THE HERD & SPONSORSHIP
where our inspiration comes from.
Our incredible ponies which truly are the heart of R&J Equestrian. Their calm nature, willingness and love for humans keep us inspired and invested in the process of our clients. Take a look below at our fantastic herd.
Each pony is available for sponsorship during the COVID-19 pandemic. every single penny from each sponsorship will go towards the feed, daily care, vet & farrier bills. These sponsorship's are essential to the survival of the centre and help ensure the ponies can stay in their current loving home during this unprecedented time.
Each sponsorship is £5 per month and each sponsor will receive
e-updates of their chosen pony,
their routine, and care,
photos and videos sent often
as well as fun facts about equines.
The ponies at R&J Equestrian have all been donated. Some are with us on a lifetime loan, some have come to us to retire from competition home and outgrown riders and others have been rescued and given to us because they have nowhere else to go.
we provide them with a sanctuary and show them, unconditional love
All of the ponies are trained by the R&J team to enable them to help families and young people by providing therapy and education to our service users.
Our ponies are often a lifeline to children who are struggling to stay in education, can’t make friends or sustain friendships and are unable to cope with the pressures of daily life.
They are the Ponies Helping People
Please sponsor one of our amazing ponies to help them help others
