raised of £4,000 target by 42 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,230 to fund a mobility hoist that is fixed to the horse lorry so that mum can ride and take troy out again

    Funded on Friday, 17th June 2022

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    On 10th August 2018 everything changed. My beautiful, courageous, 68 year old mum Alvina Shiel had a horse riding accident that has left her paralysed. We don't know how much feeling and movement will return and it's a waiting game. My mums main goal is to ride her beloved horse Troy again. I have found a company who manufacture a hoist that attaches to the horse lorry. This will hoist mum out of her wheelchair and onto Troy. It will mean she can go out to venues and hopefully compete again. This will mean the world to both Mum and Troy and will help her recovery and to maintain some normality and independence. Horse riding is mum's life and I need your help to get this galloping granny back in the saddle.
