Sweet-natured Bess is learning to trust again at Glenda Spooner Farm.
Glenda Spooner Farm, Somerset
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Glenda Spooner Farm will be closed to visitors the weekend of 7-8 March. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you, and hope that you will visit us another day.
Come visit World Horse Welfare's Glenda Spooner Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Somerton where we care for and rehabilitate around 65 horses and ponies at any one time - and find them loving new homes.
Things to do at Glenda Spooner Farm:
Meet the horses
Why not come to Glenda Spooner Farm to see some of the horses and ponies we have in our care? You could even take a guided tour of the stables and find out more about the work that we do and go behind the scenes with the grooms. You might even get the chance to meet our adoption horse, Bess! Additionally, why not take a walk around the paddocks and enjoy the wild flowers and beautiful views over the Somerset Levels?
You might even find a horse or pony that you would like to rehome!
Take a break and have a cuppa!
The farm serves hot and cold drinks and has a range of merchandise available.
Due to development work, Glenda Spooner Farm is currently not open on Wednesdays. The farm is still open on Saturdays and Sundays from 2pm until 4pm. You can find out more about this expansion work and why it is so important by watching this video:
