Here are some of the ways you can help:
PETITION – print off a copy (or 10), collect signatures and return to us (PO Box is shown on the form).
CAMPAIGNS – we encourage everyone to send letters and emails to key contacts such as DEFRA, Trading Standards and the RSPCA to continue to keep horse welfare on their agenda and to push for change.

SPREAD THE WORD – “like” our Facebook page and share it as widely as you can. Use your Facebook, Twitter and other contacts to share our story and gain support. You don’t need to ask, just forward the story to whoever you think can help us. Media, celebrities, horse world contacts, whatever you can come up with!
MERCHANDISE – for information on where you can buy t-shirts and other Hope for Horse merchandise.
PROTESTS – we would love you to attend our protests which are announced here and on our Facebook page. Our protests are always lawful and safe – they are co-ordinated with the local police with stewards in place.
lf you are located in Leicestershire, and would like to “help” please support Leicestershire Active Equine Group, called LEAG , they organise local awareness event and have a ground team , and join in on their discussion group (LEAG is totally separate from HFH) FINANCE – We are not a registered charity and we do not collect money for the campaign. If you would like to donate to help horses there are many very deserving horse sanctuaries and rescue/rehoming centres which are desperately in need of financial support – every £1 is much appreciated! Please see our Links page for a few suggestions.
REHOMING A HORSE or PONY – we frequently receive messages from people who would like to rescue one of the horses featured in our stories. It is very unlikely that such horses can simply be taken and rehomed – for example the horses at Fosse Park already have an owner. If you can offer a good home to a neglected horse then please contact the many horse sanctuaries, most of which have many horses suitable for rehoming. This frees up a space for them to admit another desperately needy animal.
