How To Help



At the present time the Heavy Horse Centre relies solely on income that it takes through entrance fees which is never enough to cover its running costs however we are in the midst of setting up a Charity for the horses this will enable us to fundraise. The charity will be known as “Heavy Horse Sanctuary And Education Centre”

If you would like to help the Heavy Horse Centre there are several ways of doing this You can “Adopt a Horse” You can buy food etc for the horses or you can set up a donation from your bank account.

Costs of the Heavy Horse Centre per year

We have over 20 Heavy Horses most elderly with issues! the cost of keeping each Heavy Horse for a year is in access of £3000 each and as they are in the stables during opening hours to meet the visitors they tend to chomp through mountains of hay! Other costs to keep the Centre running include:Insurances, Business rates, Advertising, Utility Bills, Staff Wages, Maintenance of the park and buildings plus any additional costs to add new attractions each year!

This year due to a shortage of hay we are in for a harder struggle as hay costs are soaring through the roof due to a harsh winter last year and a very wet summer
