Overview

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.

Love horses. Got there about 12. All the horses are beautiful and well cared for. We didn't get round them all, but had 4 hours of pleasure looking at them and interacting with them. More time is needed next time. We especially loved the Arabs

You cannot ride the horses at bransby as they are mainly rescue or retired, however you can have one hour ride in Lincoln for £20 at park riding school on the common which is fantastic
