We’re the place for people who want to make a difference to the lives of foals, horses and ponies.
The Mare and Foal Sanctuary rescues horses and ponies that have been abandoned, neglected or abused. We also ensure that horses and ponies have a sanctuary for life. Most horses and ponies are given care for life through our network of knowledgeable carers. Those horses and ponies with more complex needs are cared for in our peaceful sanctuaries.
Our charity was founded on the principles that horses and ponies, as sentient beings and close companions of humans over the centuries, have a value and a purpose. They deserve our kindness and care. Our equine centred approach to equine assisted learning enables us to create a sense of sanctuary for people within our sanctuary for horses and ponies.
We’re also here to offer no shame advice and help with any horse or pony questions or issues you might have, to help improve the health and welfare of horses and ponies wherever they might be and no matter how well cared for
