Guests at the 2022 VIP Day

Special guests enjoy behind the scenes tour of Bransby Horses

21st October 2022

We welcomed over 50 special guests for our annual VIP Days last month.

These special days for our Friends of Bransby Horses members take place once a year and are always a popular benefit of membership. Members each pay an annual fee of £60 or £5 a month – their support is invaluable to us in raising much needed funds.

Our way of saying ‘thank you’ for your support

Our VIP Days are a way for us to say thank you and also offer members a glimpse behind the scenes at the work we do.

With limited availability, demand for tickets are high and places are allocated on a first come first served basis – one member even made a special journey from France to attend.

Of course the real stars of the day were the horses, whom all of the guests enjoyed meeting and learning more about.

One guest said, “It was lovely seeing all the areas we’re not usually able to access – such as the yards, the foals and listening to the girls giving a potted history of the horses involved in the day.”

Another said, “We particularly enjoyed the session about equine behaviour, learning about how horse’s think and interact with each other, as well as herd structure. I am very interested in how they communicate with each other – and us.”

Greeted by our CEO, Jo Snell and Executive Director of Equine Welfare, Emma Carter to start the day, guests enjoyed a charity update as well as exclusive information about a recent rescue case concluding before enjoying a full day of activities.









On the rehabilitation yard, they were introduced to some of the horses including Toby and Tinker, who are the best of friends, as well as Rev and Harris.

Rev, who was introduced as part of his training, was quite nervous but bravely stepped to the front of his stable to greet some of his new fans.











At the end of the day, our visitors enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea in our onsite Café.

VIP Day organiser Hannah Ghest said, “We really enjoyed welcoming our valued supporters back onsite for another successful VIP Day and would love to see them all again next year.”
