World Horse Welfare, UK

Founded by Ada Cole 86 years ago World Horse Welfare is an international horse charity that improves the lives of horses in
the UK and around the world through education, campaigning, and
hands-on care, their international programmes are bringing lasting improvements to the way people care for working horses in some of the world's poorest communities. Now working in over 10 countries around world, Costa Rica is one them.
During 2014 and 2015 World Horse Welfare funded our community based programme, care-packs, our parasite research programme and in addition have sent further funds so that horses within the reserve could receive veterinary assistance.
2016 plans include farrier, tool-making and foot care training to horse-owners so that they can learn how trim and clean their own horses´hooves. In addition a continuation of the community based programme that was initiated during 2014.

Equitarian Initiative, USA

This volunteer group of Equine Vets bring much needed medical assistance to working equids around the world. As well as first aid, vaccines, castrations and dentistry the Equitarians also provide provide education and leadership to veterinary and animal science students, and in addition they mentor local, professional veterinary surgeons.
In 2013 the Equitarians visited 3 communities with the Indigenous reserve in conjuction with World Horse Welfare and we look forward to receiving them again in March 2014.

Thanks to SPANA we have been able to establish a children`s education programme. Their very much needed funds have contributed to the creation of materials, the teaching of staff and on-going support to over 15 different schools in Costa Rican indigenous communities.
