Bransby Horses Team-up With Specialist Firm to Offer Free Will Writing Service

2nd June 2023

We have partnered with Bequeathed who work with hundreds of UK charities like ours to make it even easier for you, our loyal supporters, to make or update your Will – and it’s completely free.

Having an up-to-date Will is the best way to make sure the people and causes you care about are looked after when you’re gone.

In order to be able to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome all of the horses, ponies, donkeys and mules that need our help, we rely entirely on donations from the public.

Legacies – also known as gifts in Wills – represent 69 per cent of our yearly income and provides funding for three in four horses in our care; without them, we would simply cease to exist.

Bransby Horses Executive Director of Equine Welfare Emma Carter said: “From our Field Officers investigating reports of neglect and abandonment, to our Rehoming Team placing our rehabilitated and healthy equines in their loving homes – legacies provide the essential funds for our daily activities.

“I’ll never forget their impact during the different crises we’ve faced over the last few years either. Without them, I’m not sure we’d be there for horses in need in the same capacity as we are today.”

The service is available to anyone, regardless of whether they leave a gift in their Will to Bransby Horses.

To take up the free Will service just follow these simple steps:

1. Take a short questionnaire online in as little as 20 minutes at

The Bequeathed online system creates your Will from your answers which is then transferred to one of their legal professionals. If you can’t get online, please call us on 01427 788464 to talk you through the form.

2. Arrange a suitable time for a 30-minute in-person, telephone or video appointment with a legal professional. They will discuss your situation and your wishes and confirm the Will caters for your needs.

3. Receive your free Will in the post to sign and return for it to be checked it has been executed correctly.

A gift of this kind is an incredible way to celebrate your love for animals and to leave a lasting legacy to horses, ponies, donkeys and mules in need. Help us transform the lives of equines together with a gift left to Bransby Horses in your free Will.
