Heavy horse enthusiast Martin Clunes, of ITV's Doc Martin, is asking supporters to become part of Dime's journey by helping HorseWorld to equip the once abandoned five-year-old mare with everything she needs to become a working Shire. Learning to work in harness is an exciting new challenge for Dime. Watch her first steps narrated by Martin in HorseWorld's video, Dime's Story. To give Dime the best opportunity for progress, she needs your help.
£5 could pay for fly spray to keep the midges off Dime while she works (as she has no tail!)
£10 could pay for the long ropes we use to long-rein Dime when training her to use a harness
£50 could pay for any chiropractic treatments Dime may need
£100 could pay towards Dime's hay supply for the winter
£200 could pay for a harrow for Dime to pull
£500 could pay towards any unexpected veterinary bills Dime may incur
£1,300 could pay for a four-wheeled exercise cart for Dime to pull
£2000 could pay for Dime's harness and fitting costs
Together we can give an abandoned horse a new life.
Dime's Appeal was created to enable HorseWorld to purchase the equipment needed to bring Dime into work and to maintain her upkeep. The charity currently provides for one-hundred-and-four rescued horses onsite in Whitchurch, Bristol and requires ongoing funds to maintain its high levels of care. Any additional funds raised as a result of Dimes Appeal will go into rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing equines in need.
