Our Purpose Is To:
  • Assist people who can no longer care for their horses for a variety of reasons and find them new homes.

  • Work with horses that have physical, mental or behavioural difficulties to rehabilitate them and in many cases work towards a completely different working life.

  • Retrain ex-racehorses to have a differing career post racing.

  • Work with other welfare centres to assist in accepting welfare cases as required.

  • Remain in contact to oversee every horse we rehome for life.


Who We Are

Tracy Cooper, Chair of Trustees founded the Charity with 2 others,  after the equine training company she owned  had been given a number of horses who needed rehabilitation ; both physically and mentally. The number of horses they were given became significant and necessitated more funding than they could offer.


HRH was born and since then has built a great reputation for a sympathetic and kind approach allowing horses firstly to adjust and develop in their own time. When a horse is ready to move on from the Centre it is carefully matched to a new home to ensure a happy outcome for horse and adopter.
