CLICK HERE for Mane Chance War Horse Memorial Concert on YouTube  National Animal Day Variety Concert in support of Mane Chance Sanctuary. Sunday 23 August at 8.00pm starring Marti Pellow, Pete Howarth, Brian Conley, Colin Thackery and many more...

The War Horse Memorial is the first national memorial dedicated to the millions of UK, Allied and Commonwealth horses, mules and donkeys lost during The Great War. It pays tribute to the nobility, courage, unyielding loyalty and immeasurable contribution these animals played in giving us the freedom of democracy we all enjoy today, and signifies the last time the horse would be used on a mass scale in modern warfare.

The War Horse Memorial is located on the major Ascot roundabout opposite Heatherwood Hospital and Car Park 1 of Ascot Racecourse. Postcode: SL5 8AA.

The Memorial will form a catalyst for an on-going fundraising campaign to support military and equine charities after all memorial costs are paid. The principal beneficiaries will be The Household Cavalry Foundation and the Mane Chance Sanctuary. Other complementary charities will also be supported.
