runs the tack shop explains, "We are lucky to have supporters who donate tack and rugs to us, and any that we can't use for the rescued horses are sold to raise vital funds. At the moment we have a surplus of quality saddles and not enough space to display them so they really must be sold and we will accept any sensible offer that is made!  A new saddle can be extremely expensive so we hope that this will give people the chance to buy equipment that they may otherwise not be able to afford."

HorseWorld strongly recommends that all saddles are initially fitted to the horse by a qualified saddle fitter and then checked again every six months as horses will change shape with the seasons and as they age. A poorly fitting saddle can cause permanent damage to a horse's back and cause both physical and behavioural problems. A qualified saddle fitter can often alter and adjust saddles to fit or alternatively, HorseWorld offers a 14 day period to return the saddle for exchange or refund.

If you would like to donate tack, rugs or equipment to HorseWorld to help neglected and mistreated equines, please call Amy on 01275 893034 or bring your donation to the Visitor Centre or Tack Shop.
