Rescuing and re-homing equines since 1974



  • Russ
  • Available
  • 16hh
  • 11 years old
  • Warmblood
  • Gelding

We have available for long term loan a stunning 11 year old, 16hh, Grey, Warmblood, Gelding. Russ is very friendly and affectionate. This lovely boy has come to us to help secure his future as a retired non ridden horse.

Russ is good to catch and lead. He will happily be tied up and stand to be fussed and groomed as he loves attention. He is good to have his feet picked out and well behaved for the farrier to trim his hooves, although he does need patience as this can cause him some discomfort. He has seen some traffic and could go for short walks, he enjoys any human interaction and loves our +R games.

Russ was born with wonky legs he has had a full vet check and they have confirmed he is fine to be kept as a companion/non ridden horse. He is best kept with geldings, (although he has lived with mares, he can become territorial with a mare field mate) and to live out as much as possible with a shelter. He can be stabled for short periods of time.

Russ is passported, microchipped and up to date with Flu and Tetanus vaccinations. He is good for the farrier and up to date and well behaved for the dentist. He loads and travels well in a horsebox or trailer. He has been worm counted and given medication. He can be worried about the vet but with positive reinforcement this is improving each visit.

We are looking for a quiet and loving home where he can live out as much as possible in the company of other geldings preferably. If you feel you can offer him this kind of home please get in touch!
