Sponsor a Pony – Christmas Appeal 2020

Our Christmas Appeal offers our friends an opportunity to help keep Muirfield Riding Therapy’s service secure. Contributing to funding the care of our specially trained therapy ponies will help guarantee our life-changing therapeutic riding sessions in the months and years ahead. Please consider becoming Heather’s pony sponsor this Christmas.

If you would like to sponsor Heather this Christmas, see our sponsor packages below.


Name: Heather, Born: 2000, Arrived at MRT: 2018, Gender: Mare, Height: 15hh, Breed: Connemara, Colour: Grey Dun

Hello everyone, I really love it here at MRT and felt at home really quickly. It’s like I’ve been here all my life! My full name (called my Show name) is actually Shanna Heather, which I also really love.

My field mates are Johnny and Calllie, and the three of us get on very well.

I enjoy being pampered and especially getting cuddles from my Riders. When I’m not doing my important riding therapy work, I like to relax by going on hacks round the farm.  I love it when I can have a good stretch of my legs up the stubble fields.  My Sharer has entered me into some of MRT’s Winter Series Show Jumping events, and I’ve been quite successful if I do say so myself, I was reserve-champion in 2019!

Our Coaches say:
Heather is a lovely girl who knows her job well.  Due to her size we use her mostly for tall teen and adult riders. Heather has done lots of jumping in her younger days and is well schooled so we are able to ask her to do lots of things.

Our riders and volunteers say:
“She is my favourite horse at MRT!” (Ellen)

“She’s a total sweetheart, such a cuddle bug” (Deborah)
