You are able to sponsor a horse no matter where you are in the world! Private or company.

For a business it can be Tax Deductible

Your contribution to these horses will help us in maintaining their high quality of life and retirement from the racing industry.

It gives you the opportunity to give back to your wider community and support a small local business trying to rise above the challenges that COVID 19 has faced us with.

You can choose to do a one off, weekly or even yearly payments, whatever works best for you!

The sponsorship option is completely at your discretion, you may provide the amount of support that suits you best. If you choose to do a recurring payment, the timing is also up to you. We are super appreciative of any support at all.

HOW much does the average horse cost:

The cost of hay and basic care per horse works out to be approximately $70 dollars per week, meaning $280 per month for us. Vet bills can sometimes be sky high as well and that is not included in our weekly average.

Our goal is to gain enough support in the way of sponsorships that each horse is allocated $280 per month. Once we have achieved our goal for a given horse we will decline additional sponsorship for that horse.

When you sponsor any horse(s) for a minimum of value of $1680 over a one year period, we would love that you join us with 8 of your friends, family or colleagues for a trek or group riding lesson, great teambuilding outdoor experience!

WHAT horse(s) to pick

Each of our horses is an individual with their own history and story to tell. Just like you and I, they all have their own personalities, friends, likes and dislikes. Maybe it’ll be their name, good looks, or overwhelming size that catches your eye, take a read through their profiles to find out!
