The Peter O’Sullevan Charitable Trust

Now in its 25th Year The Peter O’Sullevan Charitable Trust has now distributed over £12million to a range of equine and equine related projects. The trust was established to provide funds for the welfare of animals, particularly horses.

Sir Peter was a true champion of horses and of horse welfare and his retirement allowed him to devote more time to this important work, always making himself available to the various charities involved, and tirelessly working to better the lot of the retired, injured, or ill-treated animal, forgotten by an uncaring or unconcerned former owner.
