Horses in progress

Check out some of our horses and ponies who are currently progressing through their rehabilitation.

Check out some of our horses and ponies who are currently progressing through their rehabilitation.

Meet some of our lovely horses and ponies who are currently in work at our four Rescue and Rehoming Centres! We aim to find all of them loving homes of their own via our rehoming scheme in time but, horses being horses, nothing is guaranteed. As such, we cannot say for certain when, if, or in what category horses and ponies featured here will become available for rehoming – it will all depend on how their rehabilitation progresses.

If you have questions about any of the horses and ponies pictured here, please don’t get in touch with us just yet but wait until they appear on our rehoming pages, as we will be able to give you much more accurate answers then. Thanks so much for your interest!


Poppy is an adorable wee 8hh Shetland Pony who is currently long reining around the farm at Belwade Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre. She has been a ride and drive pony in the past so we are hoping she will be available as a tiny tot’s lead rein pony in the future. Poppy has not been at Belwade Farm long, but she is a firm favourite with the staff already as she is just the cutest!

Finlay is a handsome 15.3hh gelding who has just started work at Belwade Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre. He was in poor condition on arrival so is being built up slowly to ensure he gains the correct muscle. He has taken to work well, and his groom is very proud of him learning to long rein in our arena. We will keep you updated on his progress.

What our rehomers say about us

“Anyone looking to rehome a horse should definitely do it: World Horse Welfare is so supportive and rehoming is just such a great thing to do – it’s so rewarding.”

Rehomer Stella Burbidge

"If anyone is looking for a riding pony or a driving pony, I can 100% recommend that they should really try World Horse Welfare. I cannot fault this place – they were obviously totally open and you know if it doesn’t work out the pony can come back and will find a good home. The horses and ponies come with a full MOT and you couldn’t ask for more."

Rehomer Nichola Waddicor

“I was considering buying a horse, but my friend had rehomed from World Horse Welfare so persuaded me to consider doing the same. We went to Belwade Farm to look at two other horses and whilst I was there I looked up to see Tinto standing at the top of a hill, almost as if he was saying ‘Look at me!’.”

Rehomer Fiona Bell

“I would always recommend rehoming a horse. Rehomers receive such a huge amount of support and the team at the charity are always 100% honest and realistic with you. The pride you get from rehoming these horses – who sometimes have a very sad past – is incredible.”
