This is a working stables. The horses are exercised and demonstrate the jobs they can do. They are beautiful animals. There are Guinea pigs, ducks, hens, goats, sheep and shetland ponies not to forget the pigs and a cow. An enjoyable time .

My husband and I went for a quick look at the horses - and ended up staying for 4 hours, because there’s so much to do. There are lots of paddocks housing mares with foals, stallions or geldings, mostly Suffolk Punches but some other rescue horses too. It’s a beautiful walk

We visited today and were more than happy to pay the entrance fee in order to support the continuation of these beautiful and amazing horses. We were,however, saddened by the electric fences round the fields which stopped the horses from coming anywhere near us and reduced them

There are always horses in the stable where you can get close up and hands on with the horses so I am sorry you missed this. The electric fences do not stop the horses coming up to the fence, they know how close they can come and will put their noses over so you can snuggle up and stroke them, but sometimes they want their own space and so will be in the middle of the paddock. The electric fences are absolutely vital as horses have a tendency to lean against a fence or rub up against it for a scratch and with a Suffolk weighing over one tonne they easily break the fence rails without even noticing! As you can imagine the horse can then escape, hurt itself or cause a risk to other horses and the public. I hope that explains why we use electric fences and I hope that you will be able to come back another time to meet the horses.

I went with son and his two children and was quite disappointed in the whole area. The best thing was the trip round the trust, we did walk for a while but the horses were mostly at the far side of the field so a bit of a waste. Would not go again nor recommend it.

We're sorry you didn't enjoy your visit as much as we would like, it sounds like you missed out on meeting the horses in the stable and did not know about all the different things on. Our reception volunteers are always happy to help and point out where things are etc.

I visited the Suffolk Pinch trust with my 6 years old and 4 year old and we had a lovely day. Entry costs are low compared to a lot of family attractions. We had a tractor and trailer ride and the groom told us lots about the animals on the farm. There is a small children’s
