Will you remember the horses at Redwings Horse Sanctuary?

Redwings Horse Sanctuary believes that every horse, pony, donkey and mule has the right to a happy and healthy life, free of fear and neglect.

The charity rescues neglected and abandoned equines from all over the country, giving them a safe place to live and providing essential veterinary treatment, rehabilitation and care for the rest of their lives. Indeed, the charity currently provides daily care for over 1,500 rescued residents, making Redwings the UK’s largest horse sanctuary.

Redwings is 100% funded by public donations and every donation helps the charity help horses in need. In addition to giving every equine the opportunity for lifelong sanctuary care, Redwings also has visitor centres around the UK, where visitors have the chance to meet some of its rescued horses and donkeys, hear their stories and find out more about the importance of equine welfare.

Due to Covid-19 our visitor centres in Norfolk, Essex, Warwickshire and Scotland had to close temporarily. Please check our website – for the latest updates and opening times.

As well as its Sanctuary residents, Redwings is also responsible for 700 horses and ponies living in loving Guardian homes as part of its rehoming scheme. The Redwings Guardianship Scheme is devoted to finding homes for those horses that have the potential to lead a happy life outside the Sanctuary, so more horses in need have the opportunity to be brought into the charity’s care.

Redwings currently rehomes to East Anglia, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire, but will shortly expand its reach into Central England with the opening of a brand-new rehoming centre at its Warwickshire visitor centre. This vital development has been funded with help by kind gifts left in Wills.

Gifts in Wills make up the largest proportion of Redwings’ income and the charity simply wouldn’t be able to function without them. Remembering Redwings in your Will is a wonderful way to support the charity’s work and leave a lasting legacy that will help them to help horses, ponies, donkeys and mules for generations to come. Whether your gift is large or small, every donation makes a real difference to the future of Redwings’ residents.
