Pony Days Return to Remus Horse Sanctuary
Remus Horse Sanctuary’s much-loved Pony Days for children will be returning during the school holiday periods in 2018 as follows:
- Wednesday 11 April
- Wednesday 30 May
- Wednesday 1 August
- Wednesday 15 August
- Wednesday 29 August
- Wednesday 24 October
Remus Pony Days are a fun and educational day for a child, they will learn how to care for a pony and the responsibilities that come with it.
Priced at just £45 per child and taking place only on selected dates, the Pony Days are suitable for boys and girls aged 10 years and over and will take place from 11am until approximately 4pm.
Places are limited to just six children per date and bookings can be made online via the website at www.remussanctuary.org or by contacting the Sanctuary on tel: 01277 356191. Children will need to bring a packed lunch and refreshments for the day.
For anyone thinking of getting a pony or horse for their child or for those who just love being around horses, this is the perfect day.
Each day, children attending will be ‘loaned’ a pony, to make up its feed, be taught how to groom and turn it out into the field, shown how to clean out the pony’s stable and make a nice new bed for him or her to come back into later. There’ll also be lots of tips, information and fun throughout the day.
Events and fundraising play a vital part in raising much-needed funds to keep the Sanctuary open and Sue Burton, Founder, says, “We’re always delighted to welcome children and horse lovers to the Sanctuary for our Pony Days. The work we do here is vital and our Pony Days are both great fun and a great way of educating children on animal welfare”.

Remus Events for You and Your Family
Here at Remus we have been busy planning our new events for 2017 and are pleased to announce a series of new dates to entertain and educate you and your families.
Kids’ Activity Days
Our kids’ activity days are planned around the school holiday terms and will entertain your children for a day whilst you’re at work or doing something else with your time. Boys and girls between the ages of 7 and 11 years are welcome and the day will include a tour of the Sanctuary meeting our furry residents, and many craft making activities such as card making, mug decorating, quizzes, scrap-booking and plenty more! Rest assured your child would be fully supervised and enjoy a fun day out in the countryside.
Our next activity day is Wednesday 15 February – click here to book.
Children’s Pony Days
Our pony days for your children are always great fun and everyone has a marvellous time! Suitable for children aged 9 years and over, boys and girls, they are a way to introduce your children to animals and animal welfare in a safe and secure environment. If they are particularly interested in ponies, horses, would like to learn to ride and perhaps hope to have their own horse at some point in the future, then this will be a great introduction! Plus, they get to spend the day with like-minded enthusiasts. What’s not to love!
Our next pony day is Wednesday 12 April – click here to book.
We are proud to be one of the few Sanctuaries that embrace holistic care and therapies as part of our every-day ethos. As such, we try to plan several educational workshops throughout the year on subjects such as elderly horse care, aromatherapy, shiatsu and reiki etc.
Our next workshop is Sunday 23 April – click here to book.

Our Open Days at the Sanctuary are the highlight of the calendar year and an opportunity for us to show case what we do to the public.
