Personal Ponies - Year in Review

Mathew Meets his Pony for the first time

Dear Friends,

This has been an interesting year.  Earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tornados in record proportions!!!  Nonetheless, Personal Ponies is well rooted after 27 years of service to children with special needs.   Although more funds were needed than ever before to support our volunteers and ponies, we are still reaching those that need us.  To summarize, a few projects that were funded by our Global Giving program are listed below.  This will give you an idea of what is needed and how you can help!

1.  Transport of two ponies from Idaho to Oregon to reach a child with Cerebal Palsy.  $400 was sent to help with health certificates for our ponies and transport costs to get the ponies to Oregon.

2. Gelding two young colts in Texas.  A long time volunteer sold her ranch due to financial struggles forcing her to return seven ponies to the program.  All seven will be placed with new volunteers in Texas but two young colts had to be gelded costing $500.

3. Gelding a wonderful stallion in Minnesota after one of our caretkers passed away from a year long struggle with brain cancer.  The family will carry on the program but will no longer breed and did not have the funds available after medical costs,etc.

4.  Getting two ponies ready for Christmas to surprise a young boy in two weeks!  Cost for health papers, etc $300

5.  Removing five ponies from a volunteer who has financial problems after a business closure.  Ponies need all their health records updated and cost of travel.  They are all in good new homes serving many children, mostly in Maryland.  The cost to assist and get everyone where they are going was $800.

THANK EACH AND EVER ONE OF YOU FOR YOUR HELP.  WE ARE A SMALL PROGRAM MAKING A DIFFERENCE ONE BY ONE.  WE ARE 100 PERCENT VOLUNTEER AND NO ONE IN THE ENTIRE ORGANIZATION IS PAID A PENNY.  THIS MAKES YOUR HELP ALL THE MORE APPRECIATED AND NEEDED!!!!

DO WATCH OUR VIDEO BELOW.  IT WILL WARM YOUR HEARTS! 

I hope you will consider us for your end of the year contributions and help us reach out to more children in 2012!

With Gratitude,

$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.
