Why should I visit Shy Lowen Horse and Pony Sanctuary?

Shy Lowen is an animal sanctuary for Horses and Ponies. By visiting the sanctuary and contributing, you are helping the effort to provide a safe haven for these beautiful animals!

All of the horses and ponies at the sanctuary are cared for and trained by local children. Many of which had never had close contact with a horse before! They are soon on their way to building the relationships of trust that are the cornerstone of the Sanctuary’s training. The more experienced children help the younger ones teach the horses to overcome their fears and learn the skills needed to be ridden horses that are ready for new homes! If this is not possible, worry not, as they will continue to be cared for at the Sanctuary!

The horses themselves are also extraordinary teachers! They don’t care about what kind of upbringing you have had or what clothes you wear. The horses at the Sanctuary help kids find that person inside! The horses teach them about self-worth, trust and confidence!

There are also ridden and companion horses at the Sanctuary that are available for a long term loan!

  • Equine Assisted Therapy is available
  • The riding school is available for £9 half-hour sessions or £15 for 1-hour sessions
  • Pony days and experiences from £5

Ice Age

12 - 18 August, 2022
There's a faint air of cynicism in this story of a morose mammoth, a bumbling sloth and a wily tiger who join forces, despite all their better instincts, to return a human baby to his father. As the planet gets colder, they head in the opposite direction of the animal migration, to battle snowdrifts, volcanoes, ice caves and predators, eventually delivering their charge. The animators try desperately to make you fall in love with this unlikely band of creatures, to make you see the good hearts beneath the frosty exteriors, but they don't deliver that all important charm, wit, flair and imagination.

12 - 18 August, 2022

Shrek 2

12 - 16 August, 2022
Patchy, episodic sequel to DreamWorks' inspired, satirical riff on Disney fairy tales, this fails to replicate the magic of the original. Back from honeymoon, swamp-dwelling Shrek and his bride, Princess Fiona are invited to visit his in-laws, King Harold and Queen Lillian, rulers of the kingdom of Far Far Away. Zorro-like assassin Puss in Boots (Banderas) is hired to do away with the ogre interloper and restore the natural order. But the plotters have underestimated Fiona's love, Shrek's sense of self-worth and the loyalty of their asinine sidekick, Donkey (Murphy). More contrived than clever, the in-jokey movie parodies are funny but lazy. The slapdash selection of music is often smeared on to disguise the erratic pacing. Nevertheless, the dazzling fairytale ball finale will probably blind viewers to these many imperfections.
