A Cornish charity that retrains racehorses is urgently seeking a new home for more than 20 horses as it faces eviction from its current site near Redruth.

Racehorse Relief has worked with horses that have previously competed at Cheltenham.

As the biggest event in the racing calendar gets underway, the charity now has two months to find a new location.

We need something with a minimum of 20 acres, we would consider less, with stables and facilities although we'd be happy to build the facilities or a farm with a barn, it's just finding something large enough.

– Jo Massey, Racehorse Relief

What we're hoping for is there's someone out there with a farm who's prepared to rent or sell it to us, ideally there's a house because the horses need care around the clock.
