A family run Sanctuary for UK retired Police Horses in France.  Saving just one horse will not change the world but surely it will change the world for that one horse

Welcome to Brantome Police Horses & Friends

Brantome Police Horses provides care and rehabilitation for many horses and ponies alongside, dogs, cats, sheep, goats and chickens.  We are situated in the heart of the Dordogne, South West France and our primary aim is to provide a safe and caring environment for retired Police Horses from the United Kingdom for the rest of their lives.

It costs upwards of 50,000 euros to run the Sanctuary every year, which is funded solely by people visiting and enjoying our Talk/Tour and Cream Tea Afternoons, visitors becoming Members of our Association, our Giftshop - a new venture for us and throughout the year many varied events from music nights, quiz nights, gallery exhibitions and our famous and always well attended Summer Ball. 

With your help we can give these animals the best possible care for the rest of their lives.

Please browse our website and learn about our work,  our animals and the many other facets of life in a busy Animal Sanctuary. 

Would you like to work with us and help care for the animals? If so, please see about becoming a Member or Volunteer.

We hope that you enjoy our website and will like what you see enough to come and visit us on one of Open Afternoons and join us for a Talk/Tour and Cream Tea.  These afternoons happen every Wednesday and Sunday at 3pm but booking is essential as they are popular and all cakes and scones are made on the day.

 Please contact us  if you would like to know more about us and our work.
