A 24-YEAR-OLD man has pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary suffering to his horse.

Abraham Rossiter, of Beechwood Drive, Meopham, appeared at Maidstone Magistrates Court last Thursday.

He admitted causing unnecessary suffering to the 20-month-old horse, which had to be put down, by failing to provide veterinary care and failing to exercise reasonable care and supervision in respect of the animals' protection.

The court heard the horse was found lying on dirty straw close to a farm at Teston, near Maidstone.

Rossiter will be sentenced at the court at a later date.
