raised of £1,500 target by 22 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,500 to pay for the animal feed so we can support families with Autism with our Animal Assisted Therapy Sessions & Autism friendly activities.

Don't have time to donate right now?


We have created a stress-free, non-judgmental environment at The Little Explorers Activity Club CIC for families with autism and other special needs to enjoy with our animals offering animal-assisted therapy, therapeutic pony rides, home education days and activities for all abilities.

Mainly working with children on the Autism Spectrum and their families but also families with anxiety and depression.

Our Outcomes: Improved confidence, communication, self-esteem, skills & personal development. A sense of community and relief from isolation.

We believe in tailoring each session to individual needs and empowering the parent’s knowledge and skills to be able to use our approach at home even without the ponies. We have developed a free PDF downloadable 30 page guide for the families to follow.

This year we are raising funds to pay for the animal's feed, the hay alone costs £1200 per yr. All costs have gone up since the war started in the Ukraine and this has put high pressures on our resources. We deeply appreciate any donations so we can keep supporting the families that come to our sessions.

Each bale of hay costs £5.

Spending time with ponies is proven to reduce anxiety, aid communication with kids on the autism spectrum, ADD, ADHD and reduce depression.

It has been seen to lower blood pressure, help concentration, calm anxiety and build confidence. It has been clinically documented that just being around horses and ponies changes human brainwave patterns, we calm down and become more centered and focused when we are with them. This is a precious gift for those on the spectrum and their families.
