Why Sponsor a Horse

Over the years some animals have inevitably become permanent residents of The Gambia Horse and Donkey Trust. By sponsoring one of the horses in our care, you will not only be allowing your chosen animals to live a comfortable and happy life, but where possible, they can be useful running errands for the charity or providing therapy for the disabled.

How Much Does It Cost?

The sponsorship fee is 3 per month and you will receive a Sponsor Certificate, details of the horse you decide to sponsor, a picture and updates throughout the year (sent at Valentine’s Day, during the Summer and at Christmas) on the horse's progress. Subject to minimum 12 months sponsorship.

Sole Animal Sponsorship - If you would like to be a Sole Animal Sponsor, the fee is 40 per month. With this sponsorship choice, the chosen animal will be solely sponsored by yourself and not shared with anyone else. This Sponsorship is available on a “first come, first served” basis, so please contact the GHDT Office to discuss availability.

How Do I Sponsor?

Don't forget to indicate which animal you would like to sponsor and also whether you would like to receive information and updates about your chosen animal by post or via email.

(We hope to add more Horses for sponsorship soon)



BULLET - Bullet was brought to the GHDT with a hole in his head which had broken the bone so that his sinus was open. We had to somehow try and close it as the dusty atmosphere would enter the hole and cause endless infections and pain for him.

Successive vets tried their very best for him but we could not get the last little bit closed up and stitches would not hold well as there was no bone below it. Time, Mother Nature and persistence on the part of our volunteer vets and staff paid off and it is now completely closed.
However, we had another problem, Bullet became hyper sensitive and refused to be caught or handled after all the trauma he had been through.

The staff went out of their way to deal with him sympathetically so he could try and go home with no risk of retribution for his "bad behaviour". The plan was working well and Bullet started to become a calm and well-behaved boy again but his owner had lost his nerve with him after the accident and could not handle him. He continues to have behavioural problems with people he does not know or trust so he has remained with GHDT.
