Meet Pengraig Glain (Kerrera)
Kerrera is a gorgeous little welsh mare with oodles of character. She came into World Horse Welfare care in late 2020 and has since had a healthy colt foal called Pabay. Now that Pabay is weaned Kerrera is ready to find a loving new home as a companion to other small ponies. She gains weight very easily so must be kept on restricted grazing; she is therefore not able to live with larger horses or ponies. Unfortunately, Kerrera has poor movement so is unsuitable as a child’s pony; she also has quite a strong-willed temperament so is better suited to an adult handler. Kerrera is always happy to see her groom but she is a typical bossy wee mare and likes things her own way. She is very good for all her handling, but she will always be a sassy pony and is certainly never boring to have around! Kerr adores the other Welsh ponies in her field but can be grumpy with other dominant mares and will always stick up for herself if there is any drama. She adores attention and would happily stand all day if she was getting scratches from her groom. Kerr has lived in a herd her whole life and would become quite stressed if left alone in the field so will always need friends around. If you think this cheeky wee pony sounds right for you, please apply online.
Pengraig Glain (Kerrera) can never be ridden or driven.
All equines in our centres are regularly assessed by a team of experts including a vet, physiotherapist and farrier, and these assessments have found that Pengraig Glain (Kerrera) is not suitable to be worked.
Kerrera came into Belwade Farm in September 2020 as one of a large case of Welsh ponies. She had a foal at foot, was in foal and in poor condition on arrival. Kerrera had a healthy colt foal, named Pabay in April 2021.

Find and apply for a horse
Browse or search our range of horses ready for rehoming (the word 'horse' includes horses, ponies, donkeys and their hybrids). Once you have selected your horse(s), click the 'Apply to Rehome' button to go to our online application form. Your details will be saved to make it easier for you to check the status of your application as well as to apply for other horses in the future.
The team at our Rescue and Rehoming Centre will review your application and get back to you as soon as they can, usually within two weeks. Do keep an eye on your junk email if you don't hear from us!
Meet the horse
If we think you sound like the best match for that horse, we will call and ask you to visit the Centre in order to meet them. If you intend to rehome a companion, we may ask you to groom or handle the horse. For ridden, driven, youngster or project horses, we will also assess your riding/driving and groundwork abilities as appropriate.
Once everyone is happy that the right match has been found, one of our friendly Field Officers will visit you and the location where you intend to keep the horse. This is simply to check that the site is safe and suitable for the horse you have been matched with.
Once our Field Officer has visited and approved the location, our vet will give the horse one last check before you take them home.
Take your horse home!
Once these steps have been successfully completed, you will need to become a World Horse Welfare ChampionPlus member, pay your one-off rehoming fee and sign the Rehoming Agreement. Once that is done, you can take the horse home!
We've included our top six questions here but you can find the full list here.
How often is the site updated?
Our rehoming pages are updated on a weekly basis, usually on a Wednesday afternoon, so please do keep checking back if you can’t see a horse who’s right for you straight away. We generally advise checking once a week to make sure you don’t miss the opportunity to apply, as ridden horses are often extremely popular and can receive a large number of applications very quickly.
Can you add me to a waiting list?
We no longer hold a waiting list as, due to the sheer volume of applications we receive, we found this not to be an effective system. Instead, we ask potential rehomers to monitor the website and apply for any individual horse which is of interest. However, we hope people will be able to register for email alerts in future. Our rehoming pages are updated on a weekly basis, usually on a Wednesday afternoon, so please do keep checking back if you can’t see the horse who’s right for you straight away.
Do you have catchment areas?
We don’t have catchment areas so you are welcome to apply for a horse at any farm, but do bear in mind that you will usually be asked to travel to the relevant farm to meet your chosen horse and you would also have to arrange transport to take the horse home should you be successful – plus not all our horses can travel long distances.
Can I come and see a horse I’m interested in?
You will need to apply through our website and we will invite the person who appears to be the best match for the horse to come and meet them. Please note that you can only visit the farm to meet the horse if you have been invited by the team.
Do you rehome ridden or driven horses?
We do rehome ridden and driven horses, but they are often extremely popular and can receive a large number of applications very quickly. These horses can be found by searching the relevant category. If you are looking for a horse who has the potential to be ridden/driven in the future, we do have a range of other categories in our rehoming scheme such as companion with potential, youngster or project horse which are searchable under the ‘Prospect’ category. These categories allow currently non-ridden horses to be rehomed to a suitably experienced home with the aim of bringing them into work in the future. If you’re interested in rehoming a horse with the potential to be brought into work but don’t personally have the experience to back the horse, we would still consider an application if you have an appropriately experienced support network.
What costs are involved in rehoming?
Before you take the horse home you will need to pay a one-off rehoming fee (displayed on the individual horse’s profile) and become a ChampionPlus Member of World Horse Welfare. You will need to maintain this membership for as long as the horse is with you – this is our way of ensuring that all of our rehomed horses are covered by third-party liability insurance. Our horses are not rehomed with any tack, rugs or equipment and rehomers are responsible for all day-to-day costs, including any veterinary fees, as well as transport from and to the relevant rehoming centre.
