Retired Horses - Heartbeat Home for Retired Horses

Retired Horses Charity Number 1106722 - The Heartbeat Home for Horses Limited.

Many hundreds of horses every year face an uncertain future when their careers come to an end. They come to us from all walks of equine life; ex-racehorses, riding horses, or ponies just being discarded when their "useful" life is over.

Our Aim

The Heartbeat Home for Horses Limited is a registered charity for retired horses, whose aim is to care for horses who otherwise would face a very uncertain future. Our aim is to provide a lifeline for these needy, homeless animals, allowing them to relax in comfortable surroundings in retirement, with lots of tender loving care.

  • Heartbeat horses are often large, 16hh+ - it can be difficult to find a retirement home for them

  • Heartbeat Horses are NOT re-educated, or re-homed, or adopted

  • Heartbeat Horses retire to enjoy a good quality of life

  • Heartbeat will not put a healthy horse to sleep

  • We need to expand, due to the long waiting list of horses waiting to retire, or worse

  • We have CCTV in the stables, to monitor horses who are unwell


Many of Heartbeat guests would not be alive today, if they had not been able to retire to the Heartbeat Home for Horses.
