Open Days

The day starts early for all our volunteers, helpers, horse workers and the sound engineers as well as all the stall holders who come to help support us. Weeks before hand we were all busy getting the showground ready for the annual event. Horse and ponies all have to be seen by Corinne to make sure they are all in top form for the show. Costumes ordered and fitted for this years characters. Then this year is still under rebate. So much work has gone into the production of it. We are proud to say we do our best to raise funds for our horses.

Parkgate Show

Our showground in on Boathouse Lane close to the plant centre. You can drive in and park totally free, we have a traffic officer on duty to help you park. Next to the car park is the showground entrance. This year we have decided to keep family costs down by only asking for £2.50 admission for adults and 50P for children over 5yrs. A great family day out for about a FIVER. show info

The sanctuary continues to exist purely by sponsors, public funding and our own all year fundraising.

Dog Show

This is always a most popular event in our calendar. It does make a pleasant change for us to deal with dogs instead of ponies. We have two sponsors this year, Sharon from Trophy Pet Food Wirral and Andy from Paws in Nature. They will be on hand both days to help with any enquiries you may have regarding your pets.

There is so much going on its hard to put it all in this page. I will add the main items below for you.
