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 charity.

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


The dumping and neglect of unwanted colts in the UK has reached a critical level. Since 2016 we have treated and rehomed 7 colts, and they still keep coming. 7 doesnt sound like many to some, but its still 7 lives we have saved. This is just a tiny particle on the iceburg of what is a national crisis. The animal charities are full to the brim, yet people still keep breeding and then turning these animals away. We also have mares and fillys we have had to help too now. Its a national crisis.

So we want to do our little bit. And we ask sincerely if you would like to help. Any donation however small will be directly used for medicine, feed and housing of rescue ponies, now and in the future. Mickey was a colt dumped at the start of the year. Our care and your donations have helped him find his forever home. He is blossoming!

Now we have many more rescues.. and not just colts. Our latest rescue involved herding wild shetlands who desperately needed feet trimming. Please help us help these ponies and many many more .

    So it’s been a while since I’ve posted on here.. but our work continues. The charity paperwork is in process... finally... little champion came in on Thursday night, but was just too weak to make it despite our best efforts and budget over 24 hours. We never know when the next case will be here. Please continue to support our campaign to help these animals so they aren’t left to die and are given the compassion they deserve. Thank you! We are doing a car boot at nineacres equestrian on bank holiday Monday so please come and grab a bargain!
