Family Fun Day - Sunday 21st August 2022

You will be able to wander around our fields and tracks, meeting all of our rescued horses, learning about how they came to be with us and how we take care of them now.  But also, how they work alongside our team to offer respite and therapeutic sessions to the members of our local community who benefit from time spent with them. Our team of staff and volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and tell you more....

Live music will be performed in our orchard throughout the afternoon and there will be games and tombolas for the young and old, meet the Shetland ponies sessions, presentations, our wonderful on-site shop and tractor rides.

We are also being joined by many local craftsmen and women who will have stalls with amazing produce, crafts and gifts for you to browse.

And of course, we will have refreshments and beer and Pimms tent too.

The afternoon is set to be a wonderful chance for us to meet together and to relax and enjoy a few hours amongst friends. 

We offer tickets on a first come, first served basis, so please book early to avoid disappointment - this is a wonderful afternoon for all the family to enjoy in the peaceful surroundings of our Sanctuary and our horses.

Thank you so much for everyone who has bought tickets for our Family Fun Day - we are now sold out for this event. We are not able to sell any more online tickets or on the gate as we have reached our capacity.
