In order to help more people Gul needs to improve its riding arena, the first step of which is ensuring its users can ride ALL YEAR ROUND.

New stretch target

Gul has reached its goal in two weeks! Our next goal aims to improves what we can offer to our users. We set a Stretch goal of £5000 to let us invest in new equipment such as Laptops for the staff to allow them to work more effectively (bear in mind Gul is based in a rural farm setting, so there is a distinct lack of basics such as power and Wi-Fi over the majority of our sites) As always any money received will be spent on physical items with the aim of making lives of our users better.

Gul's vision is a simple one: to help as many people improve their well being as possible.

Gul has done this since 2006 and each year we grow and reach more and more people through activities and support in the outdoors. in 2020 Gul supported over 400 people and in 2021 as our communities are still reeling from the impact of COVID we are set support even more.


Gul's activities typically use horses and ponies for therapeutic sessions at on of our 5 (soon to be 6) sites across the UK but we also use other animals such as goats and activities such as Gardening, outdoor play, navigation, bush craft and outreach.

This project is centred around Guls Wiltshire site Riverside and its aim is to renovate out main riding arena built in 2012 upgrading its surface with improved drainage and rebuilding all its timber to give us something we can use all year round.


Gul has successfully raised £5600 towards this and needs a further £5000 to complete the works, it will be running several fundraisers through the year as soon as we can open to the public and several of our team are already hard at work  doing challenges to push this number as high as we can get it.
