Sponsor a Horse

We currently have 18 therapy horses here in Tauranga.
Our annual horse sponsorship costs $2,500 and helps covers the costs associated with the training and caring of our valuable equine partners.
If you are interested in sponsoring a horse, let us know by emailing us on fund@taurangarda.co.nz or calling on (07) 544 1899.
We'd love you to be part of our sponsors team!
