Challenge

At the time Personal Ponies Ltd was founded, there seemed to have been a very real lack of attention to the needs of young children with special needs and there was an absence of suitable small-sized equines bred just for them. Knowing that these children need attention and ways to feel empowered, Personal Ponies grew and is growing. Our commitment is that of service - most especially to those who need caring the most - the children who are differently able in our world.

Solution

Personal Ponies Ltd is 100% volunteer. No one is paid and we never charge for our service. Funds are needed at times to support our families and to get our ponies to the children that need them. All funds raised go directly to this effort.

Long-Term Impact

Personal Ponies Ltd touches lives and is a model for the future. Every community needs a program that asks nothing in return.The program grew from 2 ponies in NY to1800 in almost every state in the US with 1000s of volunteers touching lives.

$10
Helps pay for feed and hay for a child's pony. Many times paying for pony care can be cost prohibitive and our national office tries to help. Providing money for feed and hay can make a difference.
$25
Helps cover some of the yearly health costs for maintaining a child's pony. Veterinarian fees can be costly, especially given the costs a family faces for the care of a differently able child.
$50
Pays part of transport costs for pony travel. Getting our ponies to the children that need them can be very costly. Transport is one of our biggest challenges
$100
Provides funds for breeding costs for broodmare and foal care. Without volunteer breeders we have no future program. Breeders are in need of financial support at times especially for foaling.
$150
Will cover the costs for a new family to purchase halters, leadlines, water buckets, grooming equipment, and saddles or driving equipment.
$200
Pay the cost of gelding one of our young colts so that he can begin his life as a child's pony friend. All colts not in our breeding program are gelded at around 6 months of age.
$500
Will help care for one of our retired ponies for one year. Retired ponies have given a life of service often need extra care and support. Retired ponies are treated with great care and appreciation.
$2,000
Will be held in savings for emergency care for a pony whose family needs help. Economic conditions or personal situations require emergency financial support so a child can keep his or her ponies.
