Dime is a young Shire horse rescued by equine welfare charity, HorseWorld in 2017. She had been left abandoned and neglected along with 18 other Shire horses. Two years after her rescue, she is training to work in harness.
Heavy horse enthusiast Martin Clunes, of ITV’s Doc Martin, is asking supporters to become part of Dime’s journey by helping HorseWorld to equip her with a harness, cart and harrow.
As an old English breed of heavy horse, 5-year-old Dime can be trained to work like her ancestors did, an exciting next step for this once unloved and overlooked mare. This will turn her life story from one of abandonment and neglect to a promising future as a working Shire horse, something that these days is a rare and special sight.
Dime’s Appeal will enable HorseWorld to purchase the equipment needed to bring Dime into work and to maintain her upkeep. The charity currently provides for over 100 rescued horses on its farm in Whitchurch, Bristol. Any additional funds raised as a result of Dime’s Appeal will go into rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming other equines in need.
