We are a small horse and pony rescue based in Maidstone, Kent. We care for up to 20 horses at any one time, with the aim of not only rescuing but rehabilitating and rehoming (where possible), we also have a small number of equines granted sanctuary with us for varying reasons. We offer a bereavement loan service for those in need of short-medium term loan of companion ponies, with flexible terms and a fast application process. 

We also have a pair of amazing little therapy ponies, who are able to visit nursing homes, hospices and other indoor settings... and a stunning pony who is available for professional media and photograpy projects. 

We are a fully registered charity, having met criteria to register in 2015. To date we have taken in & rehomed over 120 horses, ponies & donkeys. We do not currently receive grants or funding from other sources, and rely solely on our fund raising team, loyal sponsors and supporters and members to help cover our running costs. Every donation, no matter how small is hugely valuable in helping us help horses in need.

Pukka Ponies can assist with abandonment and welfare cases, please contact us for a chat about any concerns you may have, while we do not have any legal power to seize horses we can and will advise, and assist wherever possible. 


Please bear with us, we are developing a fab new website... our old one hadn't been improved since 2017 so it's well overdue. We are adding content as we can - if you have any questions please drop us an email:
