Seeking New Homes!

After working hard with these individuals, teaching them the basics of pony life such as putting a halter on, leading and picking up feet. We have now decided that they have graduated and to let them find new life long homes.

How To Adopt

Serious enquires only please!

If you think you can offer one of our ponies a life long home then please contact us using the details below. We are not open to the general public and an appointment must be made to get a viewing. Please come dressed for the weather with suitable footwear for the fields.

A donation of £60 per ponies is required to help the charity cover the costs of keeping. You will be entering a loan agreement whch will be discussed in your appointment. Photographic evidence of your set up is required and a home check will be carried out. 

Sammy

Past Story

Every year hundreds of wild Dartmoor ponies are rounded up off the moors and sold on – at least 80% are sold on to become pet food. Luckily in 2011, we were able to save young Sammy from such a fate.

Behaviour

Sammy is an 7 year old, 11.2hh dartmoor gelding and is such a character! He is a curious chappy, often stirring up trouble in the fields and wants you to join in the fun as well! A well-mannered pony, he is willing to learn and has come on nicely. Good to lead, load and used to traffic, Sammy can be a little sensitive around the farrier, vet and dentist but in general is good with them.

Health Concerns or Issues

No concerns present or future

Suitable Loanee / Home

Sammy has a passport and is up to date with his vaccinations and dental. He is at the perfect age to be backed and would make a brilliant little riding pony for someone!

Casper

Past Story

In November 2011, Brinsley Animal Rescue was contacted about a very distressing case. Over 60 ponies, including some mares in foal, had been found in serious neglect. Thankfully through the help of other larger organizations we were able to recover them, and the owner: prosecuted. Brinsley Animal Rescue took on two little colts -  Casper being one of them.

Behaviour

Casper is a 3-4 year old 11hh welsh pony gelding. He is bold and confident pony who can also be labelled as nosey! He needs to be reminded for his manners at times as he can come across as “bolshy”. Easy to catch in the field, okay to be lead and loaded; Casper can be a little sensitive around the farrier but is strangely okay with the vet and dentist! He is well behaved in traffic and really loves a good groom and fuss. If you scratch the right place (mainly the withers) he starts to smile!

Health Concerns or Issues

No concerns present or future

Suitable Loanee / Home

Casper has received all his vaccinations, and is up to date with his dental & feet. He comes with his passport and needs a home that can further on his training (to be backed) or he could make a very sweet companion pony.

Juno

Past Story

Juno was previously rounded up off the moors of Dartmoor. Brought by her previous owner, she was used as a breeder mare and organic mower in a honey farm. Due to reasons, she was destined for the slaughter house but thankfully her owner had a change of heart and brought her to us in Summer 2015.

Behaviour

Juno is a wonderful 13hh dartmoor mare who very quickly settled down here at the centre. We are unsyre of the age but we believe her to be 8 years plus.She loves interaction and can easily be the centre of attention. Previously backed in the past, this girl is perfect to handle, okay with the farrier, vet and dentist - she just needs a little encouragement (food) when it comes to loading.

Health Concerns or Issues

No concerns present or future

Suitable Loanee / Home

Juno is waiting for her passport, up to date with her dental and is currently due her last vaccination. She would make a great project for someone to get back into shape &  reintroduce her back into ridden work.

Billy

Available

Past History

Billy didn't have a good start in life. Rescued from a life of abuse with his friend Smartie. Billy arrived at the centre in 2011. After some time he started to gain trust in people again and now you would never know it!

Behaviour

Billy is a 11 year old, 9hh gelding miniature sheltand and is such a cutie! He very good all round, to catch, lead, do dental and have his feet trimmed. He likes to be pampered and be the centre of attention. Billy is a bit of a ladies man and adores his mares!

Health Concerns Or Issues

Billy does suffer with a life long condition called "sweet itch" in the summer - which will need to be controlled. For more information on the condition please check out this leaflet or this website. We are also happy to give advise. 

Suitible Loanee / Home

Billy is up to date with his vaccinations, dental and feet. He comes with his passport. Billy would be suitiable as a companion pony for either another horse or person!

Smartie

Available

Past History

Smartie didn't have a good start in life. Rescued from a life of abuse with his friend Billy. Smartie arrived at the centre in 2011. Since he has known abuse in his past, sadly he has shown fear to humans, taking a lot of time to get to trust indivduals.

Behaviour

Smartie  is a 20 year old, 9hh gelding sheltand. As an old boy, Smartie prefers to keep to himself. He takes a while to warm up to you and trust you. But when this does happen he is good to lead.

Health Concerns Or Issues

Smartie is in good health.

Suitible Loanee / Home

Behaviour

Celeste is a 11 - 12hh mare who is 1o years old. Her previous owner had labeled her to be be " as mean as a hornet" but she is nothing like that!
