Donations and Sponsorship

To ensure a world where every horse is properly protected and cared for by us is without a doubt a tremendous task.    Please help us to care for them, for a better future, for everyone who dreams of that task in taking on a rehabilitated and retrained equine, the ultimate achievement.    We have the opportunities to make a real difference with your help and the expertise of our volunteers.    The donations you make are vital to our work in supporting the project teams in their work with these equines.   Making sure the correct feeding régime is put into place for equine.   Making a donation will allow us to do more to improve the lives of horses and ponies brought to us for help.  

During this time they will need shoeing, feeding, bedding, worming, rugs, veterinary care, physiotherapy treatment and just so much more.   The list is endless; therefore this is where your support is greatly needed
.   For example YOUR donation will help towards their future:-

£14.00 will buy a bag of feed
£12.00 will help buy vitamins
£70.00 will buy a set of shoes
£100.00 will replace old turnout and stable rugs or make a huge dent in our monthly winter hay bill

Recent News from our Treasurer, Mr Stewart Murray.   I am delighted to be able to advise that HMRC have written to confirm that they have now recognised Horse Rescue Scotland as a charity for tax purposes in line with the 2010 Finance Act.   This is effective from 3rd October 2013.  HMRC have also confirmed that, for tax purposes, Horse Rescue Scotland is a charitable company.  

A larger donation could mean the next horse will not be turned away.

If you are able to help in any way, become a "Friend of Horse Rescue Scotland" and make a difference. For gifting on a regular basis get in touch and arrange a standing order from your bank using the details below.   One off payments by cheque are also gratefully received and should be made payable to “Horse Rescue Scotland” and should be sent to:-

Once rehabilitated and retrained you the re-homer will get much more from your relationship with them.

30th September - An update from our new Treasurer

Dear All,
I hope you are all well.
I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself, I am Penny McIntyre and I have recently taken on the role of Treasurer for Horse Rescue Scotland. I am really looking forward to meeting you all as we continue to support the critical work of Horse Rescue Scotland.
I did have the opportunity to meet a number of our fantastic volunteers at the open day last weekend and what a brilliant day it was - I thoroughly enjoyed myself. It was great to meet our new Gelding who was named 'Buddy',  thanks to the name the gelding competition. We had a raffle, beautiful painted and decorated horse shoes (all of which previously belonged to Horse Haven horses), a cake stall, loom band crafts and wobble walks, which were all available on the day. We have also been collecting clothes for 'cash for clothes' collections and as a result of all your efforts we have to date managed to raise £715.
It is our volunteers that make Horse Rescue Scotland so successful and because of you we have already rescued 3 horses since the charity became registered at the beginning of the year; but we need more help.....So how can you get more involved?
There are lots of ways that you can help Horse Rescue Scotland raise essential funds to support the important work that we are undertaking.
We need help with the horses themselves and a number of you have been really hands on and absolutely fantastic with the support you have given - so a huge thanks. But I am really aware that not everyone can give or is qualified to support in this way and thank goodness because we have lots of other important and critical work that needs to be undertaken, including writing funding applications, communications and fundraising. We have already had some fantastic support in setting up the website, donations of rugs and tack and fundraising activities from our volunteers, including sponsored walks, ice bucket challenges and loom band sales. There are just far to many of you all to thank in this short e-mail.
As volunteers you are our ambassadors - you can tell people about the fantastic work we are all doing, you can introduce our charity to your friends and families and you can encourage others to volunteer to help with our charity - the more the merrier and the more opportunity we have to utilise people's skills ( and not just hands on horse experience).
As volunteers you can help with fundraising - why not do a sponsored event with your family and friends to raise money for Horse Rescue Scotland. I would love to hear your ideas and suggestions about how we can raise more essential funds for Horse Rescue Scotland and you can e-mail me at with all of these - I am really looking forward to hearing from you!
Simple things such as liking or sharing our face book page and posts and following us on twitter will help us to widen the number of people who are aware of the work we are undertaking and may hopefully encourage other people to get involved or donate. In fact you could help right away with this, as we have today launched our online silent auction. The details of our first lot, which is a winter season ticket for Lochview Family Golf Centre/ Palacerigg Golf Course, are on the Horse Rescue Scotland website, our Facebook and Twitter pages; please share these and encourage your friends and family to bid. There are more fantastic lots to come throughout October, so please keep an eye out and keep sharing. We also have a pair of lady Gaga tickets advertised for sale on Gum tree, again all the links are on social media so share, share, share as all these awesome items have been donated to the charity and as such every penny goes to helping Summer, Zara and Buddy and horses like them.
Viewing and sharing our youtube videos also raises money for our charity, as does easyfundraising - all you need to do is register at their website ( and when you or your family or friends are shopping online with their associated retailers the charity receives donations. Again all of these links are on our social media sites.
I will be sending you all regular updates on what is going on, so that you can keep up to date on what is happening in the Horse Rescue Scotland family and find out about opportunities where you can help and get more involved.
Thank you to all of you on behalf of Summer, Zara and Buddy - without your continued support none of it would be possible.
I will be in touch very soon with more details of how you can get involved, but in the meantime please do e-mail me with your ideas, suggestions and fundraising activities.
I look forward to seeing you very soon and working with you all in the future.

The benefit to us is that it allows us to plan for the future. Having a regular income stream from our direct debit donor’s means that we can plan ahead with confidence. By making a regular gift to the Horse Rescue Scotland, you can help us in so many ways:

  • Helping our team make a difference to the lives of the thousands of horses and ponies we help each year by ensuring that owners are fully informed of their current statutory rights, educated about their animal’s needs
