I was lucky to spend a day at Bransby and take photos of their beautiful horses. They do wonderful things for horses and donkeys who have been mistreated and the organization runs on donations.

Bransby Horses is dedicated to improving the lives of horses, donkeys and mules. With your support, we are working harder than ever to continue making positive differences to equines whenever we can. Founded in 1968 by Mr Peter Hunt, Bransby Horses is now one of the UK’s largest equine welfare charities, currently caring for more than 400 animals.

We are:

  • Committed to rescue
  • Committed to providing a safe haven
  • Committed to providing support and learning opportunities
  • Committed to developing our people

The Values of the charity are:

To look after the horses with compassion and with understanding of each individual’s needs.
To be open and honest in our dealings with each other, with other welfare
organisations and with the public.
To use the money given to us by our supporters wisely and only in the best
interests of the horses in our care.
To work in partnership and cooperation with other organisations to the benefit of horse welfare.

The Objectives of the charity are:


To prevent and relieve cruelty to horses (which expression shall herein include ponies, mules and donkeys), to protect them from unnecessary suffering and for that purpose to promote knowledge of their proper care and treatment among the public.

To ameliorate the pain and suffering of horses which are for any reason unfit for work or in need of care by the provision maintenance and management of a home of rest or homes of rest, stabling and grazing, or by the provision of suitable work under the supervision of the Society or by arranging for their painless destruction or by any combination of such means aforesaid.
To make grants or such other assistance as is suitable in the circumstances for the prevention of suffering to horses.

Welfare & Rehoming

It is difficult for many to believe that cruelty, neglect and abandonment still exists to such an extent in these modern times; however the need for equine welfare charities such as Bransby Horses is ever-growing. Our sites in Lincolnshire and Herefordshire both have experienced staff who can investigate welfare concerns and we work with local authority inspectors and the RSPCA to address serious cases that may lead to legal action.
