The horse must rank high as one of man's best friends. They were transport for us for hundreds of years. They are also rather beautiful animals with a sense of humour. Fortunes have been made and lost on horses and some have become legends, such as that earthy little fighter Seabiscuit. In times of war, a man and horse together, became the cavalry. A horse is also a companion and a rewarding hobby, or indeed a sporting performance creature, which I'm in favour of, provided the horse is not hurt. Either way they are marvelous creatures, but as with any animal you must look after and love them.

Please note, I am no longer actively involved in the administration of my local sanctuary, and/or helping people find homes for horses in other areas. I have, however, listed as many links to other facilities I could find, and hope this helps.
