The Horse Trust

Posted on


Did you see The Horse Trust on the national news today (4th June 2024)?  They are looking after Vida and Quaker who are recovering from their ordeal after galloping through the streets of London!  The other horses involved are back at work, and three of the five soldiers are too!  Find out more here.. 

On to the Horse Trust....

The amazing Horse Trust in Buckinghamshire look after horses who have retired from the police and military, and ex-therapy ponies.   Commando worked for the Household Cavalry, for instance, whilst Darwen had his career with the Lancashire Constabulary.  Sydney spent most of his working life with the Royal Mews and Trojan worked for the Thames Valley Police.

Rubin is absolutely stunning.
Rubin came from the South Wales Police, and he likes bananas!
You can sponsor Rubin from £3 a month.
Find out more about Rubin here.

The Trust also take in severe welfare cases, and examples include Star who came from Spindles Farm and Bear  and Shetlands Fidget and Widget who were found in a field with only a puddle to drink from and no grass to eat.

Meet Fidget and Widget!
Fidget and Widget are two very cheeky Shetlands.  
They love running circles around the grooms!
You can find out more about them and sponsor them here.

You can sponsor these horses and ponies to help the Horse Trust care for them.   Visit their Sponsor A Resident page here.

Please donate here if you can
to help them give these ponies the best care possible.

And please visit if you can - the times and open days are here.  The Trust is in Buckinghamshire.  It's an incredible place to visit - full of love, goodwill and kindness.  (I find the most difficult bit is not to try to smuggle any four footed friends into the car and take them home, but I know they receive the best care possible at the Trust, so I drive away without b

ut with happy memories of a lovely visit.)  Find out more about visiting the Trust here.

Our thanks to everyone looking after these wonderful horses, ponies and donkeys, and thank you too to the animals themselves for their service and love.
