Could you home a riding pony from World Horse Welfare?

World Horse Welfare has put out an appeal for loan homes for riding ponies currently at its Glenda Spooner Farm in Somerset.

“For some reason we are struggling to re-home some lovely ponies, and I’m not really sure why,” said centre manager, Janet Dale.

Among the ponies is Rowanna (pictured top right), a 17-year-old, 12.2hh Welsh pony, ideal for Pony Club activities, who arrived at Glenda Spooner Farm in poor condition in 2008 as part of a welfare case.

Others include Nicky, an 11-year-old, 14.2hh bay mare, who is suitable for hacking (pictured above), and Sherry, a six-year-old Shetland trained for driving and lead rein (pictured below).

“People may be under the impression that we only have companion horses available for re-homing, but this isn’t the case,” added Janet.

“I would encourage anyone looking for a riding horse or pony to consider re-homing from us.”

Applicants are invited to meet the horses and ride them before committing to a loan to ensure a good match.
