Rescuing and re-homing equines since 1974

Welcome to Hope Pastures

Hope Pastures uses your donations to prevent suffering and to improve and save lives. Thanks to your support we rescue, rehabilitate and re-home horses, ponies and donkeys in need and give people the chance to meet these animals and learn about them and how to look after them.Because we're a small charity with few 'overheads,' 95p of every £1 you donate goes directly to help the animals.
