Story

The Epona Trust is a non-profit making organisation which specialises in the rehabilitation of horses and ponies from difficult and challenging backgrounds, which require dedicated individual care and attention. We are passionate about helping each horse reach the full potential that it possessed as a foal. The Epona Trust strives to re-establish the ancient bond between horses and people, by working in an ethical and holistic way, embracing new techniques whilst respecting traditional values.

The Epona Trust (based at Russells Equestrian Centre in West End, Southampton) is currently home to 12 rescue horses and ponies whose feed, bedding and hay bills alone average around £600 per week.

The Epona Trust is financed purely from our sponsorship scheme (which provides a regular income but doesn't cover all of our costs), donations and fund raising events. All donations, no matter how big or small, are always gratefully received and allow us to not only support our current herd, but also to rescue and rehabilitate more horses and ponies in need - like Willoughby pictured above (you can read his story here)

£8 will buy a bale of hay

£9 will buy a bag of grass nuts (feed)

£11 will buy a bale of bedding (shavings)

£15 will buy a bag of chaff (feed)

£30 will buy a bag of synergy balancer (feed)

    Hi Everyone. Blondie here again. I told you all about my asthma last August. Sadly, I now need the nebuliser that I mentioned then. This is an expensive piece of equipment at £850 new, plus £250 for medication cups! Luckily, the lovely Epona Trust humans were able save over £500 by finding me a nice second hand one. And thanks to your kind donations, this hasn't depleted our funds as much is it might. So thank you so very much for your continued support. With love from Blondie and all the rescue horse and ponies at The Epona Trust xx

    Hello Lovely Supporters! I am Nathan. A very handsome chap and although I don't look it, at 29 this year I am the oldest rescue horse here at The Epona Trust. The other rescues have asked me to thank you all for your support in January. This has helped towards extra costs incurred due to the bad weather. In particular, additional bedding - less of us have been able to live out in the muddy fields - and additional hay - for the very hardy ones still living out as there is not so much grass for them. All very much appreciated by us all 🐴🐎💖

    Hello there! My name is Bandit, one of the lucky rescue ponies at The Epona Trust. Just dropping by to wish all our supporters a Very Happy New Year! And say a massive THANK YOU for your donations in 2023. Since July we have raised £720, which is 36% or our target. This has helped towards the cost of hay, feed, bedding and medicines for all the rescue horses and ponies here. With lots of love from us all 🐴🐎🦄💖 xx
