Norwich horse sanctuary at Hapton appears on BBC children’s television show

A horse sanctuary near Norwich is set to appear on a children's television series about the world of animals.

Redwings horse sanctuary, of Hapton, Norwich, welcomed film crews from Dick and Dom Go Wild who recorded a half-hour episode about the charity's work.

The show is set to air tomorrow morning at 8am on CBBC with children meeting the one-eyed horse, Noel, and experiencing what it is like to ride and muck-out ponies.

Redwings Communication Manager, Nicola Markwell, said: 'A lot of children come to our Visitor Centres and love our residents so we are confident that the wider CBBC audience will really enjoy a closer look at Redwings. As we rely totally on public support, we're grateful to have been included in the content. It was great fun to film.'

The Redwings horse sanctuary was established in 1984 and holds more than 1,200 horses.
