Rescue stories

Every one of our rescued residents has a story to tell. Helping a horse in need and seeing their journey to recovery is one of the most rewarding aspects of our work, but sadly not every story has a happy ending. Some of our rescue stories are upsetting, but we feel it is important to tell them and recognise those we have lost as well as those we have saved.
