During the warmer months, we open the gates of the Sanctuary on the afternoon of one Sunday per month and invite you to come and see the horses and learn about what we do.
It’s a wonderful chance to hear about the stories behind each of our animals, how we have brought them back to health and the methods we use to rehabilitate them. We will also explain about how our horses work alongside us to welcome members of the community to the Sanctuary for respite and time away from the challenges of daily life.
Open Sundays start at 2pm with a tour of the site followed by tea, coffee and cakes in the barn or orchard – weather permitting! We will show you our presentation and you will have the chance to ask our team any questions.
Entry to the open Sunday events cost £3 for adults, £2 for children and under 5's are free! The charge is just to cover the costs of putting on the event - we hope you understand! You do need to buy tickets to reserve your place - there are no tickets available on the gate.
The following dates are available to book - please click on the date you wish to join us and it will take you to the ticket booking page:
We do hope you can join us and look forward to welcoming you on site soon!
"A brilliant afternoon and very informative. The Sanctuary is so organised and clean, and the ponies look in brilliant condition and living out naturally in herds. I am very impressed. Such nice, friendly, helpful volunteers who kindly let me drive around because of my knee injury. I much appreciated this kindness."
Why not come and join our wonderful team of volunteers?
We can offer a range of opportunities for groups of young volunteers.
Come and be a groom for the day for our smallest residents.
