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.
