“Give Horses a Go” with Redwings

Give horses a go

Our visitor centres are giving everyone the chance to get closer to horses with a series of free activities as part of the national “Give Horses a Go” weekend on 17th – 18th September.

The Give Horses a Go weekend is an initiative run by the British Equestrian Federation (BEF), which will see more than 100 approved horse sanctuaries and riding schools offer free opportunities for people to find out more about these gorgeous creatures.

On both 17th and 18th September, each visitor centre will be offering the following free activities:

  • 11am (repeated at 2pm with the exception of Redwings Ada Cole) – Healthy Horses!

Children, aged 7-11, will transform into mini-vets after discovering how Redwings helps to keep its residents happy and healthy during a session of fun and hands-on demonstrations.

  • 12pm – Guided walk and talk

Go behind the scenes and find out how the Redwings’ horse care teams look after hundreds of horses, ponies, donkeys and mules every day, plus get up close and share a cuddle with some of the charity’s beloved residents.

We’re very excited to be involved in this year’s Give Horses a Go weekend to help showcase these beautiful animals, and our visitor centres - which are always completely free to enter - offer the perfect opportunity for anyone to spend time with and discover more about them.
