The following horses and ponies are all available for loan on working livery here at the centre, sponsorship or adoption. A few are available for permanent re-homing.
Bobbie:- Chestnut Gelding Height 14.2hh Age 24
Bobbie may be considered for permanent re-homing as a companion pony with an experienced caring person. Bobbie is the product of being very roughly broken in by running him into a bog and when he was exhausted saddling and bridling him. Bobbie has suffered from his difficult start in life and this has left him with trust issues.
Amethyst came to White Horse Stables with her mother Candy who was again in foal with Amber and later gave birth to her here at the centre. Their mother has been re-homed but Amber and Amethyst remained with us. Amber and Amethyst have been together all their lives. They both need competent and experienced riders but in the correct hands are excellent ponies.
Magic:- Coloured Gelding Height 12.2hh Age 26
Magic is the offspring of Shambles and Jack. Shambles was rescued from an auction yard in Wales and very soon gave birth to Magic. Magic has a very nice temperament and is a good all round pony which naturally has made him a favourite with a number of Centre’s regulars.
Sparky:- Grey Gelding Height 11hh Age 31
Sparky was rescued before he was sent to Market where he would most likely have been purchased by the meat men. Luckily a member of staff heard of his situation so he was able to avoid the trauma of the Market. He is very reliable and easy to handle.
Eugenie:- Grey Mare Height 11hh Age 27
Eugenie is the daughter of Jack, and one of our first rescue ponies, Gypsy, now sadly not with us, leaving us peacefully in her 40th year. She is missed but lives on Eugenie, who is a delightful little pony with lots of character.
Ralph:- Black Shetland Gelding Height 10.2hh Age 8
Ralph is a registered Shetland. He was purchased by a gentleman who intended to train him as a first pony for his daughter. When he saw him he was well behaved but when he got him home Ralph proved difficult to handle. Since he has been with White Horse he has been gelded and is now easy to handle. With the right person and correct training he would suit as a child's first pony.
Rosco:- Roan Gelding Height 11.2hh Age 7
Rosco is a registered section A pony. He came to White Horse Stables as his owners were no longer able to care for him. He has been gelded but not yet backed. He has a nice temperament, good confirmation and has all his papers. He is well handled and would suit as a lead rein show pony as he has lovely paces. In the right hands he might make a good child’s riding pony.
Dorothy was one of six rescue ponies all the way from Somerset. They were owned by a man who kept around a hundred ponies in appalling conditions. He was taken to court and banned from keeping animals for life.
Dorothy was in foal when she arrived at the centre. WHS had no idea that she would give birth to Oz a few months later.
Dorothy has now been backed and her trainning is going well.
Mae:- Bay Exmoor Filly Born April 2015
Chance:- Grey Gelding Height 12.2hh Age 26
Chance was the prodigy of Jack and Megan, one of our original rescues from when the centre was based in Essex. He is a very reliable and good all round pony. He would love to have a loaner all of his own.
The following horses and ponies are not suitable as riding ponies for various reasons, age too young or too old, temperament or for health reasons. They are ideal for someone who would like a one to one reationship with a horse but does not wish to ride. You would be free to work as much or as little as you choose with your choosen horse helping with day to day care, grooming, possibly training under supervision.
WHS will require a knowledgeable owner with an occuppied home which must include a suitable stable and grazing or suitable livery. The home must be within 25 miles of the centre. Regular home checks will be made.
Bay Mare Height 14.2hh Age 19
Amethyst:- Bay Mare Height 14.2hh Age 20
Ranger:- Bay Gelding Thoughbred x Cob Height 15.2hh Age 26
Ranger had been so badly mistreated when he arrived at the centre he was afraid of his own shadow. He responded well to schooling and a lot of TLC. He has recently had an eye removed as he had tumour behind it. He has recovered well but can be a little jumpy if you approach him silently on his blind side. He is very affectionate and would love the one to one attention from loaner.
Dorothy:- Grey Exmoor x Rising 14hh Age 5 Gave birth to a foal (Oz) on 9th April 2015
Bluey:- Skewbald Mare Height 152hh Age 23
Bluey is a big bold beautiful cob with a lovely even temperament. She is very reliable, works very well in the school, is happy hacking out and jumps well. She is a wonderful horse for someone to loan but does not travel well so would not be suitable to take to shows.
Bronte:- Cleveland Bay Mare Height 17hh Age 23
Bronte came to White Horse as her owner was experiencing difficulties with her. She has been at the centre for a few years during which time she has benefitted from careful schooling. She is now a reliable horse but needs an experienced rider.
Dylon:- Chestnut New Forest Gelding Height 14.1hh Age 26
Dylon would make an ideal companion pony and could be ridden out on gentle hacks on a limited basis. He suffers from a pollen allergy in the spring and summer months, this can be treated with medication. He can sometimes be difficult to handle until he gets to know and learns to trust the person he is with. Dylan is only suitable for rehoming with someone who is experienced.
Mae is now two years old. She was born at the centre to Maggie a rescue pony taken in all the way from Somerset. Mae has a nice temperament, is well socialised and easy to handle.
Samson:- Bay Exmoor x Gelding Born April 2015
Samson is now 2 years old, He was born at the centre to Delilah who was rescued along with Maggie. He is well socialised and likely to make 14.2hh.
Daphne and Melodie were two of six rescue ponies WHS took in all the way from Somerset. They were owned by a man who kept around a hundred ponies in appalling conditions. He was taken to court and banned from keeping animals for life. They were only 18 months old when they arrived and are now 4. They are well socialised, easy to handle and have just started thir trainning as riding ponies. They are both progressing very well and have responded postively to everything asked of them.
Daphne and Melodie have been together all their lives and have bonded so should be re-homed together.
Elliott :- Grey Gelding Height 15.1hh Age 26
Elliott has a nice temperament and is very reliable out hacking. He can be a little stiff in his legs when he first starts out but will soon let you know when has loosened up by striding out. He is very forward going and would be suitable for light hacking.
Sooty:- Black Shetland Mare Height 10.2hh Age 21
Sooty is a little Shetland pony with lots of character. She was rescued from unsuitable home that did not know how to care for her properly and the children were allowed to play with her as if she were a toy. She has given many small children their first experience of riding a pony.
Smartie:- Bay Gelding Height 12.2hh Age 11
Smartie was rescued from an horrendous situation. Despite his poor start in life he is a happy even tempered pony. He now takes children on pony rides and is used in Pony Club to help earn money to support his fellow rescue ponies.
Frankie:- Piebald Cob Gelding Height 16hh Age 28
Frankie was too strong, big and clumsy for his previous owner. All he needed was some careful schooling and a little understanding. He is now our lovely gentle who is now retired but enjoys being groomed and fussed over. He would make an ideal horse for someone who is no longer able to ride but misses having a bond with horse of their own.
Shandy:- Skewbald Mare Height 12hh Age 12
Dolly, Fudge, Paddy Sox, Shandy and Demitruis were all rescued by a well meaning lady from some travellers. She was unable to cope and appealed to the charity for help, of course we took them. They were in poor condition badly overgrown feet and worm ridden. Shandy has been a successful show pony having won Best of Breed at a number of shows and has achieved Show Champion. She would make an ideal companion pony.
