Story

Please sponsor our gorgeous school horses and ponies and help us survive this pandemic.

We are appealing to those that would like to support TDS Riding Centre to help us feed and care for our 20 horses.

Unfortunately, Government Grants only cover a fraction of what it costs to care for our equine partners, with the average cost of keeping just one horse for a single week being £100. We also have to meet rent, utilities and staffing costs on top of this. And, of course, Lockdown #3 is forecasted to be prolonged and has come at our most difficult time i.e.. Winter.

Your donation could help buy feed, bedding or hay, or help pay one of our dedicated team to provide the daily care needed.

Thank you for reading and caring!

    This lockdown is proving challenging for so many - but with 20 horses to feed, and only livery income coming in, the next few weeks look very bleak indeed. There is an end in sight, but another month to go before we can open again and start to pay off some of the bills which are mounting up. Projected outgoings for the next 4 weeks are around £7000 - income around £2000, so please help if you can. Recent donations have helped to pay for our vets bill and feed, and we are so appreciative of your support. We need happy healthy horses for March 29

    One whole month since we started our fundraiser, 5 weeks in to lockdown #3. We have been shown such kindness, often by people we have never met, and so many of you have sent donations and messages of support - thank you all. Just to give you an example of some of our outgoings to keep our TDS horses happy and healthy, this month's vet bill is £1326.00 On this we have several vaccinations, a colic, a nasty wound needing stapling, and removal of wolf teeth... It is why we ask you now, to continue your support if you can. Thank you so much x

    Hi everyone, just thought we would update you on what is happening here at TDS. For riding schools the UK over times are getting very tough right now. The winter is harsh, and harsher still is the reality that not all of us are going to make it through this lockdown. Without an end in sight, and with grants already spent on forage, vets, utilities and staffing costs we truly are in our hour of need right now. If you want to have a riding school to come back to when this is all over, please help. Every donation counts - thank you x
