Ever Wondered Why We Roadschool? Here’s a Great Example at Bransby Horses in Lincoln

Ever so often on our European Roadschooling Adventure, you find something that really hits the  bullseye! And Bransby Horses certainly did that today! An animal welfare charity close to the beautiful, historic city of Lincoln… the perfect way to spend a day educating the girls… This time on  just how charities work, are created and need our support to succeed in the future.

So who wouldn’t want to support a charity that rescued over 120+ horses in 2016 and are now caring for over 400 horses as they seek to re-home / care for those in their care. So what better opportunity for two horse-loving girls, than a chance to get a behind the scenes tour!! There’s even a chance to support yourself by adopting a horse (but more of that later on!)

But perhaps the best way to tell you the story of our day is through this short video above!

Bransby Horses is one of the largest equine welfare charities in the UK, with a Visitor & Education Centre to inspire! Education is clearly high on their agenda as they hope it will help see an end to abandonment, cruelty and neglect… so there’s plenty of opportunities for local school children to visit and engage in their educational opportunities. So we seized the opportunity to spend some time with Penny Waite (Bransby’s Education Officer) to interview her on just how charities are set up and run.

If you missed the girl’s last chance to interview (this time with a Norwegian Tourist Board in Visit Flam with Betina Hansen) you can catch it here

There’s plenty to do on each visit including ‘hands on’ learning experiences about animal welfare and on-going care… Understand more on grooming and what it takes to care for horses. Interactive demonstrations on handling and behavioural training or even chances to look into careers that link to Bransby such as farriers, veterinary or dentistry!
All of which are great experiences that are exactly what we’ve hoped to achieve as we’ve toured Europe. Attempting to discover a variety of opportunities to give our girls the chance to learn about subjects at first-hand, inspiring them to ask questions and form their own opinions but most importantly to gain the confidence to express them to others.
