Brooke, Action For Working Horses and Donkeys, is an international charity that protects and improves the lives of horses, donkeys and mules which give people in the developing world the opportunity to work their way out of poverty. For 600 million people in some of the poorest places in the world, 112 million of these animals are the backbone of their communities and the best means of making a living. Without healthy working horses, donkeys and mules, they wouldn’t be able to put food on their tables, send their children to school or build better futures for themselves and their families. However, these animals can often suffer from disease, malnutrition and overwork. Brooke works hard to delivers significant and lasting change, even in some of the world’s most challenging areas. We use our expertise to train and support owners of horses, donkeys and mules, local vets, farriers, harness makers and animal traders to improve standards of care. Operating in 11 different countries, and funding projects in 4 others, Brooke now reaches over 1.8 million working horses, donkeys and mules, more than any other organisation. We are on target to reach two million working equines each year by 2016.

Thank you for visiting our page. We are incredibly excited (and a little daunted) by our challenge to run 10 marathons on 10 consecutive days around the British Isles, starting on Good Friday 14th April 2017 and finishing at the London Marathon on 24th April 2017.

Our challenge has been generously supported by PetPlan along with Denplan, Independent VetCare, BCF Technologies, Vet Dynamics, Vet Share and Eight legal.

We really appreciate all your support and generous donations, we know the money we raise will make a big difference to the horses, donkeys and their owners, so thank you for helping us facilitate these positive changes. Please follow our journey and the challenge at

Thanks again 

Carolyne and Brian
