During a recent visit to Penny Farm the new ILPH (International League for the Protection of Horses) Recovery and Rehabilitation Centre, near Blackpool, members of the Red Rose Carriage Club left more behind than the Centre Manager bargained for.
Expecting just a visit to show them around the new Centre Tony Fleming, Centre Manager said, · We are overwhelmed by the generosity of the Red Rose Carriage Club who have donated a variety of items including a horse drawn exercise cart.
"Our thanks go out to Red Rose members for all the equipment they have kindly given us, especially the exercise cart which will be invaluable."
Two members of the ILPH staff have horse driving experience and hope to use the exercise cart to break to harness horses and ponies suitable for driving. This will increase their chances of being found good loan homes when they are ready to leave Penny Farm.
All the Centre needs now is a set of cob sized driving harness ..
