Events » Open Day: 12th Aug 2017

This Open Day is a great opportunity to see what goes on at HorseWorld's Welfare Department and talk to the grooms and trainers who rescue, nurse back to health, train and then find suitable homes for these wonderful animals. 
 
There will also be a sale of Tack, rugs and horse equipment going on throughout the day! 
 
As well as the rehoming scheme, you will be able to find out about our adoption scheme for those who can't actually have a horse or pony of their own. (An adoption is a sponsorship of a horse that remains at HorseWorld) Those who adopt HorseWorld animals will be able to see them.
 
If you don't already adopt an animal, there will be the opportunity to do so. This is a day that is open to everyone including children and disabled. There is just one nature walk that is not suitable for wheelchairs or buggies but everything else is easily accessible.
You will be able to meet many of the rescued horses that are now fit and healthy and in the process of rehabilitation.
 
There will be refreshments and HorseWorld merchandise available.
Entry is free! Please consider popping a donation in one of the buckets towards our ongoing rescue work.

(Please note, if the wet weather keeps up, the tractor tours may be running on a reduced schedule as the tractor has to go slower on wet ground.)
 
If you are able to volunteer for the day to help with refreshments, helping on a stall, greeting people or traffic marshalling, please call 01275 893035. Thank you.
 
No dogs please. Except guide and assistance dogs. This is because many of the rescued ponies in the yard that day have not completed their rehabilitation yet and are not used to being around dogs or may have previously had a negative experience with them.
 
There will be the opportunity to go on a walking tour around the 180 acre estate to see the Isolation Unit and Nature Area (Uneven ground. Wellies strongly advised if it's been raining).
