Our Available Horses

We are currently looking for New Homes


Beauty

Beauty is an ex-polo pony (horse). 

She is a lovely horse, and is very happy living as a companion to other mares, or could potentially be used as a hack.

She is very sweet, and has lots of ridden experience, however she can at times be strong so will need an experienced, competent rider. We are currently working with her at the rescue centre and she is responding well, and we therefore feel she will very soon be ready for her new home.

The ideal home will have plenty of turnout, but will be able to offer her some stable time or decent shelter during the winter months.

KEY FACTS:

  • Beauty is a chestnut mare, aged around 20 years, approximately 16" hh
  • She may be rehomed to an experienced home only and should not be used for polo.
  • She could be a companion or a lovely hack
  • Our suggested rehoming donation is £250

Clyde

Clyde is now available for rehoming. He was seized by the RSPCA after being tethered along with his mother on Romney Marsh. His mother has since been successfully rehomed.

Clyde is a lovely boy; very docile and easy to handle.  He could make a fabulous companion or, with training, he could be backed to become a ridden pony.

Shortly after his arrival at our rescue centre as a young colt, he had an accident in the field which damaged his eye and our vet advised that his eye could not be saved.  It hasn't hampered his development but his future home should understand that this may impact his training if he is to be ridden.

KEY FACTS:

  • Clyde is a Fell gelding, (born in November 2016), bay, currently standing at approximately 14'1hh
  • He has the potential to be a companion pony or ridden (with training) 
  • Must go to an experienced home
  • Our suggested rehoming donation is £250
 

Smartie Pants

Miss Smartie Pants is a black pony, born circa 2015.

She was rehomed in early summer, but has subsequently been returned. We were advised that she was kicking out behind, but since returning she has not done this. As yet she is unbacked due to her age but we feel she could have a wonderful future as a show pony, lead rein pony or be backed to drive in future.

Due to her breed, it is unlikely that her height will exceed 12hh once fully grown.

She will need an experienced home offering equine companionship and suitable facilities to enable her future training.

Our suggested rehoming donation is £250


Maisey

Maisey is rising 11 years old. She is a pretty pony, being a New Forest/Connemara X. She had been schooled in the past (a background check has confirmed this) and we have recently been working with her regularly to prepare her for her future home.  We believe she will ideally suit a competent lightweight rider as a 'second pony', and anyone wishing to rehome Maisey as a ridden pony will need to be experienced and capable of continuing her training and handling. She is generally well behaved, however at the moment, she finds a 'show' environment very exciting, and will need further training in this scenario.

KEY FACTS:

  • Maisey is a mare, (born in 2007), grey, approximately 13'3hh
  • She has the future potential to be a ridden pony or would make an ideal companion as she mixes well with other horses
  • Must go to an experienced home
  • Our suggested rehoming donation is £250

Bilbo

Bilbo is a palomino Section A pony, born in 2016.

He was rescued from a friend of Kilmarnock Horse Rescue and subsequently handed to us. As yet he is unbacked due to his age but we feel he could have a wonderful future as a show pony, lead rein pony or be backed to drive in future.

Due to his breed, it is unlikely that his height will exceed 12hh once fully grown.

He will need an experienced home offering equine companionship and suitable facilities to enable his training.

Our suggested rehoming donation is £250


Liam & Louie

Liam and Louie are believed to be less than a year old. They were found neglected and abandoned in very poor condition.  They were undernourished, and their coats were heavily soiled.

They came into the care of KHR in January 2018. Since their arrival, a great deal of care and patience has been needed to help the ponies become more comfortable around people. They were sedated to remove their winter coats, and to enable us to have their hooves trimmed. 

With regular contact we are delighted to say that they are much more trusting now of human contact and they are very placid in terms of their temperaments. They are small ponies but as yet not fully grown.  Louie is currently around 11'2 and Liam is approx. 12'2hh.

These two ponies are very closely bonded and so we would only consider rehoming them together as a pair.  They will be gelded prior to rehoming.


If the horses and ponies detailed on our site do not match your requirements, you may wish to check back in a week or so to see details of any new additions.  We are working with a number of horses and ponies who are currently not ready for rehoming but may appear on this website soon!  If you are interested in pursuing an application to rehome one of our rescues detailed here, please follow the rehoming procedure detailed in our rehoming section.
