When you sponsor a favourite horse, pony or donkey you become an official friend of The Horse Trust. It costs on average £4,500 per year to care for each of our 140 horses, ponies and donkeys. Our work is funded 100% by public donations and is only possible thanks to the generosity of our supporters. Sponsoring a horse means that we can continue to care for those horses who have publicly served our country or who have been neglected, abused or abandoned.
Every sponsor will get a fantastic pack including a certificate which can be framed, fact-file about your chosen horse, pony or donkey and two lovely photos, and quarterly updates about how they are getting on with a couple more photos! Depending on what level you sponsor at (Gold, Silver or Bronze), you could also receive a cuddly toy, calendar and Season Pass which allows you free access to visit our residents for an entire season during our regular opening times!
Setting up your sponsorship is easy. With just three clicks you can become a friend today. 1. Choose which wonderful resident you want to sponsor. 2. Select which level is right for you and 3. Decide the easiest way to pay. Those three little clicks really can make a huge difference.
Please understand that it is not always possible to meet your favourite when you visit. There will always be a fantastic selection of horses, ponies and donkeys here to meet you, but their health comes first and we can’t guarantee that a particular horse will be available on any given day.
