Charity number


The Equine Grass Sickness Fund is the only UK charity raising funds specifically for research into equine grass sickness. This is an often fatal disease of horses and ponies which causes damage to parts of the nervous system, producing the main symptom of gut paralysis. Acute and sub-acute EGS are fatal. Some horses can survive the third and mildest form, chronic grass sickness. The cause of the disease, which affects up to 2% of horses and ponies in high risk areas, is as yet unknown and there is no cure.
