North Devon charity will help rehome horses and ponies in need.
A NEW rescue centre for horses and ponies is hosting a fundraising event on November 16 in Barnstaple.
Ann Sim, of North Devon Equine Rescue, said the centre already has 12 horses and ponies resident due to neglect, abuse and change of circumstances.
She said: “We have recently set up our organisation in a beautiful location just on side skirts of Barnstaple.
“We will be running our equine rescue solely on donations and sponsors and our aim is to offer warmth, food and a kind hand to help our equine friends find their forever, loving, long term homes.
