THE Irish Horse Welfare Trust is one equine charity everyone in the racing and equestrian world should support and with funding at a real low in these Covid times, please consider making a donation now or putting the IHWT on your Christmas donation list for December.

Your donations/support of IHWT will help make a real difference to the 60 plus horses and ponies in their care at their premises in Woodenbridge, Arklow.

To date the IHWT has helped over 1,500 horses and ponies and carries out valuable work for the equine industry. Please visit their website to follow their story and donate to IHWT including donating your spare digital change – nothing could be easier and more satisfying knowing you are helping equines in their good care.

Sharon Power of the IHWT told Pony Tales they are running very low on funds heading into December and with normal fundraising cancelled due to Covid-19, the IHWT hardworking team is asking people for their kind support.
