'Sponsor a Horse' Scheme

Our horses and ponies are very special. They all have super temperaments and are specially trained for their job. As you may know the upkeep of a horse is very expensive, they take a lot of feeding, shoeing and 'man hours' to care for them. If you could sponsor one of our beautiful horses it would greatly help towards their costs and enable us to carry on providing horse riding lessons for people who really benefit.

Our scheme lets you choose from nine of our most popular horses and ponies, and three levels of sponsorship.
