Horses in Need SXM

St. Maarten was completely destroyed by Hurricane Irma.


The animals are also severely affected. At Seaside Nature Park (a riding school, children’s discovery farm and care farm) are about 70 horses and a dozen goats, sheep, rabbits, guinea pigs and pigs. As by a miracle, most animals survived this monstrous hurricane. However, they now stand for a next hurdle and that is staying alive on an island where there is no food, medicine and shelter for them.


Therefore, food, medicines and building materials for the animals must come to Sint Maarten as soon as possible. It would be heartbreaking to lose these brave animals.


The money raised with this action goes entirely to the purchase and transportation of feed, medicines and material for the reconstruction of the housing for the animals.


We want to get the necessary needs as quickly as possible and will therefore try to ship from neighboring countries. A part will also be shipped by container from Holland, so donations in the form of feed and materials are also very welcome!

(Would you like to donate items please send me a message and I send you a list of what we need)


The reason for my great concern for this riding school / farm is that I worked until October as a coach and instructor. We were planning to start setting up horse riding for physically and mentally handicapped and autistic children in January. This plan is on hold for now but we hope to rebuild soon!


We go to Sint Maarten to volunteer ourselves when it is possible and help with reconstruction and try to ensure that there will come facilities for these children with special needs. We try to prepare ourselves as well as possible and we can use all the help.


We are incredibly grateful for your donations and help in other forms!
