My name is Pride, and I work with my friends at the Riding for the Disabled Charity based in Nottinghamshire. On 18th August, my friends & I had a party in our field, but during our antics I suffered a nasty injury to my back leg. My lovely humans, who run our charity, called the vet to see me, and I had to go to the Veterinary hospital for emergency treatment. I admit I was very scared, and I missed my friends and humans, but the nurses and vets were truly kind and after a few days I came home with stitches and bandages. I am feeling sad because I cannot go out and join my friends in the field, and I have to rest in my stable. It still hurts but the local vet comes to see me, and my humans from the charity look after me well. My stitches have come out, but it will be a long time until I am fit enough to join my friends for fun in the fields again.
I heard my human family talking about the vet costs, they are waiting for the invoices but they will be more than £2500!! Apparently, ponies are not treated by the NHS! Please could you help us? Could you give some money towards my vet bills please? I would be very grateful, and I know the charity would be grateful too. I had a lovely card from one of my riders which I have included so you can see.
Thank you so much, PRIDE XXXX
