Easter Egg Trail 2018

Considering all of the rain that we have had recently, we were extremely lucky with the weather last Saturday for our Easter Egg trail.  Whilst the ground underfoot was very wet (and very muddy!), all of those taking part were not deterred, even when we had a little drizzle, and they worked their way around […]

Our Four Mares’ special day

We had a really important but also special day with our four new mares last week. The chestnut, Seren, had a damaged hoof when she came to the Sanctuary and the split in it drastically increased overnight, so after consultation with our vet, we were advised she needed immediate treatment to prevent it damaging more […]

2017 Review

2017 has been a bit of a pivotal year in the life of Mane Chance, and despite all the changes happening, what has remained steady is the hard work of the staff and volunteers and the support of so many of you – without that, we couldn’t have functioned as well as we have this […]

New Year’s Day Walk

Eaten a couple of mince pies too many? Or watched a few extra hours of TV??? Why not start the New Year with an enjoyable and fun-filled walk around the Sanctuary – see our beautiful horses, ponies, chickens and countryside. What a wonderful way to dust off those cobwebs. A two mile walk (or shorter […]

Christmas Carols

Our Christmas Carols in association with Uneek Ibiza at the Church of St. Peter & St. Paul in Godalming, certainly had a unique feel about it! Bing may have been dreaming of a white Christmas but on the morning of our carol service when much of the UK woke up to a snow scene, our […]
