Why ?

In March 2020 , the  borders have closed,  following the COVID-19 health crisis.  All our hikes were on hold, until August 2021 . So we no longer had any cash flow. But thanks to you, we managed to last a year and a half without income!  Sponsorships, donations, various aids... it was incredible! Today we need you again: the borders closed again on November 28, 2021.

All horse enthusiasts know that our equine companions continue to need care and demand a lot of expense. We estimate the cost of food (barley, maize, bran, alfalfa), bedding (barley straw), deworming and farriery at €120/month/horse . Not to mention all the energy, time and pick-up trips to take care of our horses. 

Our company is still in its infancy, we fought to get where we are because we left empty-handed... and today, everything is in danger of collapsing with the crisis. It would be a total heartbreak to have to part with our horses. The crisis lets us imagine the worst scenario. Which would we let go first? What an awful question. Where would they go? I fear the worst for them, if we were to part with them... 

That's why we're calling on you! Since 2015, Amazir Cheval has helped build a wonderful community around horses and travel. Many of you have repeated to us: "we will not let you down". A ball of hope shines, so we try everything!

We decided to open a sponsorship for our horses, which are the priority for us. 

Then, for those who wish, it is possible to contribute to the various renovations and fittings of our stable, always with the aim of improving the lives of our horses. 

Finally, you can also tip the team. So far, we have sent them some money every month, but it is getting difficult.  I remind you that the first objective is the horses.

Animals arriving after August 2020

When the sponsorship goal for our horses was exceeded in August 2020 , we dedicated the surplus to other animals in need. At the end of 2020, donations decreased and since then we have been under our sponsorship goal.

Nostress is a horse that we often took  hiking and that we appreciate a lot, since the beginnings of Amazir Cheval. For unknown reasons, its owner has decided to put it up for sale. We got him back emaciated and with a kind of knurling on his forelegs. We hope to take good care of him,  get it back in shape.

Welcome Ourstress!

Flippo is a little donkey of about 2 years old. Brahim bought it at the souk for a pittance. He is one of the many donkeys in the Essaouira region to suffer from the drought and the crisis. When he arrived, he was thin and weak. We also hope to get him back in shape and give him a quiet little life in the stable.

Welcome Flippo!

Amoudou arrived at the stable in October 2021.

The borders had been open since June, reservations were skyrocketing... Then, at the end of November, the borders closed for a third time... We are not certain of keeping this horse unfortunately, for financial reasons, especially with this new closing of the borders... He is a beautiful horse, promising, very nice and with a beautiful morphology. It would be a miracle to be able to keep it...!  

1) Participation in stable work

We have been building a stable for several years to improve the living conditions of our horses. Before, Saphir and Mistral lived near the goats, in a closed place. They lived for a while  tied outside, too. As soon as we had the means, we started the work. Here is a presentation of the progress, follow-up of future projects and funding needs. Some are urgent, and if the borders continue to be closed, we will not be able to fund them. Here is a small slideshow  taking up the construction of our stable, which we have financed ourselves until today, with our small means:

juin 2018.jpeg

Once upon a time...

In June 20 18, Brahim inherited this piece of land. Very quickly, he began to dream of a stable...

Here is the work we have already done thanks to all your donations ( €3,860.00 ; see details here )

✔ Build a room with a kitchenette and a toilet

✔ Build a waterproof roof over the boxes

✔ Finish building the tack room and the 6th boxing

✔ Build paddock barrier and consolidate fences

✔ Buy 3 more jerry cans

✔ Build a stall for the 2 donkeys  

  Prepare the ground in case of rain: gutter and paving  

✔ plant trees, create a small garden

Here is the work that we still have to do ( 80 collected  ; see details here )

1) Install electricity at the ranch (urgent)

2) Install a water pump for running water  

3 Set up a chicken coop and a hutch

4) Continue the vegetable garden, plant trees, create a small garden

5) Build a 2nd living room (bedroom/living room)

6) Consolidate the fodder shelter

7) Build 3 new boxes

2) Sponsor the team

Our team is tightening its belt to get through the crisis, hoping for better days... We need a minimum to survive.  

If you want to support us, you can also "sponsor" them! The SMIG being at 300€/month, we set the objective at 1200€.

The priority is to pay the accommodation costs for the team and their meals .

Then, we dream of offering them a salary because they work  every day with the horses, to feed them, take them out, look after them and clean the stable. They are also responsible for transporting fodder and barley to the stables (approx. 35km one way, 35km return). Brahim, Hamid and Mohamed also do the stable work. They buy the raw material and provide the labor themselves. Basically, Hamid is a welder. Together, they are very handy. Abdeslem (our cook) lives in a small village in Ouarzazate (400km from us), with his wife and 4 children.
