Join the club!

Young horse fans can enjoy an exciting peek into the world of Redwings Horse Sanctuary this summer as our annual Summer Club for children returns.

Our visitor centres will be hosting fun activity sessions for children aged six to 11 every week throughout the school holidays - and bookings are being taken now!

The Summer Club will provide a taster of what it’s like to be a Redwings vet, a field officer, a farrier and even a horsey dentist with hands-on activities including giving a rescued pony a mini health check, filling tasty haynets and creating enrichment toys for donkeys.

There will also be plenty of opportunities to enjoy cuddles with the visitor centre’s adorable four-legged residents, of course.

Andie Vilela, Education and Campaigns Manager, said: “If you’re a budding vet or farrier of the future, or if you just love animals, the Redwings Summer Club is a really exciting opportunity to enjoy an exclusive, hands-on experience with our rescued horses, guided by the people who look after them every day.

“We hope as many children as possible will come along to find out more and have some fun!”

Each session costs £3 per child and places for each 45-minute session are booked on a first come, first served basis. Parents/guardians can sign up their children at the visitor centre on the day, or book in advance by emailing
