World Horse Welfare Glenda Spooner Farm


Come and visit World Horse Welfare's Glenda Spooner Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre. Located on the outskirts of the ancient, Royal town of Wessex, Somerton, we are situated in the heart of the rural landscape of South Somerset. We care for and rehabilitate around 65 horses and ponies at any one time with the aim to find them loving new homes, and take approximately 100 horses through our doors each year, including those returning from homes. The farm has had a recent re-development and our new facilities will help us rescue and rehabilitate even more horses.

Things to do at Glenda Spooner Farm:

Meet the horses

Come and meet some of the horses and ponies we have in our care. You can take a guided tour of the stables and find out more about the work that we do behind the scenes. Why not take a trek around the farm following one of our great farm walks? Remember to look out for our adoption horse, May, who will be very pleased to meet you. The farm sits in 220 acres of unspoilt countryside and there are many opportunities to spot the wildlife around our lake. You can admire the view from the top of the farm across the Somerset Levels or just take a stroll around our paddock trail and meet some of the ponies.

You might even find a horse or pony that you would like to rehome!
