  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.

    Will Protechmasta Overheat my Horse?

     

    Will Protechmasta overheat my horse?

    All seasons have their challenges within the equine world, right? During the summer months, we are quite often faced with the dilemma of how to manage our horses in the heat. An excessive elevation in core body temperature in the equine can severely hinder performance capacity; it can also lead to heat stress if over rugged. Throw into the equation rug choices, for example, rugs that are designed to insulate when cold or to wick away moisture when hot and sweaty, then we have therapy rugs with the aim of improving circulation, reduce inflammation that will in turn enhance performance, speed up recovery from exercise and promote relaxation.
