Winter Hay Donation
If you would like to help us this winter with a donation towards bales of hay, this would be much appreciated. Our 12 horses and ponies are getting through about 4-6 bales a day. Just £3.00 would buy a bale of hay for them.
Join the Herd
An opportunity for previous clients to spend up to 2 hours with horses and ponies just being part of their herd. This time is therapeutic, but it is not a private therapy session (private sessions are facilitated by practitioners). These sessions are regularly held each month between March – October. The next session is: Spring 2018, date to be confirmed. You may be interested in our one off Winter Warmer to help ground you between Christmas and New Years (scroll down for further details).
Cushing’s disease or PPID which is a progressive disease that effects the pituitary gland and consequently effects the endocrine and nervous system. At present has no cure, but can be managed with a dopamine therapy drug called Pergolide. This costs approx. £60 every month based on 1 tablet x daily. This drug regulates the hormonal levels and can mean that horses have extended and better quality lives than before. Logan is only 10. If you would like to help us support and manage his health for as long he is enjoying a quality of life, then we appreciate any help towards the cost of his therapy.

As a thank you for your help, you will receive a sponsor pack which includes: A photograph of your chosen equine, A certificate detailing your chosen equines story, Regular updates via our biannual newsletter, A paintedhorse memento, and An opportunity to visit your chosen friend at one of our open days
