The CYD Santa Maria Association and Rescue centre has been fighting for over ten years to create and establish a legal and ethical model that will enable us to defend the rights of animals and to improve their quality of life.
A few years ago, when we started working, many people questioned the need for this project and they asked us “is it true that horses are mistreated?” we answered yes, of course if a dog or a cat can be abused, why not a horse? Nowadays, nobody denies the evidence of these facts. There is a serious problem of abandonment and abuse of horses in Spain. However, every day, to see how our horses smile at us, or seek a simple caress from our hands, as if it was the most precious treasure, we wonder how could anyone mistreat a horse? and we remember how lucky we are to be taking part in this project. Thanks to everyone for making it possible.
