where our inspiration comes from.

 Our incredible ponies which truly are the heart of Thera-Pony C.I.C. 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 and every single penny from each sponsorship will go towards the feed, daily care, vet & farrier bills.  These sponsorships are essential to the survival of the centre and help ensure the ponies can stay in their current loving home during this unprecedented time and beyond.

Each sponsorship is £5 per month and each sponsor will receive

  • An e-welcome pack with information about us and their chosen pony

  • 1 meet & greet with their chosen pony per subscription year (T&C apply)

Our Thera-Ponies have all been donated. Some are with us on a lifetime loan, some have come to us to retire from competition homes or 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 they provide us with unconditional love

Our ponies are often a lifeline to children who are struggling to stay in education, can’t make 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
