Help Save Ukraine’s Youth Equestrian War Horses

Donation protected
Suffolk animal therapy farm, Wilderley, is appealing to the equestrian community and animal lovers everywhere for urgent funding to help evacuate injured and at-risk horses in the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv, which is currently under siege. Wilderley is coordinating the campaign to save the horses with Dergachev Children's and Youth Equestrian School of the Kharkiv's State Biotechnological University (formerly the Kharkiv State Veterinary Academy).

The horse yard is located on the Eastern side of Kharkiv, currently being controlled by the Russian forces.

Wilderley has already raised immediate funds to help transport the horses to a safer place in Ukraine. Still, we urgently need further funding to cover the necessary vaccinations and passports before the horses can be moved to the safety of the UK. Once there, they will be transported to Wilderley, where we will call for foster homes.

The head groom at the stables said: “We have managed to place some of the horses in temporary stables, but we need to get the rest out as soon as possible. The added problem is that while the owners of the temporary stables are kind people, they cannot keep our horses for a long time because they do not have enough food or space. Your help in any small part is a serious step for us and our horses, for which we will be eternally grateful.”

Please donate; however small. It will help make a real difference to these horses' future safety and health.

Thank you for reading. x
