Ginny and Gwilym

Where it all began

Lluest meaning ‘Haven’ in Welsh, was founded in 1985 by the late Ginny Hajdukiewicz who sadly passed away at the young age of 38 leaving the Trust as her legacy. Nestling amongst the Brecon Beacons in the beautiful Carmarthenshire countryside we rescue, rehabilitate and re-home horses, ponies and donkeys who have been the victims of cruelty and neglect. We help them to recover from their often traumatic experiences before re-homing them with new Guardian Owners. We care for up to thirty equines at any one time on our forty acre farm, with approximately one hundred on long term loan and many more in short term loan homes.

Please see our Stories Page to read about our latest rescues and some of our previous cases including the story of Gwilym a very special pony saved by our founder Ginny in 1991. 

You can be assured that every penny of your donation goes towards the care of our horses and ponies.
