Rockley has become steadily busier and busier over the last few years. We are full and have a waiting list pretty much year round; as one horse goes home, another is usually on a lorry on the way here ready to take that place.
Its wonderful to have so many horses and owners coming to us but I am aware that there are owners who aren't able to send their horses here, however much they or their vets might want to. This post is for them and is also my way of trying to say thank you to all of you who have supported us over the years.
Basically, the scholarship is a way of giving one owner the chance to send their horse here for rehab for a much reduced charge. The aim, of course, is to give an opportunity to someone who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford it.
We will be offering the rehabilitation completely free but will be asking for contribution towards livery costs - this is just a way of ensuring that whoever has the scholarship is as committed to the process as we are!
As usual, veterinary consent will be a prerequisite and the scholarship will only be open to horses who have a navicular or DDFT related lameness.
I will be posting full details, including all you need to know about dates and how to apply, within the next fortnight so please hang fire till you've seen and read that post!
