Do Not Feed The Horses

When out walking please do not feed the horses

A survey from BHS found that nearly a third of horses became unwell as a result, with half of these horses needing veterinary treatment. Almost a third of those that required treatment did not make a full recovery and shockingly 16 per cent died or were euthanised. The BHS is offering the following simple advice to those enjoying the countryside:

  • Do not feed horses as any type of food can cause them to become extremely unwell or even kill them.
  • Leave gates and property as you find them, shut.
  • Keep your dog on a lead as they may startle horses, which can cause injury.
  • If you see a horse in distress, alert the nearest farm/yard or check for a sign with owner’s detail on.
