Chatting with Angela the President of Project Hope Horse Welfare
23 November 2020
Project Hope Horse began 50 years ago back in 1973 when Val Collingwood wrote into RIDER magazine about the number of neglected horses in Australia and a way to help them. Her idea was to co-ordinate the rescue and rehabilitation of horses subjected to maltreatment or abuse. Val’s letter resonated with RIDER’s readers and the scheme was organised with Val leading the charge. The scheme took off and in 1993 became a registered charity with the name Project Hope Horse Welfare Victoria. Horse welfare is on the forefront of a lot of Victorians minds. And to me personally, these gentle, kind animals have a special place in my heart. That’s why this year I have asked the government to allocate some money in this year’s state budget to support the vital work of Project Hope. Listen in to hear what this money would mean for Project Hope Horse Welfare and for improving horse welfare throughout Victoria.
