    I was put in touch with sharon through mutual friends and I am so happy that I found her. I found myself in the unhappy position of having to rehome my lovely dog, through no fault of her own. Sharon and the charity have been wonderful. They have been so understanding and helped us through a really tough time. My dog now has a wonderful new home and this is all thanks to sharon and the team of people who worked so hard to help us.

    I met Sharon on a mutual Facebook group and she has been helping me over phone and message with my horse and her help has been amazing she is so thoughtful and understanding I have a cushings older horse and 2 young filly’s and sharons advice has been top notch I also have fibromyalgia and adhd so she was so patient and understanding of me explaining things and spent her time just to help so they don’t just help there own horses but even disabled owners with horses with issues that are new to the person I was stuck and lost and Sharon helped me calm down and understand better without even meeting me I can’t thank her enough or recommend her enough

    I met Sharon and the Katie's Cradle volunteers at the livery yard my daughter went to with her 2 horses, to say these guys are amazing is an understatement! Had first hand experience of watching them with their herd and the amazing way they have with these wonderful animals, not only do they look after their own but are happy to lend a hand to novice like me, iv learnt so much already from Sharon and the guys that iv taken on one of my daughters horses who has now moved to join the herd at Katie's Cradle and in just 48hrs I had a different more relaxed horse. These guys are amazing and deserve a lot more credit than they get for the dedication they have (sleeping in cars in the bad weather so they would be with the horses no matter what). Thank you Sharon, Shelby and Jamie for everything you do , I will always support use any way that I can as I know as a small charity life isn't easy financially for you. Love you guys and the work you do 💗 x

    I cannot give Katie's Cradle enough credit and thanks for everything they have done for not only the horse they took on but also for all of the support they have provided to my family through the most difficult time in our lives! Sharon is the nicest most genuine caring person I have ever met. In everything she does the animals welfare is always her first and main priority. We rescued a horse which was very timid and scared through no fault of his own but In fact previous owners. Due to personal circumstances we had to find homes for the horses fast and unfortunately no body was willing to take him on due to him being so Ferrell. Katie's cradle alrhough at their max capacity went over and above everyone and EVERYTHING else to secure him a safe place where he could live the rest of his days happy and part of a herd. Since becoming part of Katie's cradle he has come on so much and looks happy and healthy for the first time I have known. I am always kept up to date on his progress and will be forever in debt to Sharon and the team. Well done everyone! Myself, my mum and my siblings cannot praise and thank you enough xxx

    Before I joined Katie's Cradle I wasn't very confident and not very active much. But since I started voluntering my confidence has went up I've made friends with the people at Katie's Cradle. And I am much more active than I have ever been I am much more happier with my life and its all thanks to Katie's Cradle.

    I have been volunteering with Katie's Cradle for roughly 10 months now and I have loved every minute of it. We have had some good times, and some bad, but we fought through it and are now stronger because of them. I will continue to support this charity and I can't wait to see what the future holds.

    Having seen the horses in the care of Katie's Cradle on several occasions, now, it is clear that this project has had a truly amazing effect on the natures and behaviours of the horses.Sharon Taylor,
    whom I met only about 2 months ago continues to show a complete dedication to the betterment of her "guys" as she calls them, to the absolute detriment of her own situation.I don't know anyone I have
    ever met who displays such commitment- and her reward is the well-being of her "Guys"!

    I met Sharon through facebook when i saw posts about Lucien the asbo pony and friends. I started following their adventures and soon followed Sharon's methods. I soon started to get involved online
    with the charity. I have now been involved with the charity from the background and have had the pleasure of meeting the horses and seeing the way they all interact. I am now delighted to be a big
    part of the charity

    I came to know Sharon quite by chance while visiting the Isle of Bute. Remarkable young woman who deserves to be recognised for the work she has done and continues to do. In a world where we all feel
    a little jaded thinking are there any really good people out there doing anything for anyone but themselves..... well I had my own question answered when I met Sharon. I hope for many happy years for
    Sharon and her lovely equine family.
