Have an egg-citing Easter at Redwings Oxhill!
If you love horses you’ll have bucketfuls of fun with our residents during the school holidays!
This Easter, we’re celebrating all things horsey with fun activities every day from Friday 27th March including daily meet and greets with our special Adoption Stars and residents.
For an opportunity for extra cuddles with our lovely ponies, why not join in one of our grooming sessions? On Tuesday 31st March, and Thursday 2nd, Tuesday 7th and Thursday 9th April we’re offering pony grooming for children over five years old, tickets for which are available on the day from the information centre for a £3 donation.
Don’t forget to bring along a cushion and your favourite teddy to our horsey story time on Friday 27th March – tickets available on the day for a £1 donation. And if you’re feeling crafty, why not join in with one of our art activities and make a special memento to take home with you? On Monday 30th March you can decorate a horseshoe, and on Friday 3rd April you can make a colourful horsey egg cosy – perfect for all those Easter eggs! On Monday 6th April join in our handprint horse workshop, and on Friday 10th April you can make a fantastic hobby horse! All art activities are available for a £1 donation.
On Wednesday 1st and 8th April you can find out more about all the different kinds of horses that live at Redwings with a talk from our expert farm team. On 1st April we also launch our very special Easter gurning contest – try on one of our heavy horse harnesses and pull your very best funny horsey face!
Plus every day you can join in our fun Easter egg quiz trail – quiz sheets are available from the information desk for a 50p donation.
Redwings Oxhill is open every day from 10am – 4pm. For more information about our activities, pop into the centre or call our visitor helpline 0870 040 0033.
