2019-05-05   Horse Breeder Jailed

A Leeds Crown Court judge jailed 54-year-old Andrew Hinde of Becca Farm, Aberford, for eleven months and banned him from keeping animals indefinitely for showing a "cavalier attitude" to animal welfare. Hinde kept 20 horses at his own farm and more than 50 ponies in fields he rented at Westfield Farm at Kirk Smeaton. In February 2017 RSPCA inspectors went to Westfield Farm and found some of the ponies were in poor condition.
