Rescuing and re-homing equines since 1974

  • 8hh Shetland gelding

Are you looking for a pony to join the family? Alfie, our 8hh, 10 year old shetland gelding is looking for a new home with someone who can offer him a secure long term home with a companion of a similar size. 

He is good to be stabled so can come in to help restrict his grazing; he could also live out on a track system with 24/7 access to a field shelter. All our horses come with a Passport, Microchip, Up to date vaccinations/deworming, Farrier and Dentistry. We tend to rehome in the Yorkshire area but if you are nearby or within a 50 mile radius of our sites we will consider your application.

Alfie is good to catch, lead, tie up, groom, feet picked out. He has not seen much traffic or been taken out alone. This is something that he would need to be worked towards slowly. Alfie has been kept entire most of his life. After recently being gelded Alfie is ready to find his forever home. He has been used for hope pastures experience days and has been groomed by children. He is good to lead and handle although requires further training to be caught but once in a routine is fine to catch. He gets on well with other geldings although we have not tried him with any mares yet, he loves to play in the field and respects fencing. 

Alfie is currently on site where he is handled daily waiting for a new home where he will be taken out for walks and be welcomed as part of the family. He has never been ridden or driven although with the right time and training this could be an option for him. He could come in to be stabled or live out 24/7 with shelter and restricted grazing as most native types do. 

You must be over 18 to apply and have experience owning and looking after a pony like Alfie. If you feel you can offer him this kind of home please get in touch! More photos and videos are available upon request.
