HELP INGESTRE HORSES THROUGH THE CRISIS !
We are still here! Our wonderful students are keeping the horses ticking over for when you can all return. With your very generous help we are managing to keep all of the horses fed and happy. It will take years to recover financially from this, but we are determined, and kept positive by all of your kind messages and support. Thank you.
Here at Ingestre we have fifty wonderful horses who have helped thousands of riders achieve their dreams. We are working hard to ensure that they can continue to do so when life returns to normal. Feeding, footcare and veterinary attention for fifty horses is very costly and with our income reduced to zero is proving extremely difficult to manage. We are appealing for help from clients old and new, old friends and people we have yet to meet! Our aim is to be able to maintain all of the horses during this terrible time in order that they will be fit and well and ready to continue their vital role in the development of riders of all levels once the virus is under control.
If we can reach our target of £5,000 we can cover the majority of our feed bill for the next few weeks. If we raise more we might cover all of it and the hay bill! We are hoping to be able to maintain all of our horses and ponies and keep jobs open for our fantastic staff. In normal times our overheads are approximately £4,500 per week. Now, three weeks in to lock down we are beginning to recognise that our future seriously hangs in the balance. We are extremely grateful for all of the donations that are helping us to keep going.
