Charity information

Shy Lowen Horse And Pony Sanctuary

Shy Lowen is an equine rescue for animals which are unwanted often owing to behavioural issues. We are an educational facility supporting young people and ‘at risk’ young people.

Founded 1999

  • Mission statement

    We rescue, rehabilitate and rehome equines in need. Our retraining methods are based on horse whispering techniques which are totally pain free. We rehome on a permanent loan contract so that the equine and the person providing the home have a safety net as the animals are returned to the sanctuary should they be unwanted. The core themes and spritual feel are based on quotations from our Patron Monty Roberts when he says ''Violence is never the answer'' and ''No person has the right to tell any other human or animal 'you must or I'll hurt you' ''
    It is a wholesome place of peace and was described by a visiting journalist as 'an oasis of peace in a mad world'.
    Our youth programme provides education to young volunteers and 'at risk' youth through our alternative curriculum provision. The education programmes are values based and allow the young people to improve their self esteem whilst supporting the work of Shy Lowen.
    All life is valued at Shy Lowen and there is an abundance of wild life at the site which aids the feeling of well-being of all who visit.
