Shires Equestrian supports Veteran Horse Welfare

Shires Equestrian is thrilled to announce its support of Veteran Horse Welfare, a charity based in Wales which is dedicated to the needs of veteran horses.

The charity’s head office in Pembrokeshire is home to around 20 horses and ponies who are in retirement or require rehabilitation, but the charity is responsible for contributing to the welfare of many horses across the United Kingdom and, indeed, the world as Julianne Aston, the charity’s founder explains, ‘Veteran Horse Welfare is a charity totally dedicated to the care and welfare of older horses. I am delighted to welcome Shires as sponsors of both the horses and staff’s clothing and equipment. Already their rugs and grooming equipment is proving excellent and I am sure the horses will put their new rugs to the test this winter. I would like to thank Shires for their support and for choosing Veteran Horse Welfare as one of their nominated charities.’

‘We are pleased to be supporting such a worthwhile charity,’ explains Rhea Freeman, Shires’ Marketing Manager, ‘Veteran Horse Welfare helps thousands of horses and their owners each and every year, whether this is through providing advice over the phone about feeding, finding a new home for an ageing horse or rehabilitating a horse who needs professional help. We are excited to be working with the charity and look forward to the future working together.’
