The Outdoor Horse Arena Appeal
The Racehorse Rescue Centre is 100% volunteer run and provides free programmes to disadvantaged groups in the community such as ‘Horse Care’ and ‘Freedom To Ride’ for young teens and adults that are suffering from Trauma, Bullying, Depression, Self-Harming, Autism, PTSD, ADHD, FASD etc. These programmes are a lifeline and much sort after and are all run from our arena.
We also need to retrain the horses and exercise them in the arena.
Our arena was flooded early 2015 and with an offer from Cumbrian Probation Services and the Payback Team along with volunteers from a drainage company, they cleared the surface and dug out deep channels to lay drainage and filled in with hardcore.
We are now left with materials needed to surface it. 60 tons of pea gravel and 100 cubic metres of all weather equine fibre at £40 per cube. We can not run our programmes until the arena is complete. so we need your help today.
