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.

    Fourteen horses we saved from a bankrupt horse dealer, who was later convicted of animal abuse. They now roam fat, happy and free in our fields and will never again be chained to walls.

    Bronson was beaten over the head with a hammer, permanently affecting his balance and eyesight. Yet he's the kindest, happiest horse.

    Faith is famous in Spain as the first pony to be given an artificial leg after her front foreleg was amputated in a life-saving operation.

    We urgently need your support to build a secure boundary wall. Our old fence is falling to bits and our rescued horses are unsafe. Even a small €5 donation helps.

    Luceiro was locked in a dark stable for months, and his injured eye later had to be surgically removed. Yet he remains a proud and incredibly beautiful horse.
