We provide sanctuary to horses and ponies.
A home for love and stability, for the horses and ponies rescued from misery and from wondering where their next feed would come from.

Each equine has their own tale to tell...
We are a rescue centre with over 31 horses, mares, foals and ponies.

We are based in Polegate in East Sussex.

We are self funding and have been since 2005 but with the rising costs, hefty bills for feed, hay and bedding, plus the inevitable costs of essential veterinary care which runs into thousands each year.

This will also benefit the horse owners unable to reach their financial commitments for their own horses, which we help by fostering until times improve, saving the much loved equine from ending up being slaughtered or with unscrupulous owners.

Indie's Story...

July 2011 we were asked to take Indie as she was so poorly and emaciated, no one wanted her, worm riddled and infested with lice, we of course picked her up.

Indie was wild - terrified of human contact, she had an enormous belly and both the vet and ourselves were unsure if this was due to extensive worm damage or whether she was in fact pregnant.

In May 2011 Indie gave birth to a beautiful healthy colt foal Lakota, for the next 7 months Indies trust in me grew - the fearful wild look she arrived with was replaced with an endearing softness and trust in her eyes.

Indie's foal continued to thrive for the next 7 months, we hoped with care and feeding Indie would also return to health but although she ate well, and was bright in herself, Indie's, extensive gut damage (due to worms) had gone too far.

The vets tried but there was little they could do, Indie was given 4 feeds a day, she lost 98 % of the goodness given, she may only have receive 2% goodness.

Indie continued to eat well and look bright in herself until December 2011 when one day I found her lying in her stable with her foal close by, she looked at me with her endearing eyes but could not stand, her body wracked with gut damage which had finally disabled her, Indie still ate her breakfast with her foal, I phoned the vet, but there was nothing more they could do.

Indie went to sleep that morning leaving behind her beautiful healthy son Lakota, I believe she kept herself going till her son was able to manage alone - her job was over, she left him knowing he was in safe hands with us, RIP Indie....
