Help A Horse Week
26/04/2021 - 30/04/2021
What is HAPPA’s Help A Horse Week? Well, each year we celebrate the international event #HelpAHorseDay
, but this year we wanted to extend it to a full week of celebrations!
Help a Horse Day is extremely important to us, without us raising awareness through events such as these we wouldn’t be able to continue. This year our focus is to teach people about HAPPA and hopefully raise some much needed funds to provide care for the horses and ponies at our Centre, and to continue our investigations into cruelty and neglect.
The aim this year is to raise money for an important piece of equipment, a Tow and Collect ATV attachment that will assist in controlling worm burdens, a health condition that the majority of equines rescued by HAPPA suffer from. Worm infestations in neglected equines are identified when we conduct our veterinary assessments. Worm burdens in horses are a real issue, equines that suffer from this ailment can suffer inflammation in the mouth and throat, as well as ulceration of the stomach. Heavy burdens of this parasite can cause colic or even perforation of the stomach. Alongside our regular worming programmes this equipment will mean our horses and ponies can continue to enjoy healthy and safe grazing.
Throughout the week we will be taking you on a journey going LIVE on our Facebook page every day throughout the week. Live videos will consist of Q&As with the Equine Inspectors, Equine Rehabilitation and Rehoming Manager and Head of Equine Operations. There will be a number of different ways to donate during the week, which we’ll be sharing with you throughout the month.
will start on Monday 26th April and will end on Friday 30th April.
