Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre

Our mission is to rescue and rehabilitate abused, neglected and abandoned horses, ponies and donkeys, while campaigning for the better treatment of animals across Spain. We are a no-kill foundation and provide each rescued animal with a safe and loving sanctuary – either here at our centre or via rehoming – for the rest of their lives.

Help us build strong and permanent internal fences

Our internal fencing is currently made almost entirely of electric fence tape held up by plastic posts. While this type of fencing is safe for our horses, the electric tape deteriorates rapidly in the hot Spanish sun, requiring constant replacement.
