The UK’s leading horse charity World Horse Welfare was the beneficiary of a glamorous evening of Royal Ascot fashion hosted by the well-known racing pub in Chelsea, The Sydney Arms.

Channel Four horseracing presenter Emma Spencer introduced the event, which included a short film about the charity’s work rescuing abused and neglected horses in the UK.Binky Felstead from Made in Chelsea at charity fashion show

Star of hit show on E4, Made in Chelsea’s Binky Felstead joined the horse charity early on in the evening with her mother, Jane Felstead, who is new to the show.

Jane and Binky spoke about their love for horses and how Binky had always ridden as a child.

“Our family have grown up around horses,” says Jane. “As soon as Binky heard that this event was to raise money for abused and neglected horses she dropped everything to get here. This is a cause that is very close to both of our hearts.”

The pair stayed for a meal at the Chelsea pub and chatted with some of the staff from World Horse Welfare before leaving with a strong appreciation of the charity’s work.

Joanna Edwards of specialist boutique chain La Belle Femme choreographed the show with a mix of professional and amateur models taking to the catwalk in show-stopping outfits.

Lizzie Hughes, wife of champion Flat jockey Richard Hughes, provided some wonderful head pieces for the evening while footwear designer Kaylie Simmone added to the look with a stunning selection of bespoke handmade heels.

James Ramsden of The Sydney Arms says: “The show went down a storm with the crowd, and as a bar dedicated to horseracing we were delighted to support the great work of World Horse Welfare and help them raise vital funds. This organisation rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes more horses than any other horse charity in Britain.”

World Horse Welfare (Registered charity no: 206658 and SC038384), is an international horse charity that improves the lives of horses in the UK and worldwide through

education, campaigning and hands-on care of horses. Since we were founded in 1927, our whole approach has been practical, based on scientific evidence and our

extensive experience, and focused on delivering lasting change across the full spectrum of the horse world.

In the UK our dedicated network of Field Officers investigate and resolve welfare problems, and we run four Rescue and Rehoming Centres where horses in need can receive specialist care, undergo rehabilitation and find loving new homes through our rehoming scheme – the largest of its kind in the UK. Our international training programmes alleviate the suffering of thousands of working horses by providing essential knowledge for horse owning communities in the developing world. We also work tirelessly to change legislation and attitudes to horse welfare through campaigns and education, including our founding campaign to end the suffering endured by the tens of thousands of horses transported long-distance across Europe to slaughter each year. We support the responsible use of horses in sport, and are an official welfare arm of the Fédération Equestre Intemationale (FEI) and welfare advisors to the British Horseracing Authority.
