Provide Care for a Differently Able Child's Pony

May 24, 2013

What is happening around Personal Ponies

Hello Friends of Personal Ponies,

Thank you again for your support and for helping us to spread a little pony magic around the country.  This spring we have used some of our donations to help move ponies to new volunteers.  There are several ponies in North Dakota that have needed to move because one of our families experienced many hardships and could no longer care for them.  The funds you provided were very needed and appreciated.

We have other ponies in South Dakota that will also need to be moved as soon as possible and your donations will help with that as well.  Otherwise, we have used your funds to help us with buying hay for those in need and gelding a pony or two!

We are also in the process of saving money where we can to help support some of our volunteers that need money to come to our National Conference in October in New York.  This conference happens once every two to three years and is the only time our volunteers can sit down face to face and share stories, learn from each other and make plans for their programs.  It is truly a valuable experience and so needed since we are all spread from one end of the country to another.

As always, I encouarge each of you to please share our program with those you know and let them know that you supported us and hopefully they will too.

All the best and with gratitude,

Denise Chasin

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.
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.
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
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.
Will cover the costs for a new family to purchase halters, leadlines, water buckets, grooming equipment, and saddles or driving equipment.
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.
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.
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.
Donating through GlobalGiving is safe, secure, and easy with many payment options to choose from. Learn more.
