AHP - SS - Intro to Equine Care 13/08/2020
2020 has been a strange year for us at the sanctuary but we have finally felt a little normalcy (with restrictions in place) this week when we reopened for our summer scheme program - partially sponsored by Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council.
This is some of the photos from the session on Thursday the 13th of August 2020.
Any parents/guardians who ticked photo consent should have received their personal photos of the children in attendance. Any issues please email
Blackie, Brock, Blain, Tilly, all took part in grooming, leading, and even a team relay race - of which Brock's team won with a sleepy blackie a close second! While Oliver, Olive, Tinny, and Lucy took part a little later in the day when we all took a walk up the lane to the paddock for our picnic.
We had hoped to have some small animal time but due to restrictions for COVID and our own current restrictions due to Cat Flu we spent all the time with the ponies.
We hope everyone had fun and learned something - even if it is that our AHP coordinator is a little crazy and pulls silly faces a lot!
Thank you to our volunteers who allow us to run these programs safely and helping keep our costs low to allow for the maximum amount of booking funds go directly into the animal's care costs.
