HELP US TO HEAL EQUINES AND CHILDREN AND ACHIEVE A DREAM TO BUILD A SAFE HAVEN FOR CHILDREN TO BE WITH OUR HORSES, PONIES AND DONKEYS

'THE TRANQUIL BARN'

To all the wonderful people who have clicked on the link please read this through and if you are able to help we would be so, so grateful. 

We are small Horse & Pony Sanctuary based in the UK and France. This charity started in 1976 and then started to take in ex Police Horses from two Police Forces in the UK and have been doing this since 1993. These horses who have been retired through no fault of their own, either through injury or mental health problems from their former work life, would have no where else to go. The Police do not have the funds to help keep these horses, so we rely soley on public donations.

During the last few years we have discovered through children and adults visiting the centres that the horses and ponies in our care have the power to heal. Horses don’t see a child with autism. They see a child. Autistic children know this, and it feels good to them. In order for anyone, autistic or otherwise, to grow, heal, and have positive relationships with others, they must first have a positive relationship with themselves. Horses have the ability to make humans feel good about themselves. This also applies to young adults/adults with emotional problems. These horses understand everything and they benefit from close contact with humans that care.

So how can you help to keep this work going and to help us to keep these very special horses. We need funds and sometimes you just cannot do it all by yourself - we need your help. Feed, Hay, Vets, Farrier and the Dentist all cost enormous amounts of money, but our dream is to build facilities for these children to benefit from being upclose and to touch and hug a horse/pony/donkeys and with this mind we want to build an undercover area so that this good work can be achieved. This barn is to be called:

'THE TRANQUIL BARN'.

Your donations are the first steps in a journey to make this dream become a reality. A huge amount of work is going on in the background and we now have professionals showing an interest in helping with the construction of the facilities that the children and horses need. As a small charity every penny/euro counts even the smallest of donations are of great value.

Just knowing that people care is priceless. Thank you
