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

Beauty 12th March 2018 10


Beauty was being beaten by a group of thugs when rescued by Spanish police. Skeletal and scarred, this poor old girl had suffered a lifetime of abuse. Now enjoying a quiet retirement, our centre’s official grandma is surrounded by love and care.

Beni in 2015


Beni had serious psychological problems when first rescued and bore scarring down his front legs. Over the years we’ve helped him heal psychologically and physically and he now enjoys life at our centre.

1Bronson by Eck


Bronson had been beaten so badly with a hammer that his skull was fractured. His balance and eyesight have been permanently affected, yet he is one of the kindest, happiest horses you could meet.

Bronte on April 24 2017 - photo Elaine Warnock


Bronte was once a competition horse in the UK and came to live in our centre not because she was neglected or abused, but because she had owners who cared very much for her.

Captain & Hope

Captain and Hope were found locked in an isolated barn without food or water. They were both skeletal and malnourished, and Captain also suffered from a severely infected leg due to a knee injury.

Chulo the rescued horse.


Chulo suffers from a tilted pelvis and "wind sucks", meaning he was likely locked in a stable for long periods for much of his life.

Conker in May 2016 photo Koren Helbig


Tied up beside a bustling motorway and abandoned, Conker was very head shy when he arrived at our centre, evidence he’d been bashed in the past.

Dakota on April 24 2017 - photo Elaine Warnock


Beautiful Dakota came to us from a lovely from a Spanish/Swedish family that had had her for many years and were very attached to here. Their daughter had outgrown her and they could no longer keep her. They were concerned for her future and didn't want to…

Dallas on April 24 2017 - photo Elaine Warnock


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.

Diplomat on April 24 2017 40 photo Elaine Warnock


Diplomat’s rescue was tense and dangerous, involving multiple police officers amid the threat of violence. Skeletal and wild, this abused stallion had to learn to trust again. Now gelded, he has found happiness and companionship with his girlfriend, Goldie.

Ellie on April 24 2017 - photo Elaine Warnock


Rescued: summer 2014. Ellie was found abandoned by English owners in San Javier. She was malnourished.

Ginger, Spirit, Zak and Moses

Our four Arabians were part of a herd owned by a British woman who suddenly stopped feeding her animals. Ginger later had a foal – the first to be born at our centre.

Harry Trotter

The second foal to be born at our rescue centre is a handsome young fellow who has a lightning-bolt mark and a godfather who is as kind and fierce as Sirius Black.

Jacob at Jacobs Ridge


SUCCESSFULLY ADOPTED! Found tied to a tree with no food or water, alongside his mother and two other skeletal miniature ponies, feisty young Jacob was successfully rehomed and now lives happily with a small herd of horses and other rescued animals.

Jett in April 2017 - photo Elaine Warnock


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.

Katy Rose on April 10 2017 photo Elaine Warnock


Katy-Rose was the third foal to be born at our rescue centre, to a mare named Sophia who was pregnant and starving when rescued. Mother and daughter still live happily together today.

Leo & Louie

Cruelly abandoned by the owners of a failed Murcia riding school, Louie and Leo were left to starve with little food or water. Skeletal when rescued, these two horses have since flourished and are now happy and well-adjusted leaders among our herd.

Linda May

Linda May was the first foal ever born at our rescue centre, to an Arab mare named Ginger who was pregnant when rescued. Mum and youngster now live in the same field – their bond is unbreakable.
October 27, 2008


Luceiro is the horse that started it all; the reason our centre exists. He'd been locked in a dark stable for months, his left eye so badly injured that it was rotting. We later had to surgically remove his eye, but he remains a proud and beautiful horse.

Luna on April 24 2017 photo Elaine Warnock

Luna (The Second)

Luna is unlike any horse we've ever encountered. She has severe psychological issues, likely as a result of past abuse, and also suffers a genetic tendon condition. But with her best friend Mimosa, this young misfit mare has found peace and companionship.

Maggie May on 10th April 2017 - photo Elaine Warnock


Maggie-May was rescued this year together with Nero the horse. We rescued a mare and a stallion, Macarena, who has now been renamed Maggie-May, and Nero but it was a tale of two halves as we were just too late to save a third horse. We first heard about the…

Mimosa on April 24 2017 - photo Elaine Warnock


Locked in a cage-like enclosure with little food or water, we fought for two months to secure Mimosa's release. While she bears some psychological scars as a result of her ordeal, Mimosa is slowly learning to trust again with help from her best friend Luna.

Oscar on 10th April 2017 - photo Elaine Warnock


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.

Paloma and Pablo in Nov 2015 photo by Eckhard Strittmatter


Paloma was once an expensive riding horse. But both Paloma and his young English rider lost their confidence after a riding accident, which left the then 10-year-old gelding with only 10 per cent vision in his right eye.

Rosie 10th april 2017 photo Elaine Warnock


One of 14 starving horses rescued from a bankrupt horse dealer, Rosie survived terrible conditions to reach our rescue centre. She is a very quiet and gentle old lady.

Sirius April 2017 photo Elaine Warnock


Sirius was wasting away on a piece of land beside our rescue centre – an old, unrideable horse with a respiratory illness, apparently of no value. While he does require special extra care, he would make a fabulous outdoor companion horse for a loving family.

Tamarisk 2 Feb 2018 4

Tamarisk & Fleur

These two horses were left to starve at a Murcia finca. Tamarisk was absolutely skeletal and near death – she is lucky to be alive. Fleur was thankfully in slightly better condition, but still dehydrated and very hungry. We are so happy they are now safe.

EJ and Alice in December 2015

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.

Vinny on April 24 2017 - photo Elaine Warnock


Surrendered to our rescue centre, old Vinny suffered arthritis and a severe skin condition that caused his entire coat to fall out each summer. Now retired and receiving a balanced diet, Vinny’s skin has completely healed – and he has a girlfriend!
