Welcome to Hoofbeats


Our Passion is for the rehabilitation, sanctuary and wellbeing of equines through Holistic Care, Natural Therapy and Extraordinary Communication creating the opportunity for their healthy, fulfilling and peaceful future.  We are a registered UK Charity, and our mission statement is;

We offer a safe, equine friendly centre for recovery, retraining and rehoming of Horses and Ponies.  Our primary aim is to re-home our friends with suitable human companions on a permanent loan basis off-site (typically in the south-west of the UK).

Formed and founded originally in 2000 by Sharon Vieira,  Hoofbeats is a registered UK Charity, (number 1133116). We have re-homed over 100 horses in the first 13 years of operation. We are totally dependant on donations, good-will and assistance from the general public and our supporters for our existence.  As always we thank our volunteers, patrons, sharers and loaners for their patronage. Every penny of their spend with us (money or time) is devoted totally to the welfare of our animals.
