Rehomed this year
Here are a few of the very special horses and ponies who we have been lucky enough to have found long term, loving homes for this year!
Goldilocks (Goldie - out of Lady in Red) is a 2009, 14hh approx, Welsh X, Palomino mare.
She was taken on a few months ago by our clients, as a rescue case. Before this she had been sat in a field on her own for a long period of time. Understandably she has been fairly anxious about being handled, but is gradually getting used to people.
We are currently in the process of backing Goldie, and she is proving to be a quick study. She is walking out on lead rein under saddle and is calm and happy.
Goldie is microchipped and up to date with worming and has had her teeth done under sedation by the vet. The only problem which is still consistent is she hasn't had back feet filed for some long period of time, and has been too stressed to have them done with us yet. We are continuing with desensitising and positive reinforcement and she is still improving.
Goldie is a stunning pony and can be so giving, but she needs confident and competent handling and continued training, even just to be a pet. We also would prefer her to go to a long-term home, as we feel it would be disturbing for her to have too many homes.
There is no reason Goldie couldn't go on to do any job, with the correct training.
