National Equine Welfare Council visit BTRC

In March 2022 we welcomed Hannah Bryer, Director at the National Equine Welfare Council (NEWC) as part of our re-accreditation visit. BTRC are a long-standing accredited member of NEWC, an organisation that works to protect horses, ponies, donkeys and mules, by providing support, guidance and a communication forum to equine organisations, businesses and charities to help raise equine welfare standards nationwide.

NEWC membership provides an assurance to both the public and the industry that equine welfare is the priority. Through working collaboratively with the industry and its members, NEWC is committed to improving efficiency through sharing information and resources.
Streamlining education, regulation and enforcement initiatives are NEWC’s key objectives to ensure horse welfare standards steadily improve. The NEWC network is very wide with over 70 members throughout the UK which include equine welfare charities large and small as well as a multitude of organisations from the equestrian and veterinary sectors of the equine industry.

We are very proud to be part of this organisation doing incredibly important work for welfare standards in the UK. If you would like to know more about NEWC please take a look at their website
