Penny Farm home for rescued horses and ponies
Penny Farm opened in 2001 and is home to around 55 rescued horses and ponies. It is part of the International League for the Protection of Horses (ILPH)
Located in Blackpool, it offers holiday makers a day out with a difference and provides a permanent haven of peace and tranquility for local residents.

Penny farm is open all year except Christmas Day to New Years Day. It is open on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays from 11am to 4pm.
Penny Farm has a recently refurbished Coffee Shop and a small selection of ILPH souvenirs are available from the Gift Shop - so spending is guilt free as all profits go directly to fund the work of the ILPH!
Information from the ILPH
Every day thousands of horses around the world suffer.
Some travel for days in overcrowded lorries to slaughter, some work until they drop to feed their poverty-stricken Third World owner's families, some starve through uncaring neglect in an English shed.
Operating internationally, the ILPH is one of the world's leading equine welfare charities and improves the lives of many of these horses.
Their political campaigners, international training teams, UK Field Officers and Rehabilitation Centres are all working towards a world where the horse is used but never abused.
They are a caring and practical organisation which relies totally on the support of the general public to continue our work.
Penny Farm is a great free family attraction on the outskirts of Blackpool.
