HAPPA (Horses and Ponies Protection Association) is a Registered Charity. We aim to continually strive to improve and promote equine welfare through Rescue, Rehabilitation, Rehoming and Education.
Every equine taken into our care is placed on a bespoke rehabilitation plan in order to provide a Second Chance in a loving Forever Home.
Two of our recent rehabilitation graduates, HAPPA Frosty and Spaniel, are ready to be rehomed, however, due to their shape we are struggling to find them a saddle each that fits, this means that both ponies will need bespoke saddles made to ensure that their comfort under saddle is not compromised.
HAPPA ensures that all rideable equines are matched with their Forever Homes with a correct and fitted saddle, as our duty of care to the equine.
It costs between £650-£1000 for a master saddler to measure, make and fit a bespoke saddle. Saddles kindly donated by members of the public are predominantly correctly fitted to resident equines, however, in this case we are unable to find saddles to fit the ponies comfortably. We are prudent with our income and manage funds conservatively.
We are appealing because of the unusual nature of these two delightful ponies. Both have a confirmation which requires a specially designed, bespoke saddle.
We need you to help us meet this target then both ponies can complete their journey and find them a Forever Home.
Please donate today, or if you can't donate share this story, and help us to meet our target for these two rescued animals and help them have their HAPPA ending...
