Overview

Providing a loving and final home for retired British Police horses. Brantome Police Horses provides care and rehabilitation for many horses and ponies alongside donkeys, dogs, cats, sheep, goats and chickens. We are situated in the heart of the countryside, ten minutes north of Brantome, South West France. Our primary aim is to provide a safe and caring environment for retired British Police Horses, for the rest of their lives. We open to the public on certain afternoons - always a Wednesday afternoon. Other afternoons will be specified on the home page of our website. We enjoy having people to visit and it is used as part of the rehabilitation process for some of our animals. We provide a great tea and there is a lovely gift shop to browse. With your help, we can give these animals the best possible care, for the rest of their lives. "Saving just one horse will not change the world, but surely it will change the world for that one horse."

Apart from the fact that these guys need all the support they can get, the sandwiches, tea and cakes was delightful and you get a tour of the stables and meet the retired police horses.
