Horses

A former racehorse has much to offer after its period of rehabilitation and Greatwood makes every effort to match the right horse with a carer. Greatwood equine management staff carefully vets all applicants to ensure that ultimately both horse and carer have a long and happy life together.

Support Greatwood

Donations and support are the life blood of Greatwood. Our work costs Greatwood over £500,000 annually. You can help Greatwood rescue and care for neglected and ill treated former racehorses and educate and inspire children with special educational needs. See how you can help us.
