In light of the continually evolving nature of the coronavirus pandemic, we are closed to visitors for the foreseeable future. All spring activities have been cancelled.
Our Bransby site, welcomes thousands of visitors each year, and although we will be closed, our site will remain operational so we can continue to care for the 362 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules in our care.
Jo Snell, our CEO says:
“This really is a period of uncertainty for many people across the UK, with heavy flooding during the winter and now the coronavirus pandemic. Like many, we've been impacted too and it's important we prioritise the health and safety of our staff, visitors and equines.
"In April, the situation will be re-evaluated and the site will only reopen if guidelines from the Government confirm this is the best course of action at that time.
"We are facing challenging times. It was only November 2019 when serious flooding affected our land. During the flooding, an additional £200,000 was needed to urgently move some of the equines from the Bransby site to our site at Barlings, where we had to set up temporary facilities. This spring, as coronavirus hits the UK, like many organisations, we are preparing for the worst but we are hoping for the best."
