INTRODUCTION

Blindlove began in 2005 when Philippa, the founder and director, took in her first rescue horse, Victoria. Very quickly word spread and the number of rescue horses grew.

In 2011 disaster struck and one of the horses was diagnosed with Equine Recurrent Uveitis (ERU), a horrible disease that is the leading cause of blindness in adult horses. She was advised to end this horse’s life.

After hours and hours of research she became more determined than ever to not only give her horse a healthy, happy life but to also try and raise awareness of the plight of blind horses in South Africa. This was the founding inspiration for establishing a Non-profit trust and for the name ‘Blindlove’.

Blindlove has expanded over the past 11 years to include three more programmes these being our Community Outreach Veterinary Clinic Programme, our Human Education Programme and our new programme, Herd By A Horse.

Blindlove is a registered Non Profit Trust with the Master of the High Court of South Africa. Reg no: IT001399/2013
