Visit The Horse Trust

Before visiting the Home of Rest for retired horses please check our opening hours.

Our location is shown on the map below. Travel details are shown below with a Google map.

The Horse Trust, Home of Rest for Horses is set in 200 acres of beautiful Chiltern countryside between High Wycombe and Aylesbury, just outside Princes Risborough. Our Home of Rest for Horses is at the heart of our charity. It is here that we care for over 130 retired and rescued horses, ponies and donkeys. Visit us to see our retired working horses – from the Police and Military who have spent a lifetime serving our country or communities, to the ponies who have helped improve the lives of disabled or disadvantaged children. Meet the rescued horses, ponies and donkeys who have found sanctuary with us after suffering from cruelty or neglect. Visit our museum to find out how we helped War Horses in World War 1, take a walk around the farm to see the horses grazing in their fields or visit our Black Beauty Tea Room and gift shop to enjoy a cream tea. We look forward to meeting you!

Entrance Fees:
We are a charity and rely entirely on the support from the general public to fund our work. We have introduced a small entry fee to help us raise vital funds to care for the 130 horses, ponies and donkeys at our Home of Rest for Horses. We welcome visitors and have kept these charges as low as possible.
