Rescue Horse of the Week: Find Chocolate Egg a home

By Derby House Staff on |



Chocolate Egg,  a pretty 14.2hh Haflinger, is Derby House’s inaugural Rescue Horse of the Week. 

The six-year-old mare enjoys hacking out and cantering around the school where she’ll even jump a small fence. Rescued by Redwings Horse Sanctuary a few months ago having been found in appalling conditions with 100 other horses on a farm in Buckinghamshire, she’s now desperately seeking a new home. #CanyouhelpRedwings


Chocolate Egg is currently being cared for and trained by Redwings, the largest horse sanctuary in the UK with more than 1500 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules in its direct care. Every year at least 70 horses and ponies such as Chocolate Egg are successful rehomed through the charity. Their work is funded solely by donations – with your help they can give distressed animals the best possible care so they can eventually be rehomed or enjoy a home for life at the Sanctuary.

Given her age, Chocolate Egg requires an experienced home but in capable hands we’re sure she’ll thrive in any discipline. She is sweet-natured and hacks out and schools well.
