The RSPCA is looking for experienced horse owners to re-home two horses and two ponies, which were found in very poor condition when they were removed from their owner earlier this year, but have since returned to full heath.

Both the horses are attractive Arab-type chestnut geldings, which stand around 15hh and are about six years old (pictured with RSPCA chief inspector Dockery).

The two ponies are both approximately three years old and stand around 13hh. One is a roan gelding and the other is a bay New Forest-type mare.

The four horses can be re-homed separately or together. All are described as friendly and happy to come to a bucket of feed. The RSCPA is unsure whether any of the four have been broken in.

Chief inspector Steve Dockery says: “These horses have been through a lot of suffering but now thankfully they are in excellent health and looking for new homes with people who have plenty of time and experience to care for them properly.”

Anyone interested in offering a home to any of the horses should contact (tel: 08705 555999) and ask for Chief inspector Steve Dockery.
