De Paardenkamp Horse Camp

De Paardenkamp Horse Camp

Retirement home for horses and ponies

Soest - The average age of a horse is about 20 to 25 years. But 40 is also possible. From the age of twenty years, the animal becomes senior and it is also time for a horse to slow down. The Horse Camp in Soest is a rest home for older horses and ponies. The home was already established in 1962 by Mr. C.J. 't Hart, secretary of the local animal protection.

Retired animals

Horses also develop grey hair, less muscle mass and wear of the joints in old age. Just like humans. The retired animals can walk around in the meadows around De Paardenkamp and enjoy the peace and care they need.
