Rehoming a rescue horse

We have lots of horses and ponies waiting to be rehomed throughout England and Wales right now - ranging from adult-ridden and companion horses to youngsters who will need bringing on in their new homes.

We have two specialist equine centres covering England and Wales - located in County Durham and Shropshire. Our centres in Wales also have a selection of ponies for rehoming.

Experienced homes

All of the horses and ponies will have come into our care as welfare cases. Some of them will have needed a lot of rehabilitation work. Experience with horses and patience is a must!

If owning a rescue horse appeals to you, find out more about our equine rehoming process.

Looking for your first horse?

A lot of our horses will not be suitable for first time horse owners.

If you have no experience in horse care, why not try to do some basic qualifications in stable management? Be sure to combine this with practical experience as well.

The British Horse Society runs Horse Owner Certificate courses which are in-depth and comprehensive. There may also be training courses you can attend locally, usually organised by local riding schools.

Adoption fees

We ask for an adoption fee if you rehome one of our rescue horses or ponies. Prices start from £150.
