Anger over ‘pet’ advertisements

Have your say

A LEADING equestrian charity is warning against people buying horses as Christmas presents.

Horses and ponies have been abandoned in fields and roadsides – including in parts of Doncaster and the Dearne – because their owners or breeders cannot or will not care for them.

The British Horse Society has spoken out after seeing companies encouraging people to spend £500 on a horse or pony as a Christmas gift.
