The Horse Trust

For over 130 years The Horse Trust’s Home of Rest for Horses has specialised in providing retirement and respite for working horses and ponies. These hard-working equine public servants have served our nation in the Police, the Army or with charities which use horses to help people. We also provide sanctuary to horses, ponies and donkeys who have suffered from cruelty or neglect and who are in desperate need of specialist treatment and care.

The Horse Trust Will Remain Closed Throughout 2020

23/09/2020
It is with very heavy hearts that we must inform you that The Horse Trust will not be reopening properly to the general public until at least Easter 2021, due to COVID-19 restrictions. We do ask you to stay tuned and keep an eye on our social media pages and website, as there will be a special announcement soon in regards to bespoke site visits.
