Due to the great success of our VIP lambing experience this April, we are back with a new animal experience this May half term. A VIP equine experience.

Experience the magic of Sacrewell this May with our first ever educational VIP equine experience. Throughout the week the livestock team will be welcoming five groups (of up to 6 people) to get hands-on with our equines and assist with their daily routine.

Tasks include:
- Taking the small equines for a walk around the site and then back to their stables
- Brushing and grooming them
- Picking their feet

To ensure the welfare of our equines (and that we are adhering to the five freedoms) we are inviting families and small groups of up to 6 people to book a one-on-one equine experience. The sessions will take place from 3-4pm on Monday 29th May – Friday 2nd June. You will have the chance to get up close with our equines and care for them.

Each day we will accommodate one VIP equine experience, either:
a family of up to 6 people
small group up to 6 people
Children can enjoy this experience, the youngest age able to attend this session would be 6 years old. The minimum age requirement to walk one of the equines alone would be 11 years old. All 6-11 years old would require one adult accompanying each child.

The experience lasts 1 hour, please report to reception on arrival at 3pm and a member of the livestock team will come and greet you.

Please note you will not have access to the play park, play barn or any other facilities at Sacrewell this is purely just a VIP equine experience. Should you wish to spend time at Sacrewell prior to the equine experience please book general admission ticket(s) too. The animal experience ends at 4pm and you will be guided off site.

Sensible footwear must be worn – trainers, wellies, walking boots. Any person(s) wearing sandals, flip-flops or open-toed shoes will not be able to participate.

We hope you can join us!
