Unlike our other animals where upon adoption you assume ownership, some of our horses could potentially go out on loan to suitable homes with people who can demonstrate a good level of horse knowledge and care and who have the financial means and facilities to deliver that. The Animal Sanctuary would retain ownership.
Currently none of our horses and ponies are rideable, and so are only available as grazing companions. People with horse experience realise this is often not as simple as putting a horse in a field to eat grass, a number of our ponies would be potentially susceptible to Laminitis and would need an environment appropriate to help prevent this.
If you are looking for a pony as a companion and you would like to speak to us please e mail sarah.diggle@heswilmslow for an initial chat.
As with all our animals a detailed home check would take place prior to loan and subsequent visits would be made by arrangement thereafter.
