As anyone that's owned a horse will know, it is expensive to keep horses and because they work hard, we must ensure they are well looked after. We supplement their grass with hay and other hard feed, and they receive regular professional care from vets, dentists, chiropractors and farriers.
To keep our horses in top condition we ask that anyone wishing to support our work at Ambury Park Centre considers doing so by sponsoring a horse. A donation of $2500 per year will help pay for for the upkeep of the selected working horse and ensure he or she is in top condition to work at the centre. You can find a list of horses eligible for sponsorship on our website under "Our Horses".
For this support, sponsors will receive:
The rewarding knowledge that they have made a significant difference to our programme.
A commemorative certificate and biography of their chosen horse.
Social media acknowledgement.
An invitation to the end-of-year prize giving.
Plus you are more than welcome to visit your sponsored horse to see them in action.
Some of the horses have been with us a long time, others are relatively new. We have both mares and geldings, and a variety of different breeds. Each horse has a distinct personality and, depending on a number of factors, is used for therapy rides, or by our full-time students, or both.
