Companion Equines Seeking Homes

Here at the sanctuary, we have a number of horses, ponies and donkeys that are unsuitable for riding due to age, medical conditions and other factors, but are still looking for their forever homes to be loved as a pet.

Keeping a horse as a companion can be just as rewarding as keeping a horse for riding. Companion horses can provide just that, companionship, to single working horses or other non-ridden equines. They play an integral role in the wellbeing of working horses, providing them invaluable friendship and can even be a source of calming reassurance for travelling, not to mention they make excellent pets in their own right.

Take a look at the lovely Grace. At 17 years young, Grace is a very sweet mare who is on the lookout for a retirement home where she will be loved and cared for in her twilight years. If you would be interested in offering gorgeous Grace a home please click on her photo below to find out more about her.

We also have a lovely pair of donkeys here at the sanctuary - Emily and Elijah. This donkey duo are mother and son and have been working hard on their manners recently. They both lead well and are responsive to voice cues and body language. If you are interested in adopting these two adorable donkeys please click in their photo below.
