The Northcote Heavy Horse Centre is a small and unique but extremely dedicated animal welfare charity in Lincolnshire specialising in horses and horse welfare. The centre has been running for over 25 years (opened 1989!) and is entirely funded by the generosity of the public and donations, we receive no major funding. We do everything we can to give the horses and animals in our care the best possible home whilst giving them a rich and rewarding life. Many of the horses come from broken backgrounds, some have even been abused or mistreated and others simply come from owner circumstance where they can no longer be looked after. Some of the horses have medical conditions and require extra special care, sadly even some of the larger UK animal charities turned them down because they were deemed too cost 'ineffective'. We take on the responsibility and give them the love, devotion and respect that they deserve.
