Sponsorship of our horses at Horse Vision.
The horses who find a ‘job’ at the centre are those that no longer have a ‘use’ in the traditional sense. Each horse that comes into the program seems to come with a special talent or message. Also, sometimes they come from lives of both emotional and physical abuse, and these horses usually have high needs. When participants come to work with these horses, they often see marked changes. When their focus is taken off themselves and placed on another individual – in this case, the horse – something seems to ‘shift’ or change for the person involved. They make changes or see things differently because they need to do this to help the horse.
The participants find clarity and calmness, and become more present and aware of the body language of themselves and the horse. Very often, they also find trust. These things need to occur to build a relationship with the horse. Horses see through our external display to who we really are and then they simply reflect that image back to us. In doing so, they facilitate a journey for us to rediscover our true self. At the centre, people help horses … And in doing so, they help themselves.
We have been blessed to meet and spend time with some amazingly generous people. They have supported our work and the horses here at the centre with a myriad of donated gifts: money, gear, tack, equipment, feed supplies, vet products, pro bono work or donations.
We could not have ever hoped for such generosity, and we most certainly would not be where we are today without it. To all those wonderful, caring people, we thank you from the bottom of our heart for all you have done to support the horses and for contributing to the work they do.
The sponsorship of the horses is open to all businesses, organisations, families or individuals.
As a thank you we would like to give sponsors the option to do a session with the horses. This session would be once a year and could involve 1 to 15 participants. You can organise this at the time of setting up your sponsorship.
The options for sponsorship are explained below:
A sponsorship of $80 per month would enable us to feed one horse. Some of the horses at the centre are now seniors so they require a prepared feed each day to maintain their weight and health.
$40 per month will give us the funds to have one horse’s feet regularly trimmed. As the horses at the centre have had injuries, this regular trimming is paramount to their comfort and ability to help the people who attend the centre.
$20 per month will allow us to do one horse’s teeth each year. The horses require regular dental treatment so they can maintain proper health and weight.
All sponsors would become part of a closed Facebook page where they could keep up-to-date with what is happening with their horse.
