If you are interested in rehoming Shanon, please fill out our rehoming application.
Lovely natured 14yo 15.2hh Appaloosa few spot mare who is green for her age as she is very low mileage - she has spent most of her life as a field ornament!
She is affectionate and bonds closely with her rider/carer, enjoys one to one and is looking for a kind, sensitive rider who can school her on and offer her a lifelong home in the Yorkshire area ONLY. Maximum rider weight including tack is 12 stone.
Shanon is a well bred lady and has lovely paces, is good in traffic and hacks alone or in company. She is barefoot and wears hoofboots.
She is only available to rehome to a yard with a minimum size turnout of at least 5 acres - this is because she loves to run and play with other horses and would not enoy living in a small paddock.
Shanon had an attack of uvitis many years ago, and although her eyes were undamaged she is sensitive to sunlight and needs to wear a mask on bright days, both in the field and out riding.
She is a good doer who lives out 24/7 in a mixed herd, though she does not mind coming in at night, and is bossy when food is around.
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.
