Our Open Afternoons have finished for 2017 but we have many fundraising ideas for the winter months.
The Open Afternoons will resume again in 2018 at Easter time.
The afternoon starts at 3pm with a short multi media presentation about the horses and their previous lives in the Police Force, followed by a tour of our yard, where you have the chance to meet some of the horses and hear more about them.
Following the tour, we then serve a traditional English Cream Tea, which includes cakes and scones, made fresh on the day by ourselves and served with real clotted cream and jam, along with other refreshments. We now also offer gluten free cakes for anyone suffering from a dietary restriction, although we do request that you let us know in advance if this is required.
For visitors that have previously visited and would prefer to participate solely in the cream tea, simply inform us when booking and we will happily welcome you at 4pm.
During your visit, you will also be able to browse the gifts we have on offer in our Summer House gift shop and you are also welcome to pay a visit to our exhibition Gallery, where our local artists showcase their work throughout the summer.
The afternoon is guaranteed to be enjoyable, come rain or shine and all profits raised are given directly to the horses, for their food, hay and veterinary bills, amongst other expenses.
The price for the afternoon is a requested donation of 12 euros for adults and 8 euros for children under the age of ten. We do request that all attendance is booked in advance, whether by phone, email, or simply through a Facebook message. This is merely so that we can be aware of numbers for the day and can therefore prepare to have enough volunteers on hand, to assist in serving and equally so that we can be assured to bake the right amount of cakes!
