The welfare of the horse must be paramount in all things; equestrian sport, recreation and industry must consider the welfare at the core of the activity.

Providing information and advice, as well as fostering and rehoming of donkeys and mules.  This charitable trust does excellent work for our hairier equine cousins. 
Horse Welfare New Zealand, formerly ILPH, is now part of NZ SPCA.  Horse Welfare steps in, when horses, ponies, donkeys and mules need help.  They need donations, and particularly appreciate regular automatic payments.  Donations of good new or used tack, rugs etc are always appreciated.  They also sell Christmas cards, and can provide gift vouchers, for that donation present with a difference.
