Bransby Horses is busy planning their schedule of summer activities which start on 22nd July. As well as the trails and walks to explore on the site and a chance to meet the horses, donkeys and mules, the charity will also be holding new activities designed to help families get creative, messy, imaginative and close to nature. Entry to Bransby Horses is free with organised activities from free to £5 per person.
Activities include bird box making, nature trails, detective challenges and other new activities, suitable for ages 3 years and above. These give children and their families a chance to get messy, get creative, learn skills, meet other families and children and maybe event craft a great memento to take home to remember their day.
With more than 400 horses, donkeys and mules on the site, there are plenty of opportunities to meet the animals rescued by the charity and even wave hello to an animal which can be adopted through the charity’s support adoption scheme.
Vicky Varney, Event Coordinator at Bransby Horses said:
“The plans for this summer are shaping up to be our best yet, with lots of things to do and see. If you are looking for a place to spend a day, learn more about horses and donkeys, find out more about what our teams do, enjoy the countryside and get creative, we are the perfect place. Even if the weather forecast is rain, we still have plenty to do inside and if you’re a family who doesn’t let the rain dampen their day, there are plenty of chances to do some puddle jumping!”
Bransby Horses is open 362 days a year and is open 9am – 5pm this summer. With more than 400 equines spread across 600 acres and a team of 150 who rescue, rehabilitate and care for each animal, the charity is committed to raising awareness and funds to continue their work. As well as walkways, play areas, animals to see and picnic areas, there is also a café, The Feedroom Café, serving hot and cold food, drinks and a wide selection of cakes.
Visitors are being asked to share their experiences and use #gallopintosummer to help celebrate the summer at Bransby Horses.
