Horsing around at Redwings Oxhill!
What’s the difference between a horse and a pony? Why do horses eat so much? Have you met the tallest horse at Redwings?! Come to our wonderful Oxhill visitor centre this summer and find out more!
Having celebrated the bundles of fun that are our donkey and pony residents in recent weeks, it’s the turn of our beautiful rescued horses to take centre stage for the remainder of the summer holidays.
With a great range of daily activities including hands-on horsey sessions, walks and talks, fascinating demonstrations and children’s crafts there’s definitely something for everyone! To plan your trip simply click here to download our daily activity schedule.
Don’t forget our special Summer Club too! The club meets every Wednesday to give young visitors the chance to get involved and see behind the scenes of the UK’s largest horse sanctuary – and it’s completely free!
And Adoption Star Dylan would be most put out if we didn’t tell you about his special birthday party! The party is taking place on Sunday 30th August and this cheekiest of chaps is sure to be making the most of all the attention, not to mention his own bespoke birthday cake!
Whatever you’re up to this summer, make a date with Redwings and enjoy free entry, free parking and a very warm welcome!
