Bransby Horses

A rescue centre which is home to more than 400 horses, ponies, and donkeys ready for you to meet.

One of the UK’s largest equine welfare charities, Bransby Horses is a great day out for the whole family with award-winning facilities just 20 minutes by road from Lincoln.

With more than 400 horses, ponies and donkeys to see and a full calendar of events throughout the year, including adoption days, and pony grooming, there is something for everyone.

The beautiful 600 acre site has endless walkways for visitors to explore and a café, gift shop, play park and picnic area. The Horse Sense Room provides a fun educational experience and guided tours take place regularly.

Dogs are welcome to visit (on a lead) and there is a sheltered, outdoor area for dogs when visiting the cafe.

The charity relies completely on public funding to support the rescue and welfare work which aids hundreds of horses every year - donations are gratefully received.
