About Us


Our mission is to improve the quality of life of all horses, ponies and donkeys living in the UK and we aim to do this by:

  1. Providing respite and retirement to working horses at our Home of Rest for Horses. This includes the Army horses who have served our nation, the Police horses who have protected our communities from violence, and the ponies who have worked with charities to bring joy to disadvantaged and disabled children and young people. We also provide sanctuary and specialist care for horses, ponies and donkeys that have been rescued from cruelty or neglect.

  2. Funding non-invasive scientific research that will advance our knowledge of horse health, disease and veterinary treatment, which has the potential to improve the lives of all horses.

  3. Developing tailored training and qualifications for equine professionals on subjects related to horse welfare, which results in improved knowledge and better practical skills.
