A jam-packed summer of fun awaits families at Redwings Ada Cole!
Not only can you get up close and cuddly with over 70 adorable rescued horses, ponies and donkeys, but the visitor centre, just outside Harlow, offers a special schedule of activities during the school holidays – and entry is free!
We Love Horses, Ponies and Donkeys!
Starting on 19th July, Redwings Ada Cole will host a series of themed weekends – including We Love Horses, We Love Ponies and We Love Donkeys – celebrating all the unique things we love about their four-legged friends.
Look out for opportunities to join in tours of the centre, enjoy fascinating talks and even have a go at pony grooming!
Join the Club!
The centre’s annual Summer Club also offers the chance for children, aged six to 11, to enjoy fun and educational activities every week during the school holidays.
The Club provides a taster of what it’s like to be a Redwings vet, a field officer, a farrier and even a horsey dentist with hands-on activities, including giving a pony a mini health check, filling tasty haynets and creating enrichment toys for donkeys.
Party with an Adoption Star!
Sponsoring one of Redwings’ Adoption Star horses, ponies and donkeys costs £15 per year.
Every year, each Adoption Star at Redwings Ada Cole is thrown a special party to celebrate their birthday – and everyone is invited!
And don’t forget…
The centre provides acres of peaceful green space and paddocks – perfect if you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy a summer walk. Dogs on leads are welcome too!
Redwings Ada Cole, in Epping Road, Roydon (EN9 2DH), is open every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, 10am to 4pm. For more information, head to www.redwings.org.uk/visiting.
