Pelorus Trust have once again provided much needed support.  This year (2017) they helped us to buy new helmets (required for a change in safety standards), and get some much needed help with building maintenance around the place. 

Thank you Pelorus Trust

Thank you Constellation Community Trust!  Your grant helped us make our paths, parking, and gateways safer, more accessible and far more pleasant over winter.  

Thanks too, to Golden Contracting.  Skip, and the team, have been incredibly patient and helpful!

Stage II Arena Upgrades - May 2017

Thanks to Pub Charity, we managed to complete stage two of the arena upgrade during the May school holidays.

Last year (also thanks to Pub Charity) we had the surface graded, and new cushionride installed.  This year, in stage two we have had arena fencing installed, and another top up of cushionride.  The results are a much safer, more comfortable working area for our clients, our staff and our horses.

We've added another new pony to the team, thanks to Argon Construction sponsorship.  Tommy Tucker will help take some of the load off Rocky, as he is another mid-sized sturdy pony.

We also received a grant for new tack at the end of last year from Foundation North and this has been used to purchase a selection of great new tack that will support and aid our riders in the saddle.

Our Amazing New Mounting Ramp! - Jan 2017 


We now have a fabulous new mounting ramp which will make all our clients (and our coaches) much happier getting onto their horse.  Our new accessible mounting ramp was created thanks to a grant from Grace Gives, a donation from Argon Construction, and the time and skills of the Coopers (a father and son duo responsible for the design and build)

Thanks to Pub Charity for funding our major project of 2016 - the arena resurfacing (and drainage) that has improved our facilities 100% (particularly in winter).

Thanks Lion Foundation for our new pony Gus
Welcome Gus, thanks to Lion Foundation!

We now have an absolutely awesome team of horses, with the addition of Gus.  Gus was purchased with a grant from the Lion Foundation, and has settled in to his new role flawlessly.  He's apparently of appaloosa parentage, although he doesn't have spots.

Trillian Trust

August 2017 - Thanks Trillian Trust for helping us keep our horses healthy.!


Our horses' welfare is our highest priority.  As a charity it is easy to get stuck in reactive mode, but we wanted to be proactive, and created a full health plan with preventative health checks, and vaccinations. 

A grant from Trillian Trust let's us put the first important steps of that plan into place - having all our horses and ponies vaccinated, and blood tested (so we have a baseline measure of their health), and implementing a good worming plan, with Faecal Egg Testing (FEC) to scientifically confirm the parasite control measures we need.
