The organisation was founded in 1927 by Ada Cole, who was spurred into action after witnessing a procession of British work horses being unloaded and whipped for four miles to slaughter in Belgium. From the beginning, she defined the organisation’s approach as “combining practicality with passion”. The mission of WHW is to work with horses, horse owners, communities, organisations and governments to improve welfare standards and stamp out suffering in the UK and worldwide.

From front-line care, to research, education, advocacy and campaigns, World Horse Welfare works across the full spectrum of the horse world improve the horse-human partnership. Today WHW works in sixteen countries across (including China, Haiti, Cuba, Mexico, South Africa, Nepal to mention a few) on four continents to positively impact the welfare of working equids.

The relevance and responsibility of horse welfare extends to the entire equine community, including tourism, leisure, sport and breeding.
