The SAFE ponies are physically cared for by a small group of experienced volunteers. Financially the group rely on donations.
In addition to caring for our horses, we assist in local rescue cases often resulting in transport and veterinary costs.

We are in the process of applying to the Charities Commission to become a registered Charity. We are currently listed as a Community Group.
Before we are able to take in a new rescue we will reach out to supporters to ensure that all costs can be covered. We will regularly attempt ‘fund raising’ efforts when money is required for all the ponies, such as fencing, transport, specific items of equipment etc.
Sponsoring a ‘SAFE’ pony
You may wish to sponsor a rescue pony yourself, or sponsor an individual cost for a specific pony, such as feed, vets etc. Exact costs cannot be predicted, but an indicative value would be ~£125 per month for the first 3 months. This includes:
One-time costs upon arrival:
SAFE volunteers will give their time to look after the pony daily, including feeding, mucking out, grooming them and handling them (potentially breaking them in) to make them suitable riding ponies eventually available for re-homing.
For Businesses wishing to sponsor a pony or donate: We have an active Facebook group of over 2000 members who are all very supportive of any sponsor of our cause. We will repay your kindness by mentioning and promoting your business amongst our supporters, and can provide you with publicity material to share with your colleagues and customers if you require.
