The Trust is dedicated to preserving the Suffolk Punch breed but also the skills of the people needed to handle these wonderful horses.

Our team of workers and volunteers work hard to achieve the charitable aims of the Trust, to:

  • Protect the future of the endangered Suffolk Punch breed
  • Safeguard Suffolk unique rural history by conserving native plants and animal breeds
  • Offer educational opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds
  • Provide an beautiful open space for everyone to enjoy

With the historic Colony Stud, we inherited a rich legacy of human and equine heritage that deserves to be saved for future generations to enjoy.
