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!

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

Definitely worth coming here. Great place to visit. If it is a wet day/period, then be there for opening, as there is not much hard standing for cars. On warm days there is plenty of parking. Please educate your children not to run up to...More

Wonderful place with superb horses. The care and love given to these magnificent retired or rescued animals is magnificent. A very worthwhile and moving visit and the grandchildren loved it.
