Ban on Susan Savage of Biddenden on keeping animals lifted but conditional discharge remains

29 August 2014
by Express reporter

A woman has had a ban on keeping horses for three years lifted.

Susan Savage had the penalty imposed by magistrates after admitting failing to address the fact her colt was underweight and not seeking veterinary care.

The court had heard that the two-year-old was found by the RSPCA collapsed and with a painful penis condition in a field at Standen Barn, Biddenden, and had to be put down.

The colt was put down as it was too sickly to be saved

Savage appealed against the sentence at Maidstone Crown Court, where her three-year conditional discharge was unaltered.

But the ban on keeping horses for three years was removed, costs were reduced from £8,000 to £500, and she was granted £75 travel costs.

The horse was found to be incredibly skinny

Savage, 52, was living in Rolvenden Road, Benenden at the time of the offences but now lives in London.
