We have launched a nationwide survey to find out more about people’s experiences of taking on their first ever horse or pony.
Taking on the care of a horse for the first time is a memorable milestone and the charity is keen to discover why, when and how individuals made the exciting move from riding lessons or helping out with friends’ horses, to shouldering the responsibility for one of their own.
Past and present horse owners now have until 18th November to fill in the questionnaire, entitled the ‘My First Horse’ survey, which we hope will act as a nostalgic trip down memory lane for many.

We are very grateful to equestrian brands Equilibrium and Spillers, who have both donated items for a prize draw that all those who complete the survey can choose to enter, with a grand prize bundle including an Equilibrium Massage Mitt Hotspot and a Spillers branded saddlecloth, voucher and other goodies.
The launch of the new survey coincides with World Mental Health Day, taking place this Sunday 10th October, reflecting the significant contribution horses can make to a person’s physical and mental health.
Andie McPherson, Redwings’ Campaigns Manager, said: “We have a lot to learn about the thought processes and preparations involved when someone takes on their first horse.
“We know that horses can have a hugely positive impact in people’s lives but there’s a concern that not getting the right horse for you, or not having support as a new owner, could increase risks to the wellbeing of both horse and human.
“We’re keen to find out more so we can help support people at this exciting, but sometimes daunting, stage of their equestrian journey.”
