The Charity was registered in 1974 and the aim was to rescue horses, ponies & donkeys that were being abused. In April 2004 the Trust was taken over by new trustees whose aims are to Rescue, Rehabilitate and Re-home wherever possible.
As well as rescuing horses, Hope Pastures hopes to provide an environment where young people can learn directly about caring for horses in a natural setting, this interaction helps educate young people about animal welfare and social responsibility. Whether by visiting our web site or directly meeting the animals at our sanctuary, we hope to foster an environment where learning and understanding can take place. It is our hope that in doing this, we will help nurture a generation that values the natural world around us and seeks to protect the environment and the animals we share this planet with.
