Not usually. Many of the horses and ponies in our herd have been subjected to high levels of abuse and can be very noise-sensitive and movement-sensitive. This is why we need all visitors to the Sanctuary to be able to self-regulate. We would also need to find a volunteer that had time to show you around and keep you safe. This is not always possible.

Regular visits as part of the activities that you do with your client are definitely not possible.

If you have a client that can self-regulate and you believe that they would benefit from being at the Sanctuary on a regular basis, please have them or their guardian call our Program Development Manager, Sue Williams, on 04272 500 463 to talk about programs that may suit them.

You might like to consider bringing them along to our Morning Tea With Mumma events that are usually held on Wednesdays – please check the Events page for availability.
