Living Legends is modelled closely on the Home of Rest for Horses in the United Kingdom where they aim to support equine research, education and training to benefit horses of all ages and breeds. Special emphasis, however, is given to the care of older horses

This is home to several of our most loved retired racehorses, including .Fields of Omagh, Might and Power, Silent Witness, Better Loosen Up, Rogan Josh, Brew, Paris Lane, Efficient, Who Shot The Barman (NZ), Redkirk Warrior (GB) and Peniaphobia (IRE). During the tour you will have the opportunity to feed and pat the horses.
