Riding Horses at the Sanctuary

Horses which are best-suited at homes where they will be ridden regularly.  
Spirited and charming, endlessly elegant thoroughbred horses who, given the right care and attention will become a wonderful lifelong friend and companion. 
Your weight, fitness level, riding ability, riding ambitions and proposed equine activities all influence the horse most suited to your needs.
An ex-racehorse horse is not for everyone and we would need to asses your ability here at the Sanctuary before allowing you to rehome a Sanctuary horse.  You will be given ample opportunity to 'try' the horses available under expert guidance and with your individual requirements in mind.  You can be assured of the high quality of training a Sanctuary horse will have received and the subsequent advice and support available to you as a new keeper.
A re-trained racehorse can provide considerable pleasure as a hack and many are capable of competing at various grades in multiple disciplines.   Many event organisers now include special classes for ex-racehorses. 
Careful consideration needs to be given to the finances needed to provide the standard of care for a thoroughbred and to where and how the horse would be kept. A Sanctuary inspector will pay a 'home' visit to ensure that suitable stabling, grazing and care plan are in place. 
If you can provide a home for one of our riding horses please call for more information and to arrange a Sanctuary visit.
