Lluest Horse and Pony Trust

Rescue Rehabilitate Rehome

Lluest is Welsh for safe haven and that is what we provide - a safe haven for neglected, abandoned and abused horses.

Lluest was founded in 1985 by Ginny Hajdukievicz. Since then over 350 equines have been rescued, rehabilitated and often rehomed.

Lluest is a registered charity, that relies completely on charitable giving and fundraising activities for its day to day existence.

Turning sad horses into happy horses.

Rescued horses can rescue people too.

Founded 1985

  • Mission statement

    Objectives and Activities
    The protection of equines in need of care and attention by reason of old age, sickness, maltreatment, neglect, poor circumstances or other similar cases.

    To place suitable equines in approved homes, and inspect regularly.

    To school equines to a standard that they can be made available for the riding by and for the pleasure of able, disabled and disadvantaged people.

    To monitor conditions at markets and the surrounding mountain and marshland areas in the south west area of Wales.

    To assist in education of responsible horse ownership, the raising of awareness to control indiscriminate breeding, and of the importance of reporting suspected cases of cruelty and neglect.

    Public benefit and education - preparations are underway for a sustained increase in numbers of people accessing our facility. Workshops aimed at the younger equine owner and based on essential equine care are being prepared. Currently there are a number of disadvantaged young people and groups accessing our site as volunteers and some seeking work experience.

    Volunteers are recruited by word of mouth and via volunteer agencies. Volunteers form a vital part of the work we do with rescued horses and ponies at the Trust. Volunteers are welcomed regardless of their personal background, circumstances, gender or faith and are valued for their contribution in enabling the Trust to continue with their work.
