HorseWorld 2020 Open Days - Saturday 4th April (CANCELLED),

Saturday 4th July, and Saturday 3rd October


Please note - the Open Day on Saturday 4th April had been cancelled due to the effect of the wet weather on the fields. Now the subsequent Covid-19 outbreak could potentially affect the other events planned for later this year.


Please check this page to see if the July and October Open Days are able to go ahead before making any arrangements to visit us.


Sadly we have had to cancel our April Open Day. However, many supporters have already kindly donated what they would have spent if the event had gone ahead and for that we are extremely grateful.

Whilst we are still hoping to be able to run the July and October Open Day events, we cannot confirm this yet due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Circumstances permitting, we will be opening up the gates to the yard for our ever-popular open days. These events are the perfect day out for the whole family, and a wonderful way to see what goes on at our headquarters. You'll be able to learn more about our work in rescuing abused, neglected and abandoned horses and ponies, and see how with patient handling and plenty of care, many make a full recovery.

The stars of the day are the HorseWorld herd; there will be the opportunity to meet some of the amazing rescued horses and donkeys, and hear their stories. The rest of the herd can be seen from afar with a tractor tour – a great way to take in the beauty of the neighbouring countryside and see what life is like for the over 100 horses currently living here!

Everyone is sure to fall in love with Patty the Painting Donkey, although there’s a chance that Dakota the Trick Pony will do her best to upstage her. There will also be all the favourites on offer too: take a chance on the tombola, browse the second-hand book stall, then recover from the excitement with some delicious tea and cake.

Entry and parking are free, but no dogs are allowed on site. The event runs from 10.30am to 4pm and the address is HorseWorld, Keynes Farm, Staunton Lane, Whitchurch, Bristol BS14 0QL

We can't wait to see you, but please check this events page or our social media posts before travelling to Whitchurch.
