Charity information

Redwings Horse Sanctuary

Redwings Horse Sanctuary was established in 1984 and works to provide and promote the welfare, care and protection of horses, ponies, donkeys and mules. Redwings does not recieve any government funding and relies entirely on donations from the public to carry out its work rescuing and rehabilitating horses, offering specialist Sanctuary care and seeking to educate owners before problems arise.

Every year Redwings takes in around 200 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules in need of help. Many are elderly, have veterinary problems or are extremely nervous, so benefit from the Sanctuary's specialist Horse Hospital and Rehabilitation Centre. Many of these horses will stay at the Sanctuary for the rest of their days and over 1000 equines currently live at Redwings' farms in Norfolk, Essex and Warwickshire. That's a lot of mouths to feed! Those horses and ponies with the potential for a life outside the Sanctuary are re-homed through the Redwings' Guardianship Scheme and more than 500 are currently enjoying life in Guardian homes across the East of England.
