It is with great sadness that we bring you the news of the passing of…
We were so happy and proud to see former Horse Trust resident, Dazzle, competing at Royal Windsor Horse Show earlier this month!
Dazzle came to us back in 2008 after he was rescued from the horrors of Spindles Farm alongside some of our current residents, Duke, Lola, Nora, and Star. The Spindles Farm case in Amersham, Buckinghamshire was deemed the worst case of equine welfare abuse in UK history with a total of 111 equines being removed by the RSPCA. Tragically 32 were found deceased on site.
Dazzle, like many of the survivors had a long journey to recovery but thanks to the specialist care provided by the team and the generosity of our supporters, we were delighted with his recovery. Dazzle’s progress was so wonderful that we were able to place him in our rehoming scheme where he would be able to find a new, loving home and in his case it seems, have a great showing career!
Dazzle found his forever home with owner, Claire in 2018. Since then the team have regularly checked in on them both and have been thrilled with how he has been getting on. Further confirmation of this came earlier this month when we were reunited with them at Royal Windsor Horse Show, where Dazzle and Claire had entered the Coloured Ridden class. It was lovely to be able to catch up with them both, and although Dazzle didn’t place, it was brilliant to see him looking so handsome and well.
