Help HEROS - please make a donation

HEROS is a charitable organisation and is reliant on the generosity of public donations to continue our work retraining and rehoming former racehorses. Any size of donation helps towards the rehabilitation, retraining and rehoming of ex-racehorses.

Grace Muir and her team at HEROS Charity work long and hard with the HEROS horses ensuring that the eventual new home provider has a friend for life in their HEROS horse. All donations directly benefit their wellbeing while in our care. Thank you for your support.

Support a Veteran Horse

Unfortunately our older horses are the hardest to re-home. 
Many of our ex-racehorses can and do live a useful and sound life well into their 20s. Often they are overlooked but in reality they have so much to offer – especially our companion horses. 

Our horses give us so much pleasure it is the decent and right thing to do to honour them through their old age. Please consider offering a forever home to one of our Veterans or donate towards thier upkeep until such time as they find a companion home.

Sponsor a veteran by committing to a regular monthly amount or one-off donation. A regular gift is so valuable to us, it helps us plan for the future of all our horses.

If you are looking for a companion horse why not consider something older from HEROS? Click here.

HEROS companion horses come with a clean bill of health – they just can’t be ridden. We never put a healthy horse down but we are not a sanctuary and desperately need to create places for the many horses on our waiting list who so badly need our help.

'Forget me Not' Garden – a Place to Remember

On December 27th each year we are reminded of the sad loss of MONSIGNOR, the original HEROS Ambassador. In his honour North Farm Stud and HEROS have joined together to use a piece of land as a Memorial Garden to pay tribute to his memory and all the other HEROS horses that have passed away.
Trees and wild flowers form a place for quiet reflection. You are welcome to donate towards planting a tree in memory of past HEROS horses, or indeed one of your own.

Gift Aid

HEROS Chairty can accept donations in several ways; whichever way you choose, please help us by using Gift Aid if you can. Under the Gift Aid scheme, charities can reclaim an extra 25% in tax on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer.

You just have to complete a declaration saying that you pay enough tax to cover what the charity will reclaim from HM Revenue & Customs.

And it gets better. If you pay tax at the higher rate, you can reclaim tax relief on your gross donation at 20% (i.e. the difference between the higher rate of tax at 40% and the basic rate at 20%). That means that for every pound you give away, you can get 20p back from the taxman – which you can keep, or give to charity. So the taxman could actually reward you for your generosity!

Leave a Lasting Legacy to HEROS

It costs thousands of pounds and can take months to rehabilitate horses, particularly those with injuries. Those with no physical problems need some time to rest, be assessed and trained for new disciplines that will suit them best and match their new keeper’s requirements.

There is no better way to show how much you care about these horses and their future than by leaving something to HEROS Charity in your Will. You do not have to be wealthy to help us improve their welfare. Even a small legacy can help us to give horses a happy useful life after racing.
