Visit Us

Bransby Horses is an equine rescue and welfare charity based just a few miles north of Lincoln. We have been rescuing, rehabilitating, rehoming and providing sanctuary care for equines in need since 1968 when our founder, Peter Hunt, arrived from London with his rescued mare, Sally. He purchased a modest amount of land here in Bransby village and his vision grew in to the charity we are today. We are proud to be able to share this with you and invite you to meet many of our equine residents from horses and ponies to donkeys and mules.

We welcome thousands of visitors each year who enjoy meeting our four-legged residents and exploring miles of picturesque walkways. Bransby Horses is perfect for a family day out, picnic venue, meeting place and eatery, serving breakfast, lunch and light refreshments. Whilst we do not charge an entry fee, we appreciate donations to support our vital welfare work.
