One-Off Donations

Listed below will explain what your donation will do for the horses and children that Greatwood helps each year.

Sue Danaher - Equine Welfare Manager£5 Donation
Some of the children on Horse Power sessions have never met a horse before. £5 pays for a body brush, brushing a horse makes both the child and the horse feel at ease with each other helping them to form a bond.

Sue Danaher - Equine Welfare Manager£9 Donation
Horses can be extremely malnourished when they arrive at Greatwood. £9 pays for a bag of feed allowing us to nurture them back to their ideal weight.

Sue Danaher - Equine Welfare Manager£17 Donation
Tetanus is a bacterial disease that can affect horses badly. £17 will pay for an injection for one of Greatwood’s horses to be protected from tetanus; this has to happen regularly, as sadly tetanus is fatal.

Sue Danaher - Equine Welfare Manager£30 Donation
Children and horses can behave unpredictably together. £30 pays for a helmet for each child as safety is the most important thing in any Horse Power session.

Sue Danaher - Equine Welfare Manager£49 Donation
Greatwood does not charge for any Horse Power sessions. £49 pays for each child to attend for one session that is individually tailored to meet the special needs of each child.

Sue Danaher - Equine Welfare Manager£120 Donation
Horses with weak flat feet or collapsed heels need specifically designed shoes. £120 pays for a new set of these remedial shoes that prevent further painful problems.

Sue Danaher - Equine Welfare Manager£390 Donation
Most of the children we help attend Horse Power sessions for a whole term. £390 pays for a child with special educational needs to spend enough time with our horses for changes in behaviour to develop..

Sue Danaher - Equine Welfare Manager£500 Donation
Greatwood collected Whisky from a field of mud last spring. He is now thriving. £500 pays for the horse lorry needed to rescue the most needy cases.

Sue Danaher - Equine Welfare Manager£3500 Donation
Kissing spines can be extremely painful for a horse. £3,500 pays for an operation to cure a case of kissing spines, because of the age and condition of our horses; we have on average 3 cases per year.

Sue Danaher - Equine Welfare Manager£5000
Every horse that comes to Greatwood needs special care and attention. £5,000 pays for Greatwood to care for a horse for a year.
