Critical upgrade at KARELE

by Karele Equine in East Linton, Scotland, United Kingdom

We did it
On 5th January 2020 we successfully raised £3,055 with 22 supporters in 34 days

We witness daily the power of horses to change lives, but we need your help to fund critical upgrades of our facilities so we can continue.

New stretch target

Upgrading of the horse's  fields would become a second target .

KARELE supports children and young people with a wide range of different needs . We have created an atmosphere where horses and humans can come together and heal.

We are based by East Linton , East Lothian at Sunnyside Farm . Over the past 5 years we have had a social impact with the work we do with our horses . We give back the confidence , self esteem , resilience and empowerment children and young people lose through social bias . We give them skills that are transferable into everyday life .  

However our facilities are tired and need some attention. Our facilities are in need of a critical upgrade and we are focusing this crowdfunding on our riding arena and the fencing which is vital to keep the horses and humans safe.

KARELE  is a unique facility within the Lothian's that aims to engage and support people who face multiple exclusion. We offer a holistic therapeutic approach providing practical support alongside the promotion of well-being. Creativity is central to what we do and with each service offered we aim to build confidence, self-esteem and self-worth, treating each person with dignity and respect. 

EFAL ( equine facilitated activities and learning ) this is where we have time grooming , walking with our pony depending on the client's needs / abilities . We have had positive results with our users . This is where the individual learning takes place . It is different for everyone and this is when we introduce a reflective practice skill lead programme . KARELE is  “the right place at the right time with the right people” to connect and learn or heal or challenge .

We are in need of an upgrade to our menage , which has been hit hard this Autumn and is becoming a health issue . We need to drain and resurface the arene and replace the surrounding fence .
