Pablo's Horse Sanctuary

Offering a safe & loving, lifetime home to horses & ponies in need

About Us

Pablo's Horse Sanctuary is a registered horse rescue charity based in Long Clawson, Leicestershire (Charity Commission Registration Number: 1116394) and was founded to ease the suffering of horses and ponies whose owners either could not or would not look after them. Many of our animals have come to us, through no fault of their own, either with various health problems, being elderly or if their owner’s circumstances has changed and they can no longer care for them.

The charity was founded by Mrs Carole Fielding and is named in honour of a little grey pony with a crooked leg, who stole everyone’s heart…. He was a special character

The Sanctuary gradually has gone from strength to strength, and in 2006 became a registered charity. There are currently around 90 horses and ponies. As the charity is run entirely by volunteers, this ensures that 100% of each donation is spent only on the horses and ponies welfare.

Hello Everyone,

As I write this, we are facing challenging and unprecedented times due to COVID-19 (coronavirus).

Following the Prime Minister's announcements about the need for social distancing as part of the coronavirus

response efforts, we have had to cancel all fundraising events for the foreseeable future and subsequently this will have a devastating effect on our ability to fundraise for the horses in our care.


While these are uncertain times, the one thing that does not change is our responsibility to our horses and ponies in our care. Therefore, we are appealing for anyone who is able to consider making a donation to ensure that we have the additional funds we need over the coming months. The truth is that we don't really know what is coming and for how long the restrictions will be in place.


With your help and support we will get through this and hopefully come out the other side.

Stay safe everyone and we hope to be able to see you again soon.


With love and best wishes



The volunteers and especially the very special horses & ponies at the sanctuary.
