What we do
The Leinster Horse & Pony Rescue (L.H.P.R.) is a voluntary organisation dedicated to the welfare of horses and ponies in Leinster. L.H.P.R rescue, rehabilitate and rehome equines that have been subject to abuse, neglect, abandonment and deprivation. 

We respond to emergency calls regarding injured or distressed horses and ponies. We also carry out talks and presentations on responsible horse ownership and horse welfare to schools and colleges.

From nothing has grown this beautiful organisation. We rescue, rehabilitate, re-train and re-home Ireland's forgotten horses and ponies.

The Three R's we pride ourselves in!




We are what we are - a rescue centre for sick, injured and neglected horses and ponies. We will assist in any donkey emergency as it arises also. We are currently based on a rented farm in Trim County Meath. Our team of welfare officers work on the frontline responding to calls for help!
We pride ourselves in our rehabilitation programme. We feel our rehab programme is like no other rescues. We give 5 star individual attention to every animal that passes through our gates. Our rehab programme is headed up by our group of volunteers and is broken down into three stages.
We are proud of our ''active'' rehoming scheme. Our aim is to rehome every equine that passes through the gates of LHPR! In most cases all equines have been fully rehabilitated.
Rehoming is a hugely rewarding experience.

Our Mission Statement
Here at L.H.P.R, we aim to relieve the unnecessary suffering of horses and ponies in need of care and attention in Leinster.

We pledge to provide our animals with sheltered accommodation, and the highest standard of nutritional, medical and emotional care.

We promise to promote the humane care and behaviour towards horses and ponies and all other animals, through information and education in animal welfare and prevention of cruelty and suffering towards animals.

We believe animals deserve to be born with dignity and when the times comes to die with dignity. While we operate a no kill policy, we do have to be realistic and humane and sometimes have to make the difficult decision to put an animal to sleep if its suffering, sick or injured beyond veterinary help.
