    Story

    We are all experiencing a very challenging and difficult time due to Covid-19.

    Here at Hole Farm, our whole existence depends on our riding school. We have no other form of income i.e. liveries, shows etc.

    The ponies/horses help and support so many people from every background in this community of Birmingham and offer the opportunity to visit Woodgate Valley Country Park and at a reasonable cost to access the "magic of horses", either through a horse back trek through the 450 acre park or learn to ride in our lovely indoor and outdoor schools.

    Since we have shut the school temporarily there is no income to pay for the upkeep of our equine friends starting now.

    I want to make sure that they are just as well cared for now and when we open again.

    With no riding school income, this is proving extremely difficult. Our biggest fear is that we have to let the ponies go.

    We are asking for donations however great or small to keep our ponies/horses healthy and safe in their home for when the centre re-opens.

    As you are aware, we are a British Horse Society (BHS) approved centre. The society are working selflessly to protect the welfare of the animals and safety of riders and very shortly with their help, we will be introducing online virtual lessons, quizzes and sending you photos and videos of the ponies/horses.

    If you don't wish to contribute, could you please just share this?

    Our sincerest thanks for all your support.

      Just to inform everyone that we have now reached our target of £5,000 with a final donation from one of our regular customers "Dave"who noticed we were £324.00 short of our target, adores "Rupert" and gave the centre a cheque for this amount.Amazing The generosity that this plea has created has overwhelmed us and I would like to thank everyone involved for their kindness. We have now opened our doors to a reduced number of riders due to social distancing rules but hope to be fully open once the rules are relaxed Many thanks from us all Carolxx

      This is Quest This pony have been to hell and back. We really thought we were going to loose him. We are estatic and hopeful that they have turn the corner and on their way to recovery, fingers crossed. You may of noticed that they are on different grazing paddocks to the others, this piece of land has been donated as refuge to aid their recovery (there is nothing like Dr. Green) and many many thanks to Woodgate Valley Urban Farm for allowing us to use this fresh space. Thanking everyone for their on going support.😊 Carol & the staff
