Let Us Help You Choose Gifts That Make a Difference This Christmas

6th December 2022

We are offering a novel way to support us this Christmas.

By purchasing our Gift Cards With a Difference you make the work we do possible, on behalf of someone else – helping stretch the finances this festive season.

Bransby Horses Maria Thompson said: “We know things are tough right now and just want to let our supporters know they can buy a gift of warmth, food or wellbeing – for any of our residents – as a gift card to give at Christmas.

“It means they can donate to us on behalf of someone they know would appreciate the gesture.”

Buying a Bransby Horses Gift Card with a Difference is a great way to help horses like Gerald.

He was found by worried members of the public collapsed in a ditch with maggots and lice all over his legs.

He was rescued by a near-by branch of the RSPCA who then signed him over to Bransby Horses for the long term specialist care he needed.

Rescued from any immediate danger, the two-year-old colt’s problems were far from over.

As well as advanced liver disease and severe dental problems he also needed a blood transfusion.

Bransby Horses Welfare Manager Rachel Jenkinson said: “Despite his issues Gerald showed a real determination to get better. His conditions were difficult to treat as he had multiple issues but despite being close to death – he pulled through on more than one occasion.

“He’s a lovely pony and the team who work with him are very fond of him.”

Gerald’s case highlights the long-term investment required to fully care for horses and ponies in need.

Rescuing animals like Gerald is just the start of the story and the lifetime of treatment and care they need is possible only with donations from members of the public.

Gift Cards With a Difference enable us to continue to care for Gerald and hundreds like him.

We have over 1000 equines in our care, making us one of the UK’s largest equine welfare charities.

Every gift card purchased provides essential care to these equines.
