Play for ponies

Play our brand-new lottery today and help give ponies a brighter future.

You could be in with a chance of winning up to £25,000 and that’s not even the best part – you’ll be helping to provide lifelong, loving care and support to over 600 rescued horses and ponies.

The Mare and Foal Sanctuary rescues horses and ponies that have been abandoned, neglected or abused.

We ensure that horses and ponies have a safe sanctuary for life. Those with complex needs are cared for in our peaceful sanctuaries. We also have a network of knowledgeable carers who provide Sanctuary at Home.

Our charity was founded on the principles that horses and ponies, as sentient beings and close companions of humans over the centuries, have a value and a purpose. They deserve our kindness and care.

This is the place for people who want to make a difference to the lives of foals, horses and ponies.

Your £1 lottery ticket could help us:

  • Rescue foals, horses and ponies in urgent need.
  • Provide feed, bedding and hay to keep them healthy and comfortable.
  • Administer veterinary treatments and essential farrier care.

The best prize is helping ponies in need like Serena and Bunnie

Sisters Serena and Bunnie are two of our older miniatures. They are looked after by our specialist team who care for those horses and ponies with more intensive needs. Both of them require regular check-ups with our vets to help them manage their different conditions. Serena has Cushing’s disease and some dental issues, whereas Bunnie has a history of colic and dental problems as well as suspected sweet itch.

The twosome can often be found stabled together as they have such a strong bond with each other. They overnight in the fields with their friends but come in most days for some extra attention. The sisters are frequently found working with our Equine Assisted Learning team as they are both so good with people.

By playing our weekly lottery, we can be there for more ponies like Serena and Bunnie who have complex needs.
