Banish the Winter Blues!

Redwings Horse Sanctuary is offering a free evening of vet talks for horse owners full of advice on how to keep their four-legged friends healthy and safe this winter.

The evening seminar will take place at Redwings Aylsham, north of Norwich, on Tuesday 29th October from 6.30pm.

Head of Veterinary Care, Nicky Jarvis, will be sharing her top tips for looking after horses through the colder months, from common seasonal ailments and winter weight management, to supporting older equines and those with ongoing health problems.

There will also be a chance to hear the latest research into when to rug and not to rug a horse, with recent findings suggesting that over-rugging can have a real impact on a horse’s welfare.

Helen Whitelegg, Senior Campaigns Officer, said: “Winter can be hard work for horse owners and often brings its own horse health challenges. Redwings cares for horses of all ages and breeds so our vets have unrivalled knowledge and experience when it comes to ensuring equines stay happy and safe, whatever the weather.

“We hope as many horse owners as possible will be able to come along to hear our top tips and advice so they’ll be ready for whatever this winter has in store!”

Free places on the seminar can be booked in advance by calling 01508 481055 or emailing

Redwings Aylsham is located in Spa Lane, Aylsham, Norfolk, NR11 6UE.
