Mulatu, a 13-year-old horse, was brought to our SPANA centre in Bishoftu, Ethiopia, suffering with an agonising girth harness wound. Every day, Mulatu travels around Bishoftu with his young owner, Chala, transporting goods and working as a taxi service. In the hot and humid conditions, the horse’s old girth started to rub against his skin, causing a painful open wound to develop.

At the centre, the team gently cleaned Mulatu’s girth sore and applied a soothing cream. They then gave him a brand new, comfortable padded harness. The team showed Chala how to apply the cream and correctly position the padding to protect Mulatu from further injury. With your help, we can distribute comfortable equipment as well as train owners in how to make and fit their own padded harnesses.
