Charities We Support


Kelly Marks is the patron of this incredible charity dedicated to saving the lives of abandoned, neglected, and mistreated horses, ponies, and donkeys. Based in Bristol, Horseworld currently cares for more than 100 equines, with an additional 200 successfully re-homed throughout the South-West.

In addition this charity runs an innovative Discovery educational program, providing essential education on animal welfare. Thanks to the tireless efforts of our dedicated team, HorseWorld operates 365 days a year, funded entirely by voluntary donations.

Intelligent Horsemanship is thrilled to work with this charity, with several HorseWorld Team members having attended our courses to learn essential horse handling skills for rescues. We encourage you to join us in supporting this incredible cause. Explore There website to learn more about how you can get involved in the exciting work of HorseWorld today!


Kelly Marks is also a Patron at Shylowen Horse and Pony Sanctuary, who rescue equines in need and provide a safe haven for life. While their main focus is those that can be rehabilitated and rehomed, they also take in animals ranging from wild ponies to neglected and abused working horses. Over time they have developed into offering equine therapy, horse whispering courses, facilitator training for equine assisted programs, an ethical riding school, and a range of community events. Intelligent Horsemanship has several Shylowen Team members on our courses to learn horse handling skills for rescues.

IH Members can watch Monty Roberts and Kelly Marks Webinar to raise money for the charity which managed to raise nearly £2000. You can still donate: HERE

Warrior Equine Super Hero Award –

“Introducing our new Super Heroes Awards!  Thanking those who have quietly gone above and beyond in supporting Warrior Equine, (but are far too humble to tell you themselves). 🏆🏆

And first up is the amazing Kelly Marks of Intelligent Horsemshaip for all her unstinting help and enthusiasm since the very start.  The generous loaning of a round pen, gifting of expensive equipment, plus endless wise counsel,  it’s impossible to list everything she has done for us.  Huge gratitude to you Kelly ❤.

If you want to learn some seriously world class Horsemanship skills, this is where it all started for our Instructing Staff.”
