Horses 4 Health are celebrating how much horses have supported our well-being and mental health during the pandemic. We hope this Relay across the UK will increase awareness of the powerful and positive impact horses can have on the lives of people, whilst raising much needed funds for a range of UK charities.

This Relay is taking place throughout the UK, beginning in May (restrictions allowing) and brings together a community, raising funds for charities and promoting awareness for three key principles:

Mental Health and Wellbeing: The huge positive impact from horses

Safety: Horse and other vulnerable road users’ safety and awareness

Welfare: Equine rescue and welfare

The Relay will be travelling around the UK during the summer from 2nd May to 2nd October 2021. Check out our latest activity stats.
