Just a Minute

Help us Break the Chain

Join HorseWorld's campaign to end the long-term abusive tethering of equines within the UK by contacting your MP with our pre-drafted letter.

On average, 3,500 horses are tethered at any one time across the UK.

Many of these are tethered in heartbreaking conditions similar to those in which we found Catena and her foal, Salisbury:

What's involved?

By clicking on the link below you can send a pre-drafted email to your local MP. 

All you need to do is add your name, home address and email address to the form and the email will be sent directly to your MP.

Your details will be stored by HorseWorld and shared with your local MP upon sending this email, so that they will know you live in their constituency.


Why get involved?

Catena’s story had a happy ending because we were able to intervene. However her situation had to worsen to the point where she had given birth and was showing obvious signs of distress at not being able to protect and tend to her foal before we could legally step in.

While she was pregnant and chained, we could do nothing.

Some owners are able to leave their animals tied up on the sides of roads, on wasteland or even busy roundabouts in miserable conditions without any fear of repercussion simply because the laws relating to tethering are too vague and open to interpretation.

With your support, we can change this together.
