Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre

Our mission is to rescue and rehabilitate abused, neglected and abandoned horses, ponies and donkeys, while campaigning for the better treatment of animals across Spain. We are a no-kill foundation and provide each rescued animal with a safe and loving sanctuary – either here at our centre or via rehoming – for the rest of their lives.

Learn how it all began

We're Sue and Rod Weeding, British expats who moved to Spain from England in 2001, aiming to slip into an easy sunshine-and-relaxation retirement.

But all that changed in 2008 with Luceiro, a two-year-old stallion we found locked in a filthy and dark stable, his left eye badly injured and rotting, hurling himself repeatedly against the bars of his stall as flies drove him crazy.

Unable to walk away from such a distressing case of animal cruelty, we brought Luceiro home to our own finca – and unwittingly created a much-needed horse rescue centre.

Watch our documentary

In 2014, VivaTV filmed a moving half-hour documentary telling the story of our rescue centre. This professionally filmed and narrated documentary covers the incredible story of how we founded the Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre in 2008.

It also features interviews with Sue Weeding, footage from our rescues and details of how we’re campaigning for improved animal welfare in Spain.
