Christmas Charity Ball

We are delighted to announce our very first Olivia's Special Horses Christmas Charity Ball which will be held on Friday 9th December 2016 at the Pillo Hotel, Ashbourne, Co Meath. This is the first time we have organised such an event and we are all very excited about it as we are sure it will be a fabulous night to get us all in the festive spirit. We open our invitation to all of you and would love to see as many of you as possible at our ball. What could be better than having a fantastic night and also supporting a great charity! Tickets are €75 per person or tables of 10 for €700. The ticket price includes a cocktail reception, delicious 5 course meal, Las Vegas style games, interactive quiz with spot prizes, DJ until 2am and a few other surprises on the night.

Kentstown Rovers

We had a great day at the Kentstown Rovers Charity Legends event. We met some great people. We'd like to say a massive THANK YOU to Martin Holohan and his team for inviting us to attend as one of their chosen charities and for the €750 raised for Olivia's Special Horses. The day was a great success and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.


We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to the staff from the Dundalk and Dublin eBay offices for all their help. These wonderful people took on the monster task of clearing our Sensory Trail and painting gates and walls. As many of you will have seen, the Sensory Trail had grown out of control and desperately needed to be cut back. eBay are also very kindly donating €250 to put towards new toys for the Sensory Trail.

Everybody's hard work certainly paid off and we are absolutely thrilled with the results. Such a great bunch of people.

Dress Swap in The D Hotel

The D Hotel in Drogheda is kindly hosting a Dress Swap Night in aid of Olivia’s Special Horses on Tuesday 28th June @ 6.30pm.

How the Dress Swap works:

Each person donates 5 items of wearable clothing (including children's) shoes, bags or purses and pays a €10 fee for the night.

On the night you have a good old rummage through everybody's wares and choose 5 items for free. It's a cheap and fun way of getting a couple of new outfits.

Clothes being donated for the event can be dropped to the Olivia’s Special Horses yard. If you are not able to drop them off, we can organise for them to be collected. It is essential we have all items by 24th June to allow time to organise the clothing for the night. For more information or to arrange your clothes drop off or collection call Susan 086 061 7393

The bar will be open from 6:30pm - 11:30pm and there will be a raffle on the night. For those of you driving the D Hotel will validate your parking.

It's going to be a great night, please come along and support us.

VHI Women’s Mini Marathon Dublin

A massive Thank You to all the lovely ladies who took part in this year’s VHI Women’s Mini Marathon. We had runners and walkers all raising much needed funds for Olivia’s Special Horses. It was a great day out; we plan to make this an annual event so keep those legs moving for next year’s marathon when we hope more women (and men!) will join us.

Mini Muckers Challenge

Well if the adults can do it so can the kids, we had over 30 children take part in the mini muckers challenge for Olivia’s Special Horses, any excuse to role in the mud! A great personal achievement with some kids completing two laps of the 2.5KM course, a fun day out for all!

Thank You from all the team at Olivia’s Special Horses.

Run-a-Muck Challenge

A BIG Thank You to all who took part in this year’s run-a-muck challenge, especially the team from Senshaper Athlone who raised over €500 for Olivia’s Special Horses.

Any excuse to get down and dirty!
