Meet the animals

Help support Our Charity

The Northcote Heavy Horse Centre has been taking in and caring for horses for over 25 years.
All of the horses that come to our sanctuary will remain here for the rest of their lives, we give our passion and love to the horses to give them the best life that they deserve. 

There are many reasons a why a horse might come to live here at the centre and charity, sometimes it's simply due to personal owner circumstances and they can no longer look after them. Other times it's due to former abuse or medical reasons so they come to live with us. We try to give all the horses here a full, active and rewarding life, that includes enrolling them into many of our events including our popular medieval tournaments and other fundraising events. Every horse here has a very different and unique character, many people who come to visit them often fall in love with their personality and can find their nature to be very calming and soothing.

The Heavy Horse Centre operates entirely by donations from the kind generosity of the public, it costs over £150 a day to care for the horses and animals here! All of our staff are volunteers and dedicate so much time to look after these magnificent animals. If you feel like you could help in anyway, please visit our help page.
Each horse has their own story, please visit their individual pages below.
