Hidden Gems of Lincolnshire: Bransby Horses

This story is over

Bransby Horses is one of the UK’s largest equine welfare charities which cares for over 400 horses, donkeys and mules and a further 480 are in foster homes. With this in mind, CityX took a tour of the hidden gem of Lincolnshire.

Peter Hunt founded the charity 50 years ago in 1968 to alleviate equine suffering and since then the charity has continued to rescue, rehabilitate, rehome and educate.

With over 600 acres of land, after starting with just eight acres, the site includes a cafe, gift shop, play park and a picnic area along with a number of walkways.

There is also a Horse Sense room which provides a fun educational experience and regular guided tours.

It is open 7 days a week from 10am to 4pm, 362 days a year and is located on Cowdale Lane, Bransby, LN1 2PH.

Admission and parking is free, however a donation is welcome as it helps care for the animals.

There is also an adoption club available for an annual fee of £10, which allows you to adopt an animal that you can regularly visit.
