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.

£3 could buy a sack of carrots

£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

£12 could pay for the equipment to keep Dime's harness clean and in good working order

£15 could buy a heavy horse headcollar

£25 could buy a sack of feed balancer (a vitamin and mineral supplement)

£50 could pay for a chiropractic treatment for Dime

£100 could pay towards Dime's hoof trimming over the winter months. (She needs a trim every 6 weeks)

£200 could pay towards Dime's hay supply for the winter, she gets through a bale a day when the grass is sparse

£250 could pay for a harrow for Dime to pull

£300 could pay towards any veterinary bills Dime may incur. The vet is routinely assessing her while she is being trained

£1,800 could pay for a four-wheeled exercise cart for Dime to pull

£2000 could pay for Dime's harness and fitting costs

Dime's Appeal was created to enable HorseWorld to purchase the equipment needed to bring Dime into work and to maintain her upkeep including hay, feed, vet bills etc. The charity currently provides for over one hundred rescued horses onsite and requires ongoing funds to maintain its high levels of care.

Dime's rescue was funded by donations from the public and HorseWorld continue to rescue more horses that are just as desperate. Many of these we cannot publicise due to legal reasons surrounding their rescue. Funds raised from Dime's Appeal will also go towards the next horses that need the charity's help. Her success will aid their rehabilitation too.

Together we can give an abandoned horse and others like her, a new life.

All animal charities and sanctuaries do a wonderful job, but you have recently rehomed many of our local horses here in Wellingborough that were being neglected, so well done you for all that you do,
