Charity launches suffering campaign with national survey
WORLD Horse Welfare has launched its Stamp Out Suffering campaign with the first ever national SOS Survey. 
The charity is asking for people to get involved in identifying what they feel are the main causes of horse welfare abuse and ignorance in Britain today. 
It is concerned that the reliance on horse welfare charities to take in cases does not tackle the root causes of mistreatment and that suffering is still widespread.

Society calls for horseboxes to be excluded
THE British Horse Society has launched a campaign petitioning for drivers of large horseboxes to be excluded from laws over compulsory and prohibitive rest periods.  
The Vehicle Operator Services Agency (VOSA) has effectively banned anyone with a full time job from driving their HGV (over 7.5 tonne) lorry at weekends by strictly interpreting a European law. 
BHS Chief Executive Graham Cory, speaking on behalf of the entire British Equestrian Federation, has now written to Geoff Hoon, Secretary of State for Transport, to express alarm at the potential implementations of EC regulation 561/2006.
