so if you had an old snaffle bit, plastic bridle, or a fleece girth sleeve, thats the kind of stuff, that would make a differance to the horses over there, giving them just a little bit of comfort in their day to day lives. to all the critics i completly realise this wont change the world, but like the starfish that gets thrown back into the water it will bring releif to that one creature.
Do you have links to these animal charities that you are working with? Would they have more literature on this matter?

I am truely curious to know how supplying old snaffles,bridles or girth sleeves is really going to make a difference? Or how giving extra feed would help...considering it would be something they are not used to, and could mess with their digestive system.

Sorry for pointing it out, but I did see it as being valid. It DOES make you look like a scammer.

Note: Why isn't your organized group trying to help rescues in the US, instead of abroad? Surely we (general we) could use the help as well.

I do not understand why we so easily give helping hands to other nations first, before extending a helping hand to our own people.
