Who we are

BARTA is a Community Interest Company, designed to collaborate with and benefit a range of stakeholder groups to advance practices in support of people and animals during emergencies and other traumatic events. BARTA’s Operations Director reports to the BARTA Board, who in turn are accountable to the trustees of our parent charity. 

BARTA became a subsidiary of The Horse Trust charity in 2019 to ensure long term stability and sustainability. The Horse Trust vision is to support horses in crisis and those who help horses in crisis, through education and training.

Our wider BARTA community wouldn't exist without the many dedicated people who contribute their time, skills and expertise across all species groups to help us fulfil our vision, inspiring excellence in animal response.
