South West Equine Protection

South West Equine Protection was formed as a charity 20 years ago in response to the demand for a locally based society to follow up concerns about Equine Welfare. Whether the ponies are from the moor, are privately owned or abandoned, we do our utmost to provide advice and assistance.

We have helped hundreds of horses and ponies and with your help will continue to do so.

SWEP is active throughout Devon and Cornwall, regularly assisting other organisations such as the Devon & Cornwall Constabulary (including Horse Watch), DEFRA, Trading Standards Animal Welfare, local Commoners Associations, the Dartmoor National Park and World Horse Welfare.
