Remus Horse Sanctuary in Ingatestone is delighted to open its gates and welcome visitors to the Sanctuary for the first time this year on May 1 2016 from 1pm-5pm. The Sanctuary offers entertainment for the whole family including competitions and games, music from local band Midnite Blu, delicious refreshments including gluten-free 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 and £2 for children.
Visitors to the Open Days will be able to meet seven-month old foal Charlie who was cruelly wrenched from his mum in 2015 when his owners simply had no use for him, Dante who was dumped at the Sanctuary’s gates again in 2015 and Jess and Bracken, born at the Sanctuary in 2014 to rescued, blind mares, Grace and Hollie.
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 learn more about what we do. We always have such a great time showing off our facilities and our amazing animals and giving people an insight into the valuable work that we do.’
