All the horses HRA take in stay with us for a period of assessment and rehabilitation before being put up for adoption. Some horses, due to physical or psychological trauma, need to stay with us for a substantial amount of time, which can be a very costly exercise. Due to age or ill health some of our residents will remain with HRA for the rest of their life. Sponsors are needed to help with the care of all horses and ponies until they are placed in a caring adoption home. There are three tiers of sponsorship available, depending on the individual horse’s needs.
1. Maintenance Sponsorship – $25 per month
Horses who have been through their period of rehabilitation and now require help to cover the cost of their day to day maintenance such as feed, farrier and dentist visits, vaccinations and worming.
You will receive regular updates on your horse’s progress, as well as a complimentary HRA calendar or gift to thank you.
Horses available for ‘Maintenance Sponsorship’ are:
2. Extra Care Sponsorship – $50 per month
Horses who are currently undergoing their period of rehabilitation and require help to cover the cost of special feeds, supplements, extra farriery care and training, in addition to their day to day care.
You will receive regular updates on your horse’s progress, as well as a complimentary HRA calendar or gift to thank you and a set of hand made cards featuring your horse to send to friends.
Horses available for ‘Extra Care Sponsorship’ are:
3. Special Needs Sponsorship – $75 per month
Horses who are in rehab but have additional needs due to injury, illness or disease. They require help to cover vet visits and medications, chiropractic visits or equine massage, in addition to their day to day care and any special dietry requirements or training.
You will receive regular updates on your horse’s progress, a complimentary HRA calendar or gift to thank you, a set of handmade cards featuring your horse to send to friends and a coffee mug featuring a photo of your horse.
