Set up your Monthly Adoption

Adoptions are a great way to support the ongoing work of HorseWorld in supporting your new friend and providing care for all the horses, ponies, donkies and other animals we look after.

Prefer to make a one-off adoption payment?


Adopt Burdock for £2.00 per month.

After Burdock was rescued it was discovered that he has a heart murmur and so would never be ridden. He is the only Shetland pony in the Discovery team.

He is a fun cheeky little pony, who is very popular with the students. He is very good to be handled, groomed and long reigned and also for obstacle training. However he has been known to wander off to the hay barn or grass verge for a quick snack with an unsuspecting student in tow, but only occasionally.

You will receive:

  1. A cuddly version of your favourite animal in a presentation gift box.
  2. A colourful certificate detailing your chosen animal’s story.
  3. Regular updates on your adopted animal’s progress.
  4. Opportunities to visit your animal at HorseWorld on open days.
  5. A double sided keyring & photograph.
