The Centre has four stable blocks each with their own colour nets and buckets. This helps to minimise the risk of sickness spreading between the stable blocks

HAPPA Little Ron has now found his forever home with one of our other ponies HAPPA Swifty. They have become the best of friends and are enjoying time out in the field. We love seeing our ponies enjoying their new lives in their forever homes. If you think you could provide a forever home for one of our equines please contact Laura Brown on 01282 455992 or email Laura at

HAPPA Pumpkin found out on 27th November 2016 that she would be expecting in May 2017. This foal slip will help with the first stages of training for her new foal!

According to a recent report by the Office of National Statistics Burnley has the lowest recorded life satisfaction in the UK!
Burnley also appears to be in the top ten places in the UK to find anxiety.
The good news is that according to Franklin Levinson "It has been clinically documented that just being around horses changes human brainwave patterns. We calm down and become more centred and focused when we are with horses,"
A visit to HAPPA seems to be the best thing for everyone in Burnley. Why not plan a visit today!

Firstly complete and download a Foster Friend registration form (these can be downloaded from our website http://www.happa.org.uk/re-homing/temporary-foster-care/

It’s National Inventors Day and to celebrate we thought it would be a good idea to champion the invention of the high healed shoe.
Did you know high-heeled shoes were originally worn by men. As early as the 10th century, many horseback-riding cultures wore heels on their boots and on their shoes, because heels help you stay in the stirrups (which is why cowboy boots have heels).
