    Can you help us find Wisteria a home? She’s a six-year-old 12h3 Welsh cross, currently living at Redwings Ada Cole in Essex.

    We’re certain she can turn her hoof to anything: Pony Club, hacking out, competing. She works well in the school and is confident over jumps. She promises to be a fantastic partner for a competent young rider looking for a fun second pony.

    Wisteria was born at Redwings in 2008 after her mother Lilac was rescued in foal. She lives out in a field with her mates all year round but she is content in the stable when brought in.

    We’re sure you’d like her as she’s a very well-mannered mare in all respects!

  2. Rescue Horse of the Week: Find Chocolate Egg a home

    Leave a Comment facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

    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.

    Please tweet #CanyouhelpRedwings to help give Chocolate Egg a second chance at a happy life and if you’re interested in rehoming yourself, click here for more details
