More than 30 primary school children learnt about horse welfare at a special event in Norfolk earlier this month.
The event was organised by the World Horse Welfare charity and The British Horseracing Education and Standards Trust.
The event was organised for children, aged seven to nine, from the Parker's Primary School in Saham Toney, Thetford.
The aim was to educate children and increase their understanding of the important issue of horse welfare.
The children learnt about basic pony care and how to identify the signs of good and poor health. They also learnt how to recognise horse markings and colours and even had the chance to groom the ponies.
The event was held at the World Horse Welfare Hall Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Snetterton, Norfolk. The children's teacher said it was a huge success.
