For over 25 years the Northcote Heavy Horse Centre has been caring for horses of all sizes from all different backgrounds in a loving & forever home. Our Sanctuary is funded solely by donations & ran entirely by volunteers but we need your help to keep carrying on being able to care for these gentle giants.

Special Themed Events

Our action packed Medieval Tournament will return in May 2016! You'll get to see our knights in armour competing for your support! You'll get to see Birds of Prey demonstrations by Lincoln Castle falconer Derek Tindall and also other demonstrations such as Equestrian Vaulting and Dog Displays. We'll have stalls, games and food available! 

Guaranteed to be a great day out with the kids when you're in Skegness or Lincolnshire! We're not far from Butlins either!  

Entry is £5.00 for adults and £3.50 for children and OAPS. Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead.

We need your support

The Northcote Heavy Horse Centre is home to horses of all sizes, from heavy horses, shire horses, percheron's, Belgian draft horses, shetland ponies and even a rare breed Suffolk Punch! You can meet all the horses (big and small) on our horses page. Each horse has lots of pictures and some brief information on their breed, history and life. Visit the horses page now!

Our aim is to give all the horses and animals in our care here for a forever and loving home, giving them the best possible life that they deserve. 

We can't do this without your help, we rely solely on donations, fundraising, sales from our shop and the generosity of you & the public.
