We are working on lots of things at the moment to ensure the long term future and progress of the project and our Skyrian horses. This includes plans to create a membership association and run courses/workshops/retreats to fund the care of the horses.

BUT these things are taking time to organise, and right now we are having to focus on how to get the horses through what could be a potentially tough winter. We are currently running a Crowdfunder during which we aim to raise £7000 to buy two lorries of hay (1000 bales), provide essential veterinary treatments for the horses, and carry out much needed maintenance on our old fencing and field shelters in preparation for wind, rain, hail and snow.

Every donation of any size is so greatly appreciated. If you would like to help us on our way to our goal please visit our JustGiving page to find out more and donate.

We are also incredibly grateful to anyone who shares our story with new people – there are many out there who are still unaware of the existence of this rare, special and significant breed. We now have a Facebook page, Friends of the Skyrian Horse – like and follow us to receive updates about life on the farm and the project’s progress!

Thank you for your support!
