Rescuing and re-homing equines since 1974

Visit us


We’re open every day (365 days a year) between 10am and 3pm and the animals love to meet new people!

We have lots of horses, ponies and donkeys on site for you to meet and we run a number of fun events, including our Spring  Fayre and our very popular Summer Fun Dog Show. We also offer activities throughout the year, with Pony Days and Pony Pampering sessions in the school holidays, as well as hosting visiting groups and Birthday Parties. You can find out more about upcoming events by visiting our Diary of Events Page.

Our Visitor Centre is open at weekends and bank holidays and will also be open  with tea, coffee, soft drinks and refreshments, as well as information, activities and Hope Pastures’ goods and gifts.

The Visitor Centre and yard are wheelchair friendly and we have disabled facilities.

We welcome dogs on leads.

We’re very proud to say that Hope Pastures has been awarded a certificate of excellence by TripAdvisor

It’s FREE to visit but we rely completely on donations to support our rescue work, so these are gratefully received when you visit, no matter how small.

Weetwood Lane


LS16 5PH

It’s easy to find us by car – we’re on the North Leeds ring road at the Adel/Weetwood traffic lights. The postcode LS16 5PH will get you here via satnav.

By bus – the No 28 from the city centre stops at the top of our fields, or just over the ring road and the No 8 and No 1 stops near Weetwood Hall on the Otley Road, which is a 5-7 minute walk away. The No 9 around the ring road stops opposite us.

On foot – we’re at the bottom of Weetwood Lane, at the ring road end.
