Welfare’s Horse to Retire From King’s Troop

Recently the World Horse Welfare’s rehomed horse, Penny was checked by the charity’s London Field Officer, Nick White, for the last time, before she retires from her almost 12-year service in the Kings Troop.

Penny was the youngest of the four Irish Draught mares saved from appalling conditions by World Horse Welfare back in March 2001. After 6 months of rehabilitation, much patience and understanding, the centre staff slowly built up a relationship with her. She was nursed back to health by the charity’s original farm manager, Tony Fleming and later made headlines by successfully being rehomed with the King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery through Tony’s connections, having previously served in the King’s Troop for 25 years himself. Penny is due to retire in September.
