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.

Our rescued horses

Everything we do here at Easy Horse Care comes back to these guys – the horses we've saved from abuse, neglect and abandonment. Many of these animals lived in terrible circumstances yet managed to survive against the odds.

Here you can meet the many horses we've saved and read their incredible survival stories. You can also meet our rescued ponies hereour rescued donkeys here and apply for equine adoption here.

"Maybe you can't change the world by saving one horse, but you can change the whole world for the horse that you save." – Sue Weeding, Easy Horse Care co-founder

Bella

Bella was so near death when rescued that she collapsed as we tried to lead her into our horse float. Her psychological rehabilitation has taken years, but she’s finally no longer afraid and loves cuddles and affection.

Blanca

Blanca had no food or water and was extremely malnourished when we were alerted to her plight. Her rescue was the catalyst for the discovery and rescue of two other horses and two donkeys. She is a strong-minded girl with a survivor instinct.

Dallas is an ex-show jumper who was left to starve after a leg fracture rendered him unable to be ridden. He’s a big but incredibly kind horse and we love him to bits.

Jett in April 2017 - photo Elaine Warnock

Jett

Skeletal and with one hind leg close to collapsing, it's incredible that Jett survived. Poor bone development has left Jett with severe deformities that require ongoing special care, but he’s a fiercely intelligent horse with great inner strength.

Oscar

Oscar's rescue sparked some dark months. So thin he looked like a walking skeleton, Oscar was legally placed in our care before his owners contested the case. For months, we felt under siege. But we kept Oscar safe and, eventually, we all pulled through.

The Callosa de Segura 14

The rescue of these 14 horses in 2014 from a bankrupt horse dealer was our biggest and most expensive operation to date. Each horse was neglected, starving, and undoubtedly very near death. Now safe with us, they will never again be chained to walls.
