A spokesperson for RSPCA, said: "This is a really sad incident and must have been very upsetting for people to see.
"Our local officer has visited to investigate and sadly it appears the pony wasn't in good bodily condition, so we're concerned about how and why they died. Sadly, it is not uncommon for the RSPCA to receive reports of dead, dying or very unwell horses dumped like rubbish.
"The country has been experiencing a 'horse crisis' for several years, with fears that the worst may still be yet to come in the event of another financial recession.
"Unfortunately the pony wasn't microchipped so we encourage anyone with any information to come forward and contact us on our inspector's appeal line number, on 0300 123 8018."Yes, the RSPCA shamelessly uses this as an opportunity to beg for funding, leading you to believe that this poor animal belonged to Arabella High-Falutin, and was cruelly dumped so daddy could afford to buy another yacht.
Is anyone fooled? I'm not.
