Overview

The Horse Trust, Home of Rest for Horses is set in 200 acres of beautiful Chiltern countryside between High Wycombe and Aylesbury, just outside Princes Risborough. Our Home of Rest for Horses is at the heart of our charity. It is here that we care for over 100 retired and rescued horses, ponies and donkeys. Visit us to see our retired working horses - from the Police and Military who have spent a lifetime serving our country or communities, to the ponies who have helped improve the lives of disabled or disadvantaged children. Meet the rescued horses, ponies and donkeys who have found sanctuary with us after suffering from cruelty or neglect. Visit our museum to find out how we helped War Horses in World War 1, take a walk around the farm to see the horses grazing in their fields or visit our Black Beauty Tea Room and gift shop to enjoy a cream tea. We look forward to meeting you!

Originally visited for open air cinema of beauty and beast with my friends and family and went back the following week - great for children especially those who love horses and they often hold events and arts and crafts on site

Found The Horse Trust as a happy coincidence. Please visit to see the beautiful horses and Ponies, now retired,after years of service with Police and cavalry. We enjoyed a sunny, almost magical, afternoon in Late April visiting the horses followed by tea and lemon drizzle...More

These beautiful horses are all ex-working giants and are here for a well deserved retirement. Read about their working lives and get to give them a pat (if they're not already fed up of us humans telling them how gorgeous they are!). Good value for...More
