It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Madissa Asgari. As the daughter of Skylarks’ charity founder, Anne-Marie Asgari, we would like to honour Madissa’s life by paying tribute to the difference she has made in her life. Our Tribute

Visit to Mane Chance horse sanctuary near Farnham to hug a horse

We are delighted to be working with Mane Chance horse sanctuary near Farnham in Surrey.

This is a therapeutic rest home for horses, where children and young people can come to spend time in a calm and nurturing environment.

We are inviting children to take part in their Share a Shettie days.

Come and spend the day with our smallest ponies!

Our Share a Shettie experience is a lovely opportunity to spend time with a young friend or family member whilst caring for our delightful Shetland pony herd.

Children and their accompanying adult will become a ‘groom for the day’ for the Shetlands – poo picking the fields, grooming, exercising and feeding the ponies with a couple of small maintenance tasks too. It’s a wonderful hands-on way to learn how we care for our horses at Mane Chance – we are not sure who enjoys it the most – the ponies or the visitors!

The farm is located just outside Guildford in Surrey, nestled between the Hogsback and the A3 in the village of Compton. 

Please note, you will need to be able to drive your family to the farm. We will give detailed instructions and meet you there.

We hope in future to be able to organise mini-bus trips there for families who don't have access to a car.

There is no riding involved - the horses at the sanctuary are never ridden.

Please also note, your child will need to wear a riding helmet for insurance purposes.
