Welcome to the webpage of Calan Horse Sanctuary.

In operation since 2005, the sanctuary is based in Highbury two hours southeast of Perth, Western Australia. The equine residents are a mixture of rescued, retired and unwanted animals.

In all aspects of equine care, whether rescued or retired, CALAN HORSE SANCTUARY subscribes and follows the wonderful approach of Carlos Tabernaberri at  www.whisperingacres.com.au

Our challenge has been to alter their flat dull eyes due to neglect and mistreatment, to eyes that resemble the one in the photograph above and to give the horse the quality of life it deserves. We endeavor to carry out without favour the following.

Upon regaining the brightness and softness in their eyes, we do our utmost to maintain their recovery.

September 2013

The horse feed in the above photograph was donated by two generous persons, this type of donation lessens the pressure that horse owners experience and we say "Thank you, we really appreciate your help".
