Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary

RCN 1134951, Ingatestone

Remus Horse Sanctuary aims to provide lifetime help, care and attention for horses, ponies, donkeys and other large animals; advance the education of the public in the proper care and treatment of equines; advise owners on the care of their animals; help to fight the ever increasing rise in cruelty to animals and continue to work with other similar minded organisations.

Sue Burton founded the Sanctuary in 1983 following the plight of the horses on Rainham Marshes in Rainham, Essex, where over 100 horses were left on the bleak marshland.  As the water inlets flooded, they became cut off resulting in 13 horses dying in the most awful conditions.

The Sanctuary provides a safe environment for these animals that have been victims of physical and mental abuse, whether because of ignorance or malicious intent.

All of the animals here at the Sanctuary have been rescued. Our work is similar to that of a hospice – we give the animals the very best of care. 

We help the younger ones to recover and to develop into happy adults and the older ones to rest and recuperate. 

Nothing is asked of our animals at all – they are just loved and cared for. Holistic therapies also play a big part at the Sanctuary.
