October is Rehome A Horse Month

World Horse Welfare champions the benefits of rehoming while asking the public ‘Why buy when you can rehome?’

This October World Horse Welfare will be celebrating Rehome A Horse Month to highlight the benefits of rehoming and encouraging the public to consider rehoming a horse instead of buying or breeding.

A number of inspiring stories will be shared throughout the month, like that of 23-year-old Tinto who won the charity’s Rehomed Horse of the Year competition in 2018.

World Horse Welfare is asking the horse community to take two simple actions to show their support for horse welfare and help World Horse Welfare to make 2019 a record-breaking rehoming year:

  1. Spread the rehoming message by visiting worldhorsewelfare.org/rehoming and sharing the profile of at least one horse or pony across your social media network.
  2. Display one of our Rehoming Rocks window stickers in your car, lorry, caravan, at home, in your office, at your yard, local veterinary surgery or riding school.  Help us encourage more people to consider rehoming a horse who has had a difficult start in life. You can get your sticker for FREE at any World Horse Welfare Rescue and Rehoming Centre. Anyone who can carry a small stock of the stickers at till points or reception desks can email RHOTY@worldhorsewelfare.org putting window stickers in the subject line.

There are currently around 80 horses available for rehoming from World Horse Welfare.

Five reasons to rehome through World Horse Welfare:

  1. Rehoming gives a horse who has had a poor start in life, the loving home they deserve.
  2. Rehoming creates space at World Horse Welfare Centres for a horse in need. The charity couldn’t continue its important work without amazing rehomers!
  3. World Horse Welfare horses are fully MOT’d and come with health records, a microchip and a passport. The rehoming team will also be completely honest about the unique character of each horse so there are no surprises.
  4. A World Horse Welfare horse comes with a lifetime of advice and support, over the phone and in person.
  5. The friendly, knowledgeable team works carefully to find the best match for horse and rehomer, but if circumstances change or things don’t work out for any reason the horse can be returned to World Horse Welfare giving them a lifetime of security.
