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 pony, of no particular breed with a crooked leg, called Pablo.  In the late 1970s Pablo was bought for Carole’s young daughter as a riding pony.

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.

After a challenging year with the intense heat during the summer, we now find ourselves inundated with rain !


Due to flooding in some of our fields we have had to close the fields and move the horses & ponies to the yard, 2 months earlier than usual due to the adverse weather we are all experiencing !


This has meant our hay bills have escalated and we need to ask for your help.

If you can help, we would be very grateful as we have many mouths to feed.


Please donate to our Hay Appeal if you can, donations can be made by cheque to Carole or by Pay Pal here on our website 


Our volunteers are working hard fundraising throughout Leicestershire and beyond, if you see them out and about please say hello.


We are still urgently looking for volunteers to help out with the horses and the daily chores involved with their care, if you can help please call Carole Tel: 077456 28684.


If you have any ideas on how we can raise extra funds, please let us know and if you would like to help us fundraise give Carole a call or message us on our website.

Our volunteers were out in the villages of Hose and Long Clawson last week, collecting with Melton Round Table and Santa for Pablo’s Horse Sanctuary.

It was good fun and helped us raise funds needed going into the winter months. Our thanks to Melton Round Table, for inviting us to join them again this year.
