Bransby Horses is one of the UK’s largest equine welfare charities in the UK, completely funded by the generosity of public donations.

We are dedicated to improving the lives of horses, ponies, donkeys and mules since we were established in 1968.

We have rescued, rehabilitated, re-homed or retired thousands of equines and we are working harder than ever to continue making a positive difference to equines wherever and whenever we can.

Between our two sites in Lincolnshire and Herefordshire we have over 400 animals currently in our care, which keeps us constantly busy.

Bransby Horses Visitor Centre near Lincoln is open to the public. A great day out for all the family with plenty to see and do.

The visitor centre had been rebuilt since our previous visit several years ago and is a pleasant space with some nice gifts. Most importantly, the horses are well kept and happy. A nice afternoon out and buying a few gifts - or 'adopting' a horse helps to keep the place running.

This is in an attractive rural setting, plenty of walks and horses and donkeys to see. A good way to spend time on a family outing.

Peaceful country site. Lovely walks round the paddocks of horses. Beautifully restored barns and other farm buildings. Welcoming shop and cafe. Home made food, limited range but what there is is good. Large car park. Staff and volunteers find time to introduce the horses and their stories. Well worth a visit.

We took our children to this charming horse sanctuary where we had a wonderful time. It's such a relaxing and enjoyable place where the kids can play and the adults can make use of the cafe. The horses are very well looked after and we will definitely be returnungt

If you fancy a peaceful stroll this is the place. Walk the grassy paths or lean on the fence and watch the lovely beasts. Gorgeous shires..

I personally have a horse from Bransby. This horse I used to ride when he was a youngster and now being a veteran has served his purpose. Unfortunately he came to Bransby. Which as soon as I heard I contacted them straight away. The staff work tirelessly all for the purpose of these beautiful animals. My horse and myself have... More
