Welcome to The Horse Trust’s rehoming area.
-We currently do not have any horses available for rehoming. Please check back soon –
Arthur is a 4 year old, 13hh gelding who is looking for a very specific home. Arthur suffers from a neurological problem and is being rehomed as a non-ridden companion. Arthur came to us as part of a large multi-agency rescue.
Arthur will need a home that has reasonably flat, free draining turnout that doesn’t get too wet in the winter. He will need 24/7 access to a bedded down shelter where he would be able to lie down and is also happy to part stable. He will also always need the company of other quiet equines.
Due to Arthur’s type he would also need his weight carefully managed all year round, but especially during the Spring and Autumn.
Dobby is a 2 year old, 13.2hh gelding who is looking for a short-term grazing home until he is 4 years old. Dobby arrived at The Horse Trust in 2021 after being found abandoned and in very poor condition. He is now in good health and has started training for basic handling.
Dobby would be suited to a home that has horses of a similar age and size that he can interact and play with.
9 Steps to Rehoming – how our rehoming works:
1. Apply – If you are interested in offering a home to one of our horses (please note ‘horse’ is used to include horses, ponies and donkeys) listed on this page, click on the horse to learn more about them and complete the short contact form available at the end of their profile by clicking ‘interested in rehoming me?’
2. Expression of interest reviewed – if our Equine Care Officer feels you may be able to offer a suitable home, you will be contacted and asked to enter into our Assessment Process. We will provide you at that stage with full details of the Assessment Process and copies of all the relevant documents.
3. Assessment Process – You will be asked to complete a full Application Form and provided with a copy of our Assessment Agreement to consider. You will also be asked to provide specific consent to our processing special categories of personal data about you as part of our Assessment Process if you choose to proceed. If you would be happy to enter into an Assessment Agreement with us and to follow our Assessment Process, please fill and return to us our full Application Form and please use the form provided to give us your specific consent to our processing special categories of personal data about you as part of our Assessment Process.
4. Application Assessed – When we have considered the detailed information on your full Application Form, if the Equine Care Officer thinks you will be the best match for the horse and can potentially offer the right home, we will ask you to sign an Assessment Agreement. Once we have entered into the Assessment Agreement, the full Assessment Process is underway.
5. Meet the horse – You will then be invited to meet the horse at The Horse Trust and to demonstrate your ability with horses.
6. Home visit – our Equine Care Officer will carry out a home check where you intend to keep the horse. This is simply to check the site is suitable to meet the needs of the horse.
7. Vet check – our Veterinary Director can provide you with the relevant medical history of the horse and will ensure vaccinations and routine procedures are up to date before you take your horse home.
8. Rehoming paperwork – if you agree to take the horse, you will be required to sign a Rehoming Agreement with us. You will also be asked to provide consent to us processing any special categories of data about you so we can monitor and support the rehoming. Provided you are happy to do so and that paperwork is completed, you can then take your horse home.
9. Advice and support – we carry out regular home checks on all our rehomed horses and offer advice and support by telephone for all our loanees.
