The Horse Boy Foundation's mission - to end the notion that suffering is necessary for learning - has touched many hearts and lives; and frankly could not exist or continue without the support of our incredibly generous and big-hearted donors. Without you we could not do this. With you we are already reaching more than 25,000 families a week and rising. With your continued support we can reach our goal of 1,000,000 families receiving our Foundation's services and by extension creating a seismic shift in how therapy and education are conceived, designed, and delivered. 

The following is a list of our most active supporters. We also want to thank the thousands of smaller donors that also help us to advance this much needed mission as we look towards training the leaders of tomorrow.

2018 Initiative

We are currently re-writing the secondary school (13 to 16 year) math and science curriculum for kinetic learning in partnership with Professor Alred Zieglerm University of Osnabrueck, Germany. These modules and lesson plans will be made available for schools, home schoolers, and parents online and through live workshops, both for special and general ed. Help us revolutionize the current learning system and train the leaders of tomorrow. Find out more under current activities.

Monetary Donations

Donations, to help us help families facing neuro-psychiatric crisis at our various centres, is always desperately needed. Also donations to help our centres with staff, horse and general running costs are also constantly needed. 

  • £10 donation buys a bag of horse feed at one of our equine therapy centres. 
  • £25 art supplies for kinetic learning sessions (this is our most used and replaced resource)
  • £50-£70 buys a round bale of hay that feeds 2 horses for a month 
  • £75 buys a family a Horse Boy or Movement Method session 
  • £150 buys a family a training in Movement Method so that they can learn to implement their own therapies at home
  • £250 sends our team into a school to give teachers an intro to Movement Method
  • £500 trains an equine therapist in Horse Boy Method
  • £1000 send a whole family to a 3 day overnight Horse Boy Method and Movement Method camp



Any donation large and small is much appreciated. Even more effective is to choose to donate a small amount monthly as continued giving. Many of our larger supporters run matching grant challenges through out the year, so your donation is likely to be doubled. Also check with your employer as many larger employers offer donation matching for their employees. Please click here to donate now. You can also send us a cheque to:
