    Weʼve raised £5,400 to fund the Overdale EC Equine Team through Lockdown 3.

    Funded on Wednesday, 5th May 2021

    Overdale Equestrian Centre is the UK home base of Mary Wanless - author, coach, and creator of the ‘Ride With Your Mind’ approach to developing riding skills. She holds her Rider Biomechanics courses at Overdale and around the world. Karin Major runs the riding school at Overdale EC, offering Rider Biomechanics lessons and training throughout the year. We have a team of 9 school horses.

    As we go into Covid Lockdown 3 we are seeking your support to help us feed our team of school horses. The Winter months are always the most challenging of the year. The grass has stopped growing and our horses are dependant on roughage, supplied as hay or haylage, and supplemented by hard feed and balancers. Under normal circumstances this feed, along with farrier and veterinary fees, is paid for from the income from lessons. Lockdown has prohibited any lessons or courses and hence our income. The British Horse Society advise it can cost up to £40 a week to care for just one horse.

    Mary Wanless started recording a series of Podcasts in Lockdown 1, and there are already 40 episodes available. Mary is planning to continue recording more episodes throughout Lockdown 3. These will continue to be made available FREE. Do check them out at

    We were very grateful to those of you who helped us through Lockdown 1, as well as those local landowners who donated grazing last spring. Every donation helps, however small, and we thank you in advance. We look forward to welcoming you to Overdale in the future.

        I’m so grateful for Mary’s podcasts - they have not only transformed my riding, but my general body strength also, meaning my chronic back pain is easing with time.

      What is crowdfunding?

      Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

      The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
