The International League for the Protection of Horses will be opening its stables in Snetterton, Norfolk, on Monday, 24 August, for a day of family fun.

Entry to Hall Farm is free, and events throughout the day are set to include riding displays, grooming demonstrations and a chance to meet many rescued horses and ponies during guided tours of the centre.

There will also be games, competitions and a second-hand tack stall. For refreshments, a barbecue will be serving up burgers and bangers, and the coffee shop will provide tea and cakes.

Kate Elliot, visitor officer and fun-day organiser, says: “Come and enjoy a different family day out that won’t break the bank. Why not have a go at grooming a pony, or ogle the new adorable Shetland foals Stan and Deano? (pictured). It certainly promises to be a wonderful day out for the whole family.”

Hall Farm is situated on the A11 between Thetford and Attleborough, at the Snetterton interchange. To find the centre, follow the brown tourist signs.
