|HorseWorld Visitor Centre
HorseWorld Visitor Centre is set in beautiful Mendip-stone farm buildings on the southern edge of Bristol. HorseWorld was set up in 1952 as a registered charity by a group of volunteers who wanted to save unwanted animals from unnecessary slaughter.
Visitors can meet the animals (selected times only) and ‘Touch & Groom’ in certain areas where you can get up close to some of the miniature Shetlands and Donkeys.
Children must be accompanied by an adult. Visit the on site Stable Door Café and Gift Shop for free.
Visitors can also help the charity by adopting an animal or becoming a member where members will receive a free entry to the Visitor Centre for 12 months, invitations to special events, newsletters, plus discounts on lots of activities.
There are special events throughout the year including: Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Adoption Animals Birthday Party, Activity Weekend, Care for a Pony Days and the Annual Christmas Carol Service, plus more! Visit www.horseworld.org.uk/events/
Concessions are available for Senior Citizens, Students and registered disabled.
There are HorseWorld Welfare Department Tours at neighbouring Keynes Farm, bought by the Society in 1978, with its 170 acres of grazing and stabling facilities concentrating on rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing for around 160 horses, ponies and donkeys. Places are limited on these guided tours and are only suitable for adults and children over 9 years of age.
