HELPING THEM CAN HELP YOU

 

Since 1976 we have rescued, rehabilitated and cared for horses ponies and donkeys including our local Dartmoor ponies. 

 

Since 1993 we have always taken in when asked retired Police horses from the Metropolitan Police or Avon & Somerset.  These horses have come to the end of their working lives for one reason or another and we provide them with a safe and forever future. They are now away from the stresses of Police life in a wonderful location on the edge of Dartmoor.  

 

This amazing place provides a haven of tranquility and we welcome visitors who may also need a little help and support to come and enjoy time with our horses and ponies.  

Information:  All funds to keep these animals have to be raised by ourselves and supporters of DHAPS and BPH - The Police DO NOT have the resources to look after their retired horses.

 

Every animal can give something back.  So in reality helping them can also help us
