Dr Mark Kennedy, equine welfare specialist at the RSPCA said: "It's heartbreaking that we had to rescue more than 1,000 horses nationally last year.

"We need help from fellow horse lovers. Please, please, please consider adopting your next horse from a charity instead of buying." Lilly, Hope, Bella and Chile are among the many horses looking for homes at the RSPCA Southridge Animal Centre.
