Bransby Horses is one of the UK’s largest equine welfare charities.

Dedicated to improving the lives of horses, ponies, donkeys and mules since it was established in 1968, Bransby Horses has rescued and rehabilitated; re-homed or retired literally hundreds of animals and we are working harder than ever to continue making a positive difference to equines wherever and whenever we can.

Bransby Horses operates two extremely busy equine rescue Centres in Lincolnshire and Herefordshire. Around 400 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules are cared for across the Charity at any one time, with many more animals being rescued from neglect and cruelty every year. Our Lincolnshire site is open to the public every day and offers the chance to meet many of our wonderful equine residents, learn more about horses and their needs and find out more about the vital work the Charity carries out.
