Hope Pastures’ Experience

The best way to get to know our animals, a Hope Pastures’ Experience is for 1 to 2 people (or children). It includes a personal ‘behind the scenes’ tour of the sanctuary, plus ‘hands on time’ grooming one of the animals – make sure you bring your camera, as a photo of you and your pony is sure to be ‘a must have’. Most Experiences run for about an hour, but we can organise longer if you wish.
