Did you know? A central part of Redwings’ mission is to promote the welfare and care of horses and ponies through the education of the public.
In simple terms, that means we want to spread the word about what horse-centred care looks like, and show everyone just how much fulfilment and fun our beloved four-legged friends can bring to all our lives.
We can talk about the history of horses and humans, we can talk about good welfare, we can talk about how animal welfare law works, we can talk about the basics of horse ownership – we can even talk about Redwings!
As well as a visit to one of our centres around the UK, we can also offer a virtual talk – we call them our REDTalks! We can offer the choice of a general Redwings talk or a talk about how we look after our horses based on their Five Needs.
Whatever the subject, if you’d like to come and visit us with your school or community group, or even if you’d like to connect with us through the magic of your computer screen, we’d love to talk horses with you!
We can cater for all ages with our talks and tours!
This can be carried out via MS Teams or Zoom as you prefer (or contact us to discuss other options!) and can include a virtual 'Meet the Resident' which always proves popular!
Tailored school visits
If you are from a school, college or an equine organisation and would like a tailored visit, simply contact us to discuss your requirements so we can make sure we provide the best experience for your students!
How much does it cost?
We do not charge for group or virtual visits as we want to spread the Redwings message far and wide! You may, however, wish to make a donation or fall in love with one of our residents and choose to sponsor them as a group. This is a great way to support our work and to keep in touch with the Sanctuary. Meet our Adoption Stars.
