Equine Day

Fri, 7th June 2019 (11.00am)

Between 11.00am-2.00pm come along and watch our equine team at work in our new sand school. You can see them work with Frodo, Magic and Pacer demonstrating the different levels of work we do with our ponies before hopefully re homing them in their forever homes.

Our sand school was completed back in March, with Magic being the first pony to try it! Huge thanks to the Elise Pilkington Charitable Trust for their generous grant to enable us to make this amazing space a reality to help our equines. We are very grateful to RWL Roofing & Property Maintenance Cumbria and AJT Electrical for their hard work in constructing it.

It all began with equines... Our Charity’s history began in London on June 9th, 1909, when animal welfare pioneer Francis Cox launched The National Equine Defence League to improve the plight of the 72,000 pit ponies whose lives were spent hauling heavy coal carts in Britain’s coal mines.
