A few weeks ago I asked for your help in choosing a charity, so we can contribute and support the horse community we love so much. What better time to start a new sponsorship than in December! With the holiday season upon us, Christmas inspiring the best in us and reminding us to be grateful for what we have and pay it forward.
The charity I have chosen is Amanda Vella’s Save A Horse Australia - https://saveahorse.org.au/. SAHA is a Queensland based charity, started in 2001 and officially registered as a charity in 2009. They are committed to take in unwanted, neglected, abused and slaughter bound horses, rehabilitate them and find them a forever home.
Follow their Facebook page to see all the good they do, day in day out. Pictures of before and after rescue say more than a thousand words. With 3 sanctuaries in South East Queensland they save so many unwanted horses and give them a second chance in life. Their regular updates get you involved in their rescue horses; each with their own story to tell but most of them with a happy ending!
As a young girl, I dreamt of spending every day in the stables, working with horses in one way or another. Now, I found the next best thing which for me is selling horse gear. Not everyone can rescue horses and provide them with a second chance. Some of us have to support the heroes that do this hard work day after day. Therefore, EUR Equestrian will do its best to sell plenty of products each month, so we can donate a fixed percentage of each months’ profits to SAHA.
I encourage everyone to have a look at this wonderful organisation, like their page, follow their inspiring stories and maybe even find your next soulmate in one of their adoptable horses.
