2020 at Cavalli Foundation started off extremely well. Kevin and Catherine from the Clover Bar, Condado de Alhama brought their donation towards our Crowdfunding Campaign to help build our new Refuge for Abandoned Horses. The takings from their Christmas Raffle added up to 815€. Amazing!
Between New Year and Three Kings we had another brilliant camp for our young riders. There were loads of fun things on the agenda and an early visit from the Kings to bring them all surprises.
Our Therapy Sessions with Early Riding III started when the children had gone back to school and the mentally ill people from AFEMTO came back mid-month. We’ve seen surprising success in the recuperation of these people. One overweight chap lost 30 kilos in order to be able to ride and another, who was totally wrapped up in his own world, antisocial and introverted, turned into a happy, cheerful leader of the group after a couple of days’ riding.
Luisa, the little brown hen that was attacked and badly injured by a fox or a wild dog, was operated on and is now fully recovered. She and Nevado are both well and happy together.
We’ll be holding a second Fundraising Fair which will be a Carnival Solidarityevent organised by our Pony Club kids on Sunday 16th February. You will all be able to meet the dogs we’ve got up for adoption.
As we’ve got Half Term Holidays coming up this month there will be plenty of horse riding activities going on with Pony Club mornings and Carnival Camp.
