Norfolk Woman Receives 10-Year Ban

A Norwich woman was recently sentenced to a ten-year ban from keeping horses after the charity World Horse Welfare found an Arab mare and Thoroughbred gelding belonging to her in very poor condition.

Mrs Sally Rix of Furze Lane, Felthorpe, Norwich, pleaded guilty to five charges under the Animal Welfare Act of causing unnecessary suffering to Henry, the 5-year-old bay Thoroughbred gelding, and the 25-year-old grey Arab mare called Angel, earlier this year.
