Horse kept near the prison

Just came back from a walk over the Downs up to Mount Harry and back again. Saw a horse being kept on what I assume is public land near the prison. He (or she - I did not look that closely) was surrounded by a metal cage of about 20ft by 10ft with about three inches of water in a bucket. No shade from the baking sun. Anyway know what he / she is doing there and who owns him / her?

You might need to be more specific with directions HMP Lewes is very big.

The horse was kept on a patch of land next to the footpath leading from Hawkenbury Way to Spital Road via the north side of the prison. It was just before a collection of caravans, assuming one is coming from Hawkenbury Way. The horse looked well cared for, and did not look to be in much distress. Then again, I know next to nothing about horses. I know I would not like to be kept in those conditions, with next to no water and no shade whatsoever.

I believe that it belongs to the stables that are at the top of the road by the prison

The media is full of evidence about drug use amongst senior Tories and yet they are the ones pontificating ! More Tory... more
