Six thoroughbreds have arrived at the charity’s Hall Farm in the initiative funded by Retraining of Racehorses (RoR), with the aim of finding them new homes.

World Horse Welfare says the initiative is helping to expand its rehoming scheme, while demonstrating its support for the responsible use of horses in sport.

The charity says that if the pilot is successful it is possible that the scheme could extend to its four Rescue and Rehoming Centres across the UK.
