Grove Lodge has adopted a horse from Ferring Country Centre!Posted by Abigail on Thursday 28th of October 2010
Check out Smartie who we have adopted for a year from Ferring Country Centre – what a handsome boy!
Smartie is a skewbald horse (brown and white patches) with a lovely kind nature and beautiful face. He is 15 years old and lives at Ferring Country Centre near Worthing where he helps children and adults from the local community with learning difficulties or disabilities learn to ride. This can help improve their self esteem and coordination enormously but as it costs in the region of £3,000 a year to keep a horse, the Centre always needs sponsors for their animals.
I will be bringing you regular updates about Smartie during the coming year. In the meantime, why not visit him at the Centre? They have a garden centre, cafe and regular plant sales – check out their website for upcoming events.
