An English couple who run Spain’s only registered horse rescue foundation will feature in Channel 5’s popular Bargain-loving Brits In The Sun television series next week.
Sue and Rod Weeding, who moved to the Costa Blanca to retire but launched Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre in 2008 after witnessing horse cruelty, are thrilled to be included in the first episode of season three, launching next Thursday.
Film crews visited the Rojales rescue centre multiple times last year, capturing the highs and lows of the Weedings’ life caring for more than 100 rescued horses, ponies and donkeys.
“We are very excited to be on English TV. We’re hoping that people will see the program, enjoy it and maybe understand a little bit of what we’re trying to do here,” Sue said.
“It’s definitely not easy, but we will continue to move forward to create animal welfare in Spain. This is our long-term goal, to continue working with Spanish police to rescue abused, neglected and abandoned equines – and at some point get some sort of recognition from the government or councils.”
