Join The Club!
Young horse fans can enjoy an exciting peek into the world of Redwings Horse Sanctuary this summer when the charity’s annual Summer Club for children returns.
Kicking-off on Friday 26th July, Redwings Caldecott, near Great Yarmouth, will be hosting fun activity sessions for children aged six to 11 every week throughout the school holidays – and bookings are being taken now!
Redwings Caldecott has also extended its opening hours this summer with the centre now open daily right up to Sunday 8th September, providing something for all ages!
The Summer Club will provide 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 rescued pony a mini health check, filling tasty haynets, making comfy stables for poorly horses and creating enrichment toys for donkeys.
There will also be plenty of opportunities to enjoy cuddles with the visitor centre’s adorable four-legged residents, of course.
Andie Vilela, Redwings’ Education and Campaigns Manager, said: “If you’re a budding vet or farrier of the future, or if you just love animals, the Redwings Summer Club is a really exciting opportunity to enjoy an exclusive, hands-on experience with our rescued horses, guided by the people who look after them every day.
“We hope as many children as possible will come along to find out more and have some fun!”
Each 45-minute session costs £3 per child and places fare booked on a first come, first served basis. Parents/guardians can sign up their children at the visitor centre on the day, or book in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

As well as the Summer Club, Redwings Caldecott will also be hosting a schedule of summer activities at the weekends, including meets ‘n’ greets with some of its most characterful rescued residents, fascinating talks and tours, and pony grooming.
Summer activities will run from Friday 19th July to Monday 2nd September – and entry is completely free!
