What We Do

Since 1976 we have:

investigated horse neglect and abuse

saved horses and found them a caring home

offered education to all owners and the community

fundraised to give horses their best life

raised awareness about the plight of horses

advocated to legal channels to protect horses

existed because of volunteers - thank you.

Watch the video to find out more and to meet some of our beautiful horses.

In Rehabilitation

When horses come into care with Project Hope they start off in short term homes where they are assessed before we find a new home in long term care.

Wednesday 1st June 2022 Time: 7.30 pm: “Managing the overweight horse”
Many of us struggle with horse weight management.
This presentation will give you current scientific information and practical tips to keep our horses healthy when on a weight management plan.

Saturday, 18 June at 2pm - Smythesdale Pony Club: “Safety Awareness training around horses"
Join Dr Lesley Hawson on this unique interactive take on being safe around horses.
We will be applying the latest thinking in psychology, safety science and even first responder training to give you the tools to be safer around and for your horse.
This training is far more than "bites one end, kicks the other and is dangerous in the middle". It can be applied in all horse related situations.
