Monty Roberts visits the work of Brooke in India
The visit to India really opened my eyes to the welfare problems that exist amongst working equines.
At times it was unbearable and the suffering I witnessed, especially at the equine fair, will stay with me forever. But, on the plus side, I also saw the wonderful work that Brooke is doing to improve the welfare of these animals. There is a lot of work to do, and I am honoured to help Brooke.
