    Help

    We need help with the horses as well as your skills to help us keep the place maintained. We can only take a maximin of two volunteers at any one time so do not be to disappointed if we are not always able to host you . We now have more rescue horses ( including a 12 week old foal ) and our priority at the moment is to rehome a 5 year old and so she needs to be ridden on by an experienced , competent rider .All our horses our free to roam around as a herd which is not a conventional stable yard set up.
