We are a family run horse sanctuary. We take in unwanted, abused, neglected, naughty and rescue horses and ponies. We have many in at most times of the year. A few are lifers that cannot be rehomed for reasons like health etc. We do yearly contracts on the ones that we do rehome so that way the people who rehome them and the horse no where they stand. We never sell the horses at any stage even if they have been at a home for many years. When they are on contract to you they are your horse or pony to care for ie; farrier, vet, food etc. We do checks on them randomly to make sure all is ok. The horse or pony can never be sold or rehomed by yourselves if you decide that you do not want them they have to come back to the sanctuary. we do ask for a small one off donation when you rehome a horse or pony so that we can put this money to others we have in our care.
At the moment we are an unregisted charity but a registered unregistered charity which means we have signed all the declarations, code of conducts etc which the government have. We cannot be a registered charity unless we recieve £5000 worth of donations in one year but the catch 22 situation is people do not want to donate unless charities are registered so it makes it harder for us to become registered. The upside is we do not have the same rules as a registered charity which means we can help more horses as we don't have age and sex stipulations.
We do have a 75 mile radius for rehoming the horses and ponies otherwise it makes it difficult for us to come and visit them on checks.
Our aim is to help the horses and ponies become horses and ponies again! To let them know what its like to be cherished and loved and not hurt or abused. In some cases we help them to be ridden again or even gently break some in. We only do what the horses need or want and never force them or push them too hard.
We try never to turn any horses or ponies away as they all need a second chance. Who doesn't! We do welcome volunteers or any ideas on fundraising as every idea no matter how little helps!
RUG APPEAL!!!! We are always after rugs of any sort to help keep the horses and ponies warm and dry!!!! Please help!!! You can even post them directly to the horses and ponies at Seven Acre Horse Sanctuary if you live too far away as some really nice people have done this and all rugs are greatfully recieved!!
