Equine Market Watch (EMW) has a dedicated equine sanctuary for over 100 resident horses and ponies that are elderly or have health issues. The charity also offers the option of long term loans meaning that they can let some of the horses live their days in peace at other carefully vetted homes.
In addition to homing horses EMW actively campaigns against the breeding of valueless foals, investigates any incidents of abuse, cruelty or neglect, and takes the appropriate steps to ensure those with the power to act are informed, with any information needed to support an incident being freely submitted.
The charity also monitors the horses’ safety and welfare at auctions, fairs, markets and trades, liaising with Horsewatch UK and the Stolen Horse Register in addition to other welfare agencies.
