Sponsoring a horse or pony with us is a shared experience – where any single animal may have up to fifty sponsors. Along with helping your chosen horse or pony, your sponsorship helps all other horses and ponies in our care, from running our stable yard, buying feed and assisting with our veterinary fees.

If you decide that sponsoring a horse is not for you, you are more than welcome to help in other ways. Please check out how you can do this here.

Once you have specially selected your new Here4Horses friend, we will send you your welcome pack – the certificate will be there as a daily reminder of our sincere appreciation.

We think all of your generous donations should go directly towards meeting our aims and objectives and for that reason, we will primarily update you on the horse and pony stable stories online.

You can expect online updates in Spring & Autumn, alongside a special card at Christmas sent directly to you from your chosen pony, all aimed at keeping you informed of their journey and explaining how your contribution has made a difference.

Of course. If your sponsored horse or pony is lucky enough to be given a second chance, we will let you know in advance. We will always offer you the opportunity to continue your sponsorship with another of our Here4Horses residents and will be delighted to have your continued support of ponies and horses in our care for many years to come.

Some of our residents may not prove suitable for re-homing and will remain with us until the end of their life. These horses and ponies will always be available for you to sponsor.

Long term and ‘Super Sponsors’ will receive special recognition in our annual awards.

We want sponsoring a horse to be a simple process. Please take a look on the Home Page at our stable-yard of equine friends waiting for you to view. Once you have fallen in love with one of our Here4Horses residents, simply click ‘Sponsor Me’.

You’ll be taken to our donation page and asked to pledge £3 per month by direct debit. You can of course apply any greater amount you wish and we are always extremely grateful for whatever further donations you feel able to give. Once you have selected your chosen amount, you’ll need to complete the registration. You will then receive a welcome email and your sponsorship pack will arrive by post shortly afterwards.

From time to time we plan to have VIP open days for our valued sponsors, enabling them to visit our stables. You’ll be able to meet your sponsor horse or pony and bond over a cup of tea and a carrot perhaps. Keep an eye on the News section of our website for dates of forthcoming events.

Your welcome pack should arrive within 10 working days. However, please allow slightly longer when signing up over Bank Holidays.

Yes, you certainly can and we feel it is the perfect gift for Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries or indeed any special occasion… giving the gift of second chance sponsorship, makes a real difference and is a precious gift for a loved one to receive.

In order to sponsor a pony, we kindly ask you to set up a standing order. This is much easier for us to administer. If however, you would prefer to pay by cheque or bank transfer, please email enquiries@here4horses.org.uk for assistance.

Super sponsors are those individuals who are in a position to donate at least £100 per month or the annual equivalent.

The title will also apply to regular sponsors who have supported us for five years or more.
