Visit to Mane Chance Sanctuary

17th September 2019, 11:00 - 14:00

Mane Chance Sanctuary was registered as a charity in 2011. In August of that year the actress Jenny Seagrove (who is the founding trustee) heard her friend who she had been supporting had gone broke. Within a month she managed to get Mane Chance Sanctuary registered as a charity. The charity was allowed to use Monkshatch Garden Farm in Compton temporarily. In May 2012 the farm was being sold and, with some very hard work and gentle persuasion, in September the charity managed to purchase the farm.

Mane Chance operates a system of unique care in the equine community. They also believe passionately that horses and humans can benefit in equal measure emotionally. They have a very special relationship with Shooting Star Chase, a hospice for children in Guildford with life limiting illnesses. The Sanctuary’s aims are to relieve suffering of animals, in particular equines, and for children who are vulnerable or suffer from physical and/or mental disability utilising managed therapeutic work with equines to provide help and relief. We will learn all about this very special place on our private visit.  On arrival we will have tea/coffee together with some home-made cakes.

We will then have a guided tour of the Sanctuary showing us their horses and ponies and describing their philosophy and how they are helping children with various difficulties and the benefits to both the horses and the children and their vision for the future.

Once the tour has completed we will have a picnic lunch in their orchard weather permitting or if not in their barn. After, there will be time for you to meet the horses and spend time with them.

It is not practical to bring dogs on this day and the event is not designed/suitable for children. This event is not suitable for members with mobility difficulties as the Sanctuary does not have proper footpaths.

The cost will be £9.00 per member and £10.50 for non-members. The cost includes all the refreshments and lunch and the tour. We are also making a donation to the Sanctuary which is also included in the overall price.

Booking is essential. If you would like to join us would you please complete and return the attached slip to arrive at Warren Farm Barns before 13th September 2019.
