Horses are no longer being evacuated from Ukraine; the focus has now shifted to relocating them to safer areas inside the war-ravaged country. Prior to the war, there were 100,000 horses in the Ukraine.
When Russia first invaded Ukraine, there was a massive demand for evacuation of horses. As the war has localized in the eastern and southern regions of the country, people in other areas are returning home with their horses.
The Ukrainian Equestrian Federation Charity Foundation (UEF-CF) and the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) are currently feeding more than 3,500 horses whose owners were unable to care for them, and providing feed and bedding to 150 stables.
It is estimated that more than 5,000 horses will need assistance by the end of the summer.
The UEF-CF is working with other charity organizations that assist Ukrainian equestrians to avoid overlapping efforts in aid dissemination and to assist as many stables as possible.
