Since 1991, Redwings has quarantined and tested over 4,000 horses for strangles on their arrival at the sanctuary

Around 8% of arrivals test positive for the disease - including hidden strangles carriers. No horse is released from quarantine until we know they are free of infection.

In 2017 Redwings won the Animal Health Trust's prestigious Health and Welfare award for its work to help protect horses from strangles.

During more than 25 years of rescuing horses with strangles, Redwings has experienced just one strangles outbreak outside a quarantine area.
