Polly is a very pretty mare who was signed over to our care as part of a large welfare concern. We suspect that despite her age she has had very little handling in her previous home. For this reason it is important she goes to an experienced home and a person with the time to help her make up for the education she may have missed in the past. Polly can get unsettled in new situations so would benefit from a routine and consistent handling. Although Polly can be a nervous young lady she is eager to trust her handler and she enjoys a groom and the interaction that comes with that. She is obviously a very affectionate and loving horse and given time and experience to build her confidence we believe she will blossom into a lovely non-ridden companion.
Polly 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 Polly is not suitable to be worked.
Polly was signed over to our care as part of a large welfare concern in November 2021. There were 17 Thoroughbreds in total and most were unhandled.
