Most of our rescues have suffered a difficult life by the time we meet and wear many scars to tell their story. Regardless of their experiences before coming to Ninovan, they greet our visitors with open hearts. Over the years, we have come to realise that real change will only come through education.
We work closely with our local school programs and are happy to offer internships. If you are interested in bringing your students to Ninovan, please get in touch! CONTACT US
Raising awareness about the needs of equines through education is our best shot at raising the standard for quality of life. We have had many islanders and visitors at Ninovan of all ages, some have never had the opportunity to see a horse up close yet alone- touch one. Our visitors can pet and groom our animals, while learning about safety around horses. We help them to overcome any fears, to relax around these amazing creatures and to recognise when a horse or donkey is in need, and inform them how to get help.
Ninovan works with the authorities on the island to promote changes to law and practice.
We work closely with our local Farrier, Veterinarian and teachers, as well as other horse and donkey - lovers here on our Island as well as on the main land.

"Being the change" comes down to a very basic decision: Accept a situation for what it is and choose to do nothing, or decide to stand up for those who can not stand up for themselves. All creatures big and small deserve to be treated with Love & Respect.

Help us plan our year by sponsoring one of our rescues on a monthly basis. Get together with friends or co-workers and sponsor a rescue together! Our average cost per horse per month is 75€. Sponsorship gives us peace of mind so we can focus on our next steps towards improving the lives of all equines on our island.
