World Horse Welfare looks to the Wild West for 10th birthday party

  • World Horse Welfare’s Penny Farm is getting in the party mood on Sunday 19 June with a cowboy-themed tenth anniversary party.

    The Western Equestrian Society will be at the charity’s recovery and rehabilitation Centre near Blackpool on the day to demonstrate Western Riding, and visitors are encourage to dress up in their cowboy best.

    The charity’s Zoe Clifford, said: “We are really looking forward to the event as it should be a fantastic way to celebrate 10 years of us rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming horses.”

    Since June 2001, when Penny Farm was officially opened by World Horse Welfare’s patron, the Princess Royal, 22 foals have been born there and 371 horses have been rehomed.

    Other activities at the tenth birthday part include donkey rides, a bouncy castle, face painting, a cowboy BBQ and games and tours of the yard and chance to meet the horses and ponies.

    The fun takes place from 11am to 4pm.

    Admission is free but there may be a small charge for some of the activities.
