Attractive riding/ native show project
Alice is a well put together, fit and healthy low mileage 18 year old Native mare of around 14 hands. She was purchased by a novice family as an unbroken 5 year old, and sadly suffered much abuse due to the methods used to "break" her in. Fortunately she was later bought by a kind lady, who started to work with her and give her a new start in life.
Alice responded well, however her owner became ill and had to rehome her horses, which is how Alice came to be with us. Despite her previous treatment, Alice is good natured and clearly wants to engage with people - she has just been hurt enough that she is very wary, with good reason.
A livery yard environment would not suit her - she needs to be handled and cared for by the person who is giving her the 1 to 1 that she needs, rather than by several people.
Please note - she is NOT ready to be ridden - she requires work and starting from scratch.
We are looking for someone who would like a very rewarding project - the small amount we have done with Alice has shown us how much she would like to trust people again.
If you are interested in rehoming Alice, we would suggest you come and visit and if all goes well, stay for a few days to get to know each other before a decision is taken - we would like her next home to be long term!
Requirements for loan homes:
Daily turnout – Although most of our horses prefer to live outdoors all year round, most of them do not mind being stabled at night, but we only rehome to yards who provide daily turnout all year round
Group turnout – Horses are herd animals and need to live with other horses. While most of our horses would not mind being left alone for short periods we do not rehome horses to environments where they will be kept alone for long periods. We rehome youngsters from 1 year upwards, and in most cases, we will only rehome where they will have at least one other youngster to play with (like human children, horses need other youngsters to play with to develop good social skills)
We rehome to most areas of Yorkshire - other locations may be considered depending on circumstances
Youngsters – We only rehome unbroken horses to homes with previous experience of starting and schooling horses
In most cases, we ask for a donation towards costs when loaning a horse from us.
Insurance – except with older horses where vet cover may not be viable, we advise you to have suitable 3rd party liability and vet fees cover as a minimum.
We rehome horses and ponies on a permanent loan basis. We retain ownership and if ever you are unable to keep the horse, he or she can be brought back to us. We are always on hand to provide help and advice if needed.
