About Campaignends 13 Dec 2017, 11:59 PM
Tata is a beautiful and playful 13 year old grey horse. Originally a Polo Pony, Tata later went on to the Singapore Jurong Bird Park where he was part of a demonstration featuring a Mongolian Falconer on horseback with a Batelur eagle. However, Tata slowly developed a lower leg suspensory ligament strain injury, which resulted in him having to stop work. If Tata did not find other forms of work, he would have to be put down.
Thus, In November 2016, Tata officially joined the EQUAL-ARK herd as its latest Equine partner. Tata played a role in the various intervention programs by helping vulnerable youths remain engaged in the community through education and employment, through a philosophy of equine-assisted learning. The youths include those who are not in school or employment. Tata's other friends include Astro, a retired race horse; Costera and Valentina, ex polo ponies; Caterpillar and Ribena, Haflingers from Germany; and Kary, an ex-riding school pony.
Tata needs to recover first. If not, it will cause further strain and stress to the leg, which can result in lameness. Currently, Tata is not able to do too vigorous exercise or play with his friends!
All donations go towards:
- Medical needs for Tata: Monthly $75 Pentosan shots (life-long)
- Stable necessities for Tata and friends
- Supporting youths that Tata and his friends work with in the intervention program
