Sussex Horse Rescue Centre last open day of the year.

The Sussex Horse Rescue Trust in Uckfield

Sussex Horse Rescue held it last open day of the season and is now closed to the public until next Spring when it will open on Easter Sunday to visit the equine.

But of course the work goes on in the background looking after dozens of equines who reside there all year round.

The centre was founded in 1964 and 30 years later in 1994 the trust moved to its current home which has 162 acres of land.

Uckfield FM’s Christine Skinner asked Pauline Grant what challenges they have had this year:

All Weather Winter Fest

However, during the winter a very special event WILL be taking place at the farm.

On Saturday the 25th November fun for all the family with the All Weather Winter Fest.
There will be FREE parking and FREE, yes, FREE ENTRY.

The gates will be open to the Walled Garden leading to the Great Hall from 11am to 4pm.

There will be a historial re-enactment, treasure hunts, face painting, archery, food, hot chestnuts and of course pony rides as well.

Duke
Yogi is a retired Household Cavalry Horse who spent most of his life at Hyde Park Barracks in London. He was retired from service due to arthritis and was bought by one of the soldiers who rode and cared for him.   He moved to Uckfield last year.

Sussex Horse Rescue are trying to raise money for more fencing – see their appeal here.
