Suffolk Punch Centre

This is where you can come and meet some of The Colony Stud's star characters - the horses and foals.
Along with the horses, we also work to protect other endangered breeds of native farm animals by looking after them and raising awareness to aid their survival.
Get involved and try something different with our range of activities.
