We are currently running four sponsorship programs – all are to support horses in long-term care.
Our Golden Oldies are often with us for many years. The Track to Hack program helps ex-racehorses be rehabilitated and retrained for a new life and Pony Preschool cares for young horses and helps them right through to starting under saddle, if necessary. Our Mum’s n’ Bub’s program has been developed to nurture pregnant mares and their foals once born so they can receive the best start in life.
Only a very small percentage of older horses or even younger unrideable horses ever get adopted – even if they are in good health. We are often criticised for taking on “older” horses but we don’t ever want to have to turn away these beautiful souls who just want to love and be loved like any other horse.
Our Track to Hack horses often come to us injured or broken down or perhaps they just weren’t successful. They may be ex-broodmares or have never even raced. One thing they all have in common is that they need to be rehabilitated and retrained before they can be adopted – and this usually takes at least 12 months.
The costs involved in keeping our Golden Oldies , Track to Hack and Preschool horses in absolute comfort whilst they are in care – warm rugs, full bellies and every possible treatment to keep them physically comfortable – are high. This puts a lot of strain on our funds and restricts us from taking in new horses in need. Becoming a sponsor offers you the chance to change the life of one of these horses.
