  2. Field Officer Nick White

    Field Officer Nick White

    Harry Hall spoke to World Horse Welfare Nick White about his role as a Field Officer for the charity:

    I have been a field officer for eleven years, prior to that I did over thirty years in the Metropolitan police as a mounted officer, competitor, public order and equitation instructor, I also formed and ran the Equine crime unit. My job as a World Horse Welfare Field Officer involves investigating welfare concerns reported mainly through our welfare line and to check on World Horse Welfare horses rehomed through the Rehoming Scheme. I cover six counties including London and in addition to my daily duties I advise others, including the police, on matters such as straying horses on the road and the Control of Horses Act 2015. On a daily basis I investigate allegations of equine suffering and try to resolve instances of suffering by offering realistic solutions and advice to horse owners. In deliberate or repeated cases of neglect or cruelty I will work with other organisations to undertake a prosecution, this is usually as a last resort.

  8. January Blues For Equestrians

    January Blues For Equestrians

     

    Winter is always a tough time for us equestrians – no matter how dedicated we consider ourselves to be, it’s so much harder to wake up on dark mornings to go and see our beloved pets. Not only that, but the loss of sunlight by 4 means after work we just want to crawl into bed and we constantly question our sanity as we wait for hours in the cold, dreary rain on a weekend day for our class to finish at the local competition.
