We are finding it very tough at the moment especially not being able to open due to Covid-19 restrictions and hate asking for donations repeatedly but we can't keep our ponies fed and cared for without your incredible support.

We also had one of our very expensive energisers and battery stolen last night from our Luton field, sometime after 6pm - if you see any on sale in the Luton area going cheap let us know...it could be ours!

We realise times are tough for so many people, businesses and charities alike and are very grateful for anything you can contribute towards helping us help them 🐴🦄

See our Facebook page for the many ways you can help us and thank you.


Founded in the early 2000's yard owner, Julie, rescued several horses who were either deaf, blind or unwanted.

In 2016, Cecil's Horse Sanctuary became a registered charity, caring for over 40 horses, ponies and mules!

We have over 40 horses, ponies and mules at the sanctuary. Unfortunately horse care costs are expensive, therefore the cost of caring for rescued horses, especially those who require specialist treatment and care, can run into many thousands of pounds.

There are a number of ways you can help us...

SPONSOR A PONY - sponsor one of our horses/ pony's and receive a certificate and regular updates.

SHOP - purchase a few gifts from our shop.

DONATING - donate money or suitable items of use.
