A major capital appeal helped the Charity to buy the IHWT farm in October 2008 where it is currently caring for more than 60 equines. Residents at the farm include rescued thoroughbred horses and ponies of various types, sizes and ages, along with 14 ex-racehorses which are in a special programme to be retrained for re-homing having completed their racing careers.

In 2005 the first online auction was very successful and in the region of €170,000 gross was raised, in 2009 more than €75,000 was raised and this time it is hoped to raise even more.  Despite the current financial climate, everyone involved with the IHWT is optimistic that the target can be reached.   

*Items can still be accepted during the auction – if you like to donate an item, please contact Avril Perrin
