Donate A Christmas Dinner to Horses in Need this Christmas

Donate A Christmas Dinner to Horses in Need this Christmas

The Irish Horse Welfare Trust (IHWT) cares for around 60 horses and ponies at its dedicated centre in Woodenbridge, Co Wicklow. Established in 1999 to help the plight of horses in Ireland they are dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of abused and neglected horses and ponies.

GAIN Equine Nutrition is the official feed partner to the IHWT and is committed to supporting the charity in their fantastic efforts to rescue and rehabilitate neglected horses and ponies.

We are launching our #DonateAChristmasDinner campaign across our social media channels today (Monday 3rd December). All you need to do is upload a picture of your horse dressed up for the festive season onto Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and tag us. For every entry, we will donate a Christmas Dinner to the IHWT. The campaign is running from 3rd – 21st December so there is plenty of time to get into the festive spirit. This is a very worthy campaign to help horses in need this Christmas and every entry counts!

The work of the IHWT also includes promoting ex-racehorses for equestrianism; as well as promoting equine welfare awareness and running educational programmes. One of the most recent and biggest successes has been the Dunsink Horse Project in Dublin. It was developed and managed by IHWT, Fingal County Council and in conjunction with the local community.

We look forward to seeing all your horses dressed up for Christmas and for such a worthy cause!
