They believe in educating the community about rural crime issues, legislation, welfare, and safety through workshops at various events and organisations. Horse Watch collaborates with organisations such as the RSPCA, World Horse Welfare, Police forces, and local authorities to tackle welfare and crime issues.

The collaborative approach of Horse Watch with other welfare organisations, such as World Horse Welfare, helps improve the lives of equines in North Wales. Their initiatives have played a significant role in reducing equine-related crimes in the region.
