With the historic Colony Stud, we inherited a rich legacy of human and equine heritage that deserves to be saved for future generations to enjoy.
Fine Fettle Feed Happy Tummy is a feed supplement for horses, mammals, poultry and all other animals. It helps maintain good digestive health and avoid a wide range of infections. It consists of a potenised granular charcoal which is listed as a feed material by the Food Standard Agency. This superb product was developed to help remove toxins from the horse's system naturally but it is also great for performance horses by helping keep them in peak condition. Natural charcoal has been used for thousands of years as an aid to good digestion and a healthy digestive system is the foundation of a strong immune system.
Retraining of Racehorses (RoR) is British Horseracing’s official charity for the welfare of horses who have retired from racing.
Raises funds from within the Racing Industry for the retraining and rehoming of former racehorses
provides a safety net for ‘vulnerable’ former racehorses
Promotes the adaptability and versatility of racehorses to other equestrian activities
Runs and funds a well established programme of competitions and educational events across the country
Provides information for owners and trainers in both the Racing and Equine Industries to assist with the rehoming and retraining of their former racehorses.
The ultimate goal is to maintain a balance between the number of horses leaving Racing and the number of enthusiastic, and suitable, new homes.
The Suffolk Punch Horse is a huge part of the Club’s history and is a significant symbol of Suffolk and the county’s heritage. We proudly support the Suffolk Punch Trust who work to protect the future of the endangered breed, safeguarding Suffolk’s unique rural history and we are delighted that they have named their newest foal after Town mascot Bluey.
