Get up close and cuddly with friendly horses and donkeys, hear their stories and find out more about our work at Redwings Horse Sanctuary Oxhill, Warwickshire. So whether you’re daft about donkeys, mad for mules or can’t resist a cuddle with Shetlands and Shires, a visit to Redwings is a must. And don’t forget, entry is FREE!
We believe that every horse, pony, donkey at mule has the right to a happy and healthy life, free of fear and neglect. We rescue abandoned, mistreated and neglected horses and donkeys from across the UK, giving them a safe place to live and providing essential veterinary treatment, rehabilitation and lifelong care.
Redwings Oxhill is home to almost 90 rescued horses, ponies and donkeys, including the most friendly group of cobs known as “The Breakfast Club” because they’re all named after breakfast items!
Our centre’s staff offer regular ‘Walk and Talk’ tours where you can meet residents large and small – from impressive Shire Major (and his equally giant field mates) to mischievous miniature Shetland Wensley – and our cafe offers tasty refreshments, while the shop has a range of tempting gifts, homewares and souvenirs.
Open all year round, every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday 10am to 4pm (closed Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays). Entry is completely free!

All proceeds go towards funding the work of the Sanctuary. That means every time you buy something to eat, you are helping to keep our horses and donkeys fed too. What a great excuse to treat yourself to a piece of cake or an extra cup of tea!
