We are proving a popular destination for dogs – and their owners – with almost one and half thousand four legged visitors coming to see us in the last six months.
As one of the UK’s largest horse sanctuaries and leading equine welfare charities near Lincoln, we welcome visitors – and their dogs – to walk around our picturesque site year round, for free.
With an equally canine friendly café it turns out we also make an ideal place to take dogs on leads with ‘Pupaccinos’ on the menu and a designated seating area for woofers and their families.
One supporter posted her recommendation on our Facebook page and said: “This is my favourite place to visit with my dog. I love seeing the donkeys and ponies and the “dog friendly” cafe space is amazing.”
And it’s not just pet dogs who like to bring their owners to our 600 acre site, puppy trainers like to visit to introduce their young dogs to equines and the sites and sounds of our popular centre.
Another recent visitor posted: “Love this (Bransby Horses), it’s a good place to take Guide Dog puppies to socialise and get used to horses. And we are always made welcome.”
Bransby Horses was founded in 1968 by Mr Peter Hunt to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome mistreated and neglected horses, ponies, donkeys and mules.
Since then we have grown considerably and our popular Visitor Centre has been open now for over 10 years.
We are open Wednesday to Sunday from 10am to 4pm and seven days a week during the Lincolnshire school holidays, for families to visit and see some of the equines we help.
We are also free to visit and with miles of pushchair and wheelchair friendly walkways to navigate, it’s a place worth sniffing out.
