The Whole Horse Weekend

On Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th June, Rowanoak Learning Centre and Livery are holding The Whole Horse Weekend in aid of HorseWorld. This is a weekend of demonstrations, stalls, a dog show and lots, lots more.

This year’s Welsh National Horse Agility Championships are also being held over the weekend and horse owners will also have a chance to have a go with their own horses. Organiser Nick Sanders explains "This is going to be a great fun weekend. Demonstrations will include clicker training, saddlechariots, equine physio and massage, dog behaviour, shiatsu and much more. Camping is available and there will also be a party around the fire on the Saturday night with live music. Come along for a great time and support a leading equine welfare charity" Camping to be booked in advance by calling Nick on 07870 765018.

HorseWorld will also be there to talk about their rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming work and will bring several of their ponies along for you to meet. The equine welfare charity is responsible for the care of nearly 500 equines. They currently care for 140 horses, ponies and donkeys on HorseWorld’s two adjacent farms in Bristol. Many of these are in various stages of rehabilitation. There are a further 300 animals placed in carefully monitored loan homes in and around the South-West.

HorseWorld’s Fundraising and Communications Assistant, Amy Punter has rehomed a rescued HorseWorld pony and will be bringing him along to The Whole Horse Weekend to show how rewarding it can be to work with a rescued animal. "We are grateful to Nick and his wife Pam for organising this event to benefit HorseWorld. Every penny raised for the charity will help to give neglected, abused and unwanted animals the chance for a safe and happy future"
