Greatwood a recognised racehorse welfare charity Charity number: 1117322
Greatwood is a recognised racehorse welfare charity that has influenced the lives of hundreds of former racehorses.
Rehoming a Horse
Greatwood is looking for knowledgeable caring people (min age 18 years) with the experience, facilities and commitment essential to successfully re-home a rehabilitated ex-racehorse. These horses have much to offer after their periods of rehabilitation and Greatwood makes every effort to match the right horse with a carer. Visit our website for more detailed information.
Greatwood also provides a fulfilling futures for former racehorses and children with special educational needs through their interaction in unique programmes of rehabilitation and education in a secure and caring environment.
Horse Power is an exciting and unique programme, where children with special educational needs learn life skills through interaction with the horses, that for whatever reason, cannot be rehomed.
We would love to rehabiliate and rehome all the horses that come into our care, but many have injuries or other issues that prevent them being rehomed as a ridden horse or companion. Those horses remain in our Sanctuary at Greatwood for the remainder of their lives and if assessed as suitable go on to have a second career in helping our visiting children with special educational needs.
If you think you can help Greatwood in any way either by donating your time, or money, re-homeing a racehorse or helping us with your expertise please do not hesitate to contact us by phone, email, snail mail or any other means you can think of or visit our website (see the link below) for more information.
