Merger Announcement

February 05, 2019 (0:00AM)

After many months of hard work and negotiating between the Trustees of SWHP and Redwings, SWHP is able to announce, with immediate effect, the merger with Redwings.  On vacating Coxstone last October all horses and staff moved to the new facility (which will be known as Redwings SWHP) near Chepstow where they have settled in well and are very happy.

The Charity which was founded by Alasdair and Jenny MacGregor MBE almost 50 years ago has been responsible for the rescue of approximately 2,000 equines throughout Wales and the Borders.  In line with the MacGregor's ethos. 'The horses come first' many hundreds have found wonderful homes and lead fulfilling and very happy lives, bringing a huge amount of joy to their keepers.  We are enormously grateful to all our very dedicated supporters for offering homes to our equines which will continue under the stewardship of Redwings SWHP.

Our Charity would not have been able to flourish into the much respected Charity it is today without our generous supporters, dedicated staff and teams of volunteers.  Jenny and Alasdair wanted the Charity to be secure and continue to flourish, in merging with Redwings we hope their wonderful legacy will continue in protecting those abused and neglected equines.

Life moves on, but we are left with very happy memories of our time at Coxstone with the beloved horses and ponies that have come into our care and wish the team the very best of wishes for the future.
