If you are interested in rehoming Toffee, please fill out our rehoming application.
Toffee is an 11yo 12.2hh liver chestnut mare, possibly a Dartmoor. She came to us after being sold to a family as a first riding pony, but was too nervous and frightened due to being badly treated in the past.
Fortunately we were able to take her in and give her some time off to live with our herd, which she needed.
Toffee is a lovely girl who is friendly and good to catch once she gets to know you, though can be nervous as she has had bad experiences in the past. She is not suitable for riding, however is a good doer, happy, healthy and ready to go to a kind and understanding home as a companion.
She gets on well with other horses and is happy to live in a herd or in a smaller group. She currently lives out, though does not mind coming in at night in winter, and is up to date with teeth and worming.
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.
