WHAT IS SPONSORING A RESCUE HORSE?
Sponsoring a horse is helping that horse by paying for some or all of its expenses.
Sponsoring can be a one-time donation or ongoing support.
The basic costs for a horse’s upkeep are for hay, grain, bedding, feeding and stall cleaning. This expense is $300 per month per horse
Horses incur other expenses as well;
They need to have their feet taken care of by a farrier every 6 weeks. If they just need a trim the cost is $40. If a horse wears just regular front shoes the cost is $90, all 4 shoes are $180 and if they need special or therapeutic shoeing the cost can end up being quite a bit more
Horses need their teeth maintained on a regular basis, usually annually. Depending on the work they need done this costs from $100 upward.
All horses need some type of vet care, from exams and vaccinations through surgeries.
If you sponsor a horse’s basic expenses for 6 months or more you will receive a stall plate with you named as their sponsor and you will receive a photo of your sponsored horse.
Sponsorships are a wonderful gift to the rescue horses and greatly appreciated by the rescue.
