Everything we do here at Easy Horse Care comes back to these guys – the horses we've saved from abuse, neglect and abandonment. Many of these animals lived in terrible circumstances yet managed to survive against the odds.
Here you can meet the many horses we've saved and read their incredible survival stories. You can also meet our rescued ponies here, our rescued donkeys here and apply for equine adoption here.
"Maybe you can't change the world by saving one horse, but you can change the whole world for the horse that you save." – Sue Weeding, Easy Horse Care co-founder

The rescue of these 14 horses in 2014 from a bankrupt horse dealer was our biggest and most expensive operation to date. Each horse was neglected, starving, and undoubtedly very near death. Now safe with us, they will never again be chained to walls.
