First guide horse used in UK

February 20, 2018

A visually impaired man will become the first person in the UK to use a guide horse instead of a guide dog.

Mohammed Salim Patel, 23, will be paired with eight-month-old American Miniature Horse Digby, due to his deep fear of dogs.

Digby is also currently in the process of being toilet-trained, an important skill for any guide animal.

Current owner Katy Smith, from North Yorkshire, says a guide horse, instead of a guide dog, is a better option for some people.

Mr Patel is excited to live with Digby, although he understands they both have a bit to learn and adjustments will need to be made when he arrives.
