Urgent need for horse shelters around Malta – PN

Partit Nazzjonalista has said that there is an urgent need for horse shelters all around Malta, where horses could rest unexposed to the sun’s heat and other health risks.

In their statement, it was said that the maximum load which horses could carry must be regulated and enforced by the authorities, following an agreement between horse owners and the Animal Welfare Department.

PN also said that new routes must be planned together with the setting up of a rest period, especially during the day.
