Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary

Winter Hay Appeal

Your support will help keep a horse fed and warm this winter. Not only is hay a nutritious source of food for horses and donkeys, it also acts as a furnace keeping them warm from the inside out - and costs are escalating.

You can help Remus Horse Sanctuary in so many ways…

Welcome to Remus Horse Sanctuary in Ingatestone, Essex! We believe that together, with your help, we can all make a difference and bring an end to horse cruelty. The horse welfare crisis in the UK has been escalating for many years and we want to ensure that, in future, no animal is born to die. We hope you like what you see here and look forward to welcoming you to our family!
