Successfully Rehomed!

Succesfully re-homed!After spending 1 year and 9 months here at Hugs Batman & Robin have finally found their new forever home!

Batman & Robin were broken in by Sue-Joy Keeping and before they had even finished their training they were reserved!

They finally moved into their new home on 17th June. The team are so proud of how far they have come and we are so glad they have gone as a pair.

They are now going to spend a life time of being spoilt and they are going to be teaching children how to ride on the beach😱


Paddy & Guinness were saved from Chagford market back in 2017. They have blossomed as a pair and we have always wanted them to be re-homed together and it finally happened!

These two gorgeous boys have found their new forever home up in Surrey.

They are going to be joining a herd of working driving horses and when they reach the right age they will be broken to drive too!

They have an amazing opportunity ahead of them with lots of love, training, knowledge and friends. They certainly landed on their feet the day they were rescued!

Proper Cornish

Proper Cornish

Proper Cornish has recently picked us as their chosen charity of the year.

They have already done some amazing things to help us, including donations of pasty vouchers! However their most recent fundraising event was Bodmin’s Ten Tours! Wow! The Proper Cornish team finished the Bodmin Ten Tors in a fantastic 4 hours 58 minutes – raising an amazing £560 for The Hugs Foundation in the process!

Here they are at the top of Brown Willy. We cannot thank Proper Cornish for all the support! They have also just released that they will be down at Bodmin Asda on Saturday 1st June to collect money for us! How amazing!

As a horse rescue charity we often take in horses that have serious and long term health conditions or in the ‘golden oldies’ categories.
These horses need a lot of care with ongoing vets fees, remedial farriers, regular dental and physiotherapy visits plus feed, hay, bedding … the list is endless!
We are therefore asking for donations to help us, help them.
A regular standing order of just £5 would pay for a bale of hay every month.
Imagine if all our supporters donated?
The Hugs Foundation will always try to help horses that need us, however in order to do this, we do need your help.
You can change the horses future with regular donation.

Pets @ Home – Charity of the Year

Pets @ Home – Charity of the Year

Pets at Home
On Monday 27th May Dude & Huckleberry made a trip down to Pets at Home in Bodmin.

Pets at Home have kindly picked us as their chosen charity of the year. This means people can donate to us via the store when they make a purchase.

e also have a collection point in store where items such as feed, bowls, toys etc can be donated. We are asked to do 8 hours a week of fundraising in store in order to receive the donations. So we thought we would take Dude & Huckleberry for a little visit. We took the 3 mile round trip on foot and the ponies were very behaved!

They even went in the store for a look around!😱. (click the picture above to see the full video).

So remember if you are shopping in Bodmin Pets at Home do not forget to ask about donating to The Hugs Foundation.
