Fundraising

Monthly Donations

Windsor Horse Rangers is a registered charity, a non-profit making organisation and as such we rely totally on monthly donations to make sure we can pay for our horses feed bills, vet bills, farrier costs and the correct tack. Our funds are also used for farm maintenance. Any extra equipment which we need (and this includes new horses and ponies) has to be paid for by fundraising.  A good example of this is our menage. We raised a massive £20,000  to get this professionally built and since its completion has been extensively used and is the main riding facility for Rangers when they come on a Saturday and Sunday.  Our new stables were also paid for by internal fundraising and grants.

New Tack room/tractor shed

Our major fund-raising project at the moment is raising funds to replace our very dilapidated tack room and tractor shed buildings with one purpose built building.  We have a target of £110,000 to raise.  Any fund-raising ideas would be gratefully received!

Amazon Smile

We are now part of Amazon Smile so whenever you buy something on Amazon, we can get 0.5% of the payment, as long as you have entered Amazon via https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/1115854-0  You then search for Windsor Horse Rangers Limited and once you have clicked on us the first time, you will continue to raise money for us each time you shop.  Simples!

Amazon Wish List

We have created a wish list on Amazon which you can find by searching Windsor Horse Rangers under the wish lists option.  We will add items which we need and if anyone is feeling generous and fancies buying something for us you can pick an item off the wish list, pay for it and it will be delivered to the farm!  Please do remember to shop via Amazon Smile!
