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.
Myrtle's Mystery (Revoque x Emma Lilley) is a 16.1, 10 year old mare.
She has been mainly hacked, although has done a little bit of everything. She is good to hack alone or in company.
She schools nicely on the flat but is slightly rusty so needs continued work. She will happily pop a fence, including fillers. We have only jumped her about 60cm as she's been out of work a while, but no reason to imagine she couldn't jump up to 100 level with a little work.
She doesn't like the rain, and can be quite bouncy in bad weather, but has been quiet and sweet the rest of the time.
She is a sweetheart on the ground and easy to deal with. She has been slightly tricky to load with past owners, but has been ok here with us.
She wouldn't suit a complete novice, but is not a complicated ride either. A home where she would hack, fun ride and riding club activities would be ideal.
Dinks, an absolutely delightful four year old exracer who we helped to rehome for a friend.
