Standardbred Trotter

Jenny came to us at just two years old after being very cruely treated by a previous owner. It seems likely that Jenny had been made to pull a cart while she was far too young. When we first saw her she was extremely frightened and had a lot of deep whip marks on her neck and back. She also had injuries to her neck, legs, and hips. After many month of love and patience, Jenny has come a long way and has made a wonderful recovery. Click here to read Jenny’s full before and after story.

Silverado was rescued from the streets where he had been tethered and bullied by local children. He was still a stallion when he came to us at 18, but settled down once we had him castrated. Silverado struggles to keep weight on so we keep a close eye on his diet and give him supplements to keep him happy and healthy. Click here to read Silverado’s full before and after story.

Phillip on Loan

Born in 2007
34″ tall
Shetland Pony

Phillip came to Roleystone in 2011 after the previous sanctuary he was living at had to close down. He is a lovely boy who can never be ridden because he suffers from progressive curvature of the spine. He is quite a nervous pony and for a long time didn’t get on well with other horses, sometimes chasing the other Shetlands around! However he gets on really well with Silverado and they can often be seen playing in the fields together.

Toby on Loan

Born in 2013
Cob type

Toby was abandoned in someone’s garden in the middle of winter. He had been left tied up for three days when we were contacted. He was very thin and in poor condition, so we brought him back to the sanctuary for some love and proper care. Although he came to us in a sorry state, he is looking beautiful today.

Interested in re-homing a horse?

We do rehome horses if we are able to rehabilitate them and find a loving home for them. Home checks are performed to guarantee the suitability of the home, and the horse always remains the property of the sanctuary. We take rehoming very seriously. If at any point the adoptive owner is no longer able to look after the horse, the sanctuary will always take them back to ensure their welfare.

If you are interested in rehoming one of our horses and would like some further information, please contact us to discuss whether we might have a suitable horse for you.
