About

Update!!! Lee arrived to us on the 21st of August and we are All over the moon to finally have our missing family member be reunited with us.
Your amazing help is what made this happen! Any further donations are assisting us to pay off the remaining amount of the total costs of his trip here.

Thank you ALL so very very much. You are so loved by us. Thank you!

16 years ago a Soul mate and very special horse entered my life. 8 years ago I had to make the painful decision to leave him behind when I was no longer able to keep my training stables open. I have since then leased him out to ensure I can keep him looked after and safe as well as hold on to the hope of one day him being reunited with me again.
Until now this has not been possible. Recently events became a concern and I decided I can't keep waiting for something to arise and I need to reach out for help. So here it is -
This fundraiser is to cover the flight costs and transportation of Lee from Melbourne, Australia to Rome, Italy where I now live with my partner and our 3 children.
Lee is only 23 and is extremely good health with no problems. He himself has tuned in with me and my dear animal communicator friend that he is ready and wants to go.

Sue from EIAF has reassured that they have flown multiple horses over the age of 25 with no problems and they have recovered and been fine on arrival.

As someone who has worked with expats in foreign countries all over the world, that have had their beloved horses flown to and back to their home countries without problems or concerns, I am really grateful to the people who have seen the light, the opportunity and the joy of us all being reconnected and Lee getting to spend out his many older years with his family.

Any amount you are able to add to this will be going towards giving this very special horse his wish and ours, of being part of our family again. He has helped countless people with not only their riding growth but their mental, emotional and spiritual growth and over the years has touched the lives of everyone who knew him.

Anything is felt,
Everything is appreciated,
Sharing this will be the same as a donation.

Thank you to everyone who has known Lee over the years, your love, care and support were felt by us both and I know he sends his love to you all!!

This is for my horse Lee to be able to join me in our new home country of Italy. We are not able to pay for his flight here and it has been an ongoing challenge to ensure he is taken care of in Australia. Thank you everyone who is helping Lee get to his family!!!

I am sure you can't wait to see Lee. I realise that funding will be needed to cover his expenses for a while, and hope that more people find it in their hearts to help you. I thank you for trying to make a difference in an often cruel and thoughtless world. You do make a difference! I am still sharing. Bless you all.

Catherine, I learned of your effort to bring Lee home from my sweet friend, Julie Dingley. I want to help you bring her back to you and I hope that this small gesture contributes with those of others to ensure your long awaited reunion with Lee. "Horse Girls" everywhere need little explanation of why one would work so hard to be reunited with her soulmate horse. I know. Wishing you a safe transport and a joyful reunion. I would be honored to meet you one day.
