Redwings Ada Cole

Redwings Ada Cole is home to 80 horses, ponies and donkeys, including handsome Gelderlander Zippy, cheeky donkey Del Boy, lovely Shetland pony Tinkerbell and rock ‘n’ roll pony Elvis – not forgetting Redwings’ tiniest resident, Teeny Tucker!

The visitor centre has reopened on a limited basis.

We are offering the opportunity for supporters to book private visits on Fridays and Mondays. To enquire about a visit to Redwings Ada Cole on these days, please email adacole.vc@redwings.co.uk.

Redwings Ada Cole will also be opening to the public one weekend per month.

While the majority of compulsory Covid rules have now been lifted, we are continuing to ask supporters to pre-book time slots for their visits on these weekends to ensure the number of people at the centre remains at a controlled level at all times and to help keep our horse care team safe.
