Hayley is now surviving on donations and Universal Credit, which barely covers her rent cost.

Indie, who is an aspiring jockey and hopes to race at the Shetland pony Grand National, is determined to save the riding school and has set up a just giving page to raise £500.

She plans to ride 30 times in 30 days.

She has already exceeded this in a matter of days, managing to raise an £675.

Indie's proud mother, Sandringham author Hannah Whyman- Naveh said: "It would be so sad, there won't be many riding schools left if this carries on."
