Story

Many of the Tower Farm wider family have expressed a wish to help with the horses feed and care at this incredibly hard time. Most overheads will remain although there will be zero income. Any donation you could make would really help to ensure Tower Farm is going to weather this storm. After 48yrs of providing many equestrian related activites this is definately going to be our hardest year to date.

Buying a bale of hay Approx £30 will help keep our lovely horses in good health and ready to resume activites when the current situation improves. We will still have Feed, Vet, Farrier and obviously staff costs to cover, along with overheads like water, power, insurance, trade waste. Any donation large or small would be amazing, a number of people have been offering to donate their normal lesson costs or the money they would normally be spending on lunches and coffee.

The horses would be incredibly grateful if we could raise extra to also pay for summer grazing approx £5500.00 so they can stick to their normal routines as much as possible.

Some of the older horses also recieve redigrass grass buckets daily to help with keeping condition.

The horses are a bit confused at the moment as their normal routine has been broken and most are looking to come in and work. They will be just fine as long as we can filll there tummies and give them some tlc in the coming months.

They will all be looking forward to welcolming you back for pony rides, lessons, ride outs and many other activites.

    Just a little update to say a massive thank you to everyone supporting the horses. We have had so many incredible messages from many clients from years ago telling stories of their time at Tower Farm. Many are talking about wanting to bring their grandchildren to where they ride as a child. We are doing regular posts on our Facebook page is anyone wishes to see pictures of the horses during lockdown. Hope everyone and their family are keeping well and all the team horses and staff can't wait to welcome you back.

    Thank you so much to everyone who has donated. A number of lovely clients that had already pre paid lessons or deposits have donated their payments to helping feed the horses, incredibly kind. If you wish to donate and would rather sent a cheque please drop us a wee e mail or donate any pre paid sessions just let us know. The ponies/horses are doing just fine and starting to fall into their new routine.

    My brother and I remember our favorite ponies in the 70s, not long after Judy had opened the riding school: Neally, Tinker, Clive, Nelson, Fudge. My daughter now has lessons with you. Good luck!
