Thank you from the Horse Shepherd team

Now that the team is a little rested following our brilliant open day yesterday, we thought it fitting to do a more comprehensive “thank you” to those who made it possible.
We loved every minute of our Open Day; an opportunity to showcase the Sanctuary we love; almost as much as we love those who live here. It was also an important fundraising event for HSES, with a much-needed $2,332.10 raised- how incredible!! (And 48 bags of horse feed)However, what was absolutely priceless for us was the opportunity for our supporters to see what we do at HSES, and the resoundingly positive feedback we received from attendees. We are grounded by the principles of good governance, transparency, sound ethics, and with the best interests of all our horses (and other animals) being our unwavering, uncompromising, number one priority. In a day and age where animal welfare charities are – rightfully – under unprecedented scrutiny, it has given us tremendous joy to have built such a wonderful community of supporters, and to finally share a glimpse of our work with so many of you. It is hard to put into words the gratitude we feel for the support from every one of you; but we hope you now appreciate how vital you have been in assisting with the growth and success of HSES to date, and into the future.
We would like to thank the following companies, organisations, and individuals for their support on the day, including practical assistance, promotion, and donation of goods and services. Please show them your support, too!
