Mary King teams up with Blue Cross
Top event rider Mary King is helping national pet charity Blue Cross to tackle horse welfare with a new education resource.
The Blue Cross education programme is focused on responsible pet ownership and aims to inspire young people to learn more about how to care for pets appropriately. Each year the education team reaches around 100,000 people throughout the UK using a network of Education officers and volunteer speakers.
“We are thrilled to have teamed up with Mary King to help encourage people to understand and engage with the problem to help prevent it from escalating,” said Gemma Taylor, Education Officer at Blue Cross. With Mary’s support, Blue Cross highlights the growing welfare implications of the horse crisis. Volunteer education speakers, supported by videos featuring Mary King, will spread the word about the five welfare needs of horses’ wellbeing and the need to breed responsibly.
