For Redwings, campaigning is about helping horses far and wide, and stopping neglect and suffering before it happens.

We are proud to have achieved huge campaign success in influencing new legislation to tackle fly-grazing (the illegal practice of grazing horses on public or private land without permission). 

Similarly, strangles is a potentially fatal disease affecting tens of thousands of horses every year – needlessly. Through more focus and investment in biosecurity we can stamp out strangles. Read more about our campaigning efforts below. 

We’re delighted to share the basic data analysis of the responses to the Redwings Strangles Survey (April – June 2016).
