THE Irish Horse Welfare Trust (IHWT), cares for around 60 horses and ponies at its dedicated centre in Woodenbridge, Co Wicklow.
Established in 1999 to help the plight of horses in Ireland they are dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of abused and neglected horses and ponies.
GAIN Equine Nutrition is the official feed partner to the IHWT and is committed to supporting the charity in their fantastic efforts to rescue and rehabilitate neglected horses and ponies.
GAIN Equine Nutrition have launched their ‘Give them the gift of GAIN this Christmas’ campaign. The campaign will run throughout the build up to Christmas, right up until Friday December 22nd. To support the campaign all you need to do is upload a selfie of you and your horse or pony with a short caption and tag the GAINequinenutrition Facebook page in your photo.
For each selfie uploaded GAIN Equine Nutrition will donate a scoop of horse feed to The Irish Horse Welfare Trust.
New to the campaign this year for 2017 we have added the chance for one lucky winner to receive a Canvas print of their selfie. All selfies uploaded between December 1st- 22nd will be entered into the draw.
At the launch of the 2017 Christmas campaign Joanne Hurley Irish Country Manager, GAIN Equine Nutrition commented “GAIN Equine Nutrition are delighted to support the IHWT again this Christmas for the 5th consecutive year. Horse welfare is so important all year round but especially during these cold Winter months. The IHWT work tirelessly to care for and rehome horses and ponies in need and we are delighted to be able to show our support for their work with our Christmas campaign”.
Sharon Power IHWT added “We are so grateful to Gain Equine Nutrition for their continued support in sponsoring feed for all our IHWT horses and ponies at the farm". Rescued equines need careful feeding for many months and throughout the entire winter season. This sponsorship is essential to us”
Please support this very worthy and exciting campaign to help horses in need this Christmas. Further information on the campaign can be found on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/GAINequinenutrition
The IHWT work also includes promoting ex-racehorses for equestrianism; as well as promoting equine welfare awareness and running educational programmes. One of the most recent and biggest successes has been the Dunsink Horse Project in Dublin, developed and managed by IHWT and Fingal County Council working closely with the local community.
