Ingatestone, Essex – Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary is delighted to welcome visitors to its Horse Sanctuary for the first time this year on Sunday 3 May 2015. Further dates throughout the 2015 season can be found below:

  • Sunday 7 June
  • Sunday 5 July
  • Sunday 2 August
  • Sunday 6 September
  • Sunday 4 October

Open on each of the above dates from 1pm to 5pm, the Sanctuary offers entertainment for the whole family including competitions and games, music from local band Midnite Blu, delicious refreshments including sandwiches and homemade cakes, lots of stalls and a raffle. Parking is available on-site, with disabled access and dogs are welcome on a lead. Admission will be charged at just £4 per adult, free for children.

Visitors to the Open Days will be able to meet foal Dante [pictured left], found dumped at Remus’ gate in January, a small Welsh pony named Toffee, Dolly the Sheep who escaped from an abattoir and Bramble the horse who has spent her entire 23 years of life tethered, all new to the Sanctuary for 2015.

The Sanctuary is currently providing rehabilitation and care for over 200 animals, including horses, ponies, donkeys, cows, goats, sheep and cats. The Open Days are a vital source of fundraising for the charity which, due to its location on greenbelt land, can only open to the public for a limited number of days each year.

Founder of the Sanctuary, Sue Burton, says, “we love inviting the public to come and visit the Sanctuary, and we always have such a great time showing off our premises and our amazing animals and giving people an insight into the valuable work that we do.”
