World Horse Welfare runs the UK’s largest equine rescue and rehoming scheme. If you choose to rehome you’ll receive an honest assessment of the horse and their capabilities, ongoing support, and the reassurance that if your circumstances change you can return him/her – plus the reward of knowing you’re creating space for another horse to come into our care.

All of our horses are thoroughly assessed

Throughout their time at one of our centres, all our horses and ponies are regularly assessed by a group of specialists. You will get an honest description of the ability and temperament of the horse and any requirements they may have.

Our horses come with a safety net

We love to find forever homes for our horses. However, if your circumstances change you can always return the horse to us. No one knows what’s around the corner, so it can save you a great deal of heartache if you have a safety net in place.

The feel-good factor of changing a life

Many of our rehomers say that rehoming a horse is an immensely rewarding experience. Most of our horses have had difficult lives before coming to us and by rehoming you are offering them what may be their first ever experience of building a one-to-one bond in a loving home.

Rehoming one horse helps another

When you rehome from us you help other horses by freeing up vital space at our rescue centres. Sadly, there are always horses needing to come into our care so it’s critical that we make space by rehoming those who have completed their rehabilitation. By choosing to rehome you become key to helping more horses get the care they need.

A lifetime of advice and support

When you rehome one of our horses, you have ongoing support and access to our expertise should you need it. You can call our rehoming team to discuss any issues – or just give us an update! – and your local World Horse Welfare Officer will check in with you routinely to see how everything’s going.
