Cranleigh RDA is completely self-supporting, relying on fundraising to run the stables at an average cost of £50,000 per year. Our volunteers and instructors are unpaid, giving their time and expertise freely.
Most people know that ponies are very expensive to run. We have all the usual costs e.g. bedding/hay, shoes, vaccinations, tack etc., and many additional costs associated with the management of our sizeable site. The fields have to be harrowed and fertilised, fences repaired, and we have to pay for insurances and licenses and pay our Stable Manager.
We hope that this scheme will not only raise money and awareness but also give adopters pleasure and interest.
