Disney is a very handsome chap that is looking for a new home where he can fulfil his potential as a driving pony. He has taken very well to work and is happily long reining around the farm in a driving harness. Disney has progressed to pulling a tyre which didn’t faze him in the slightest. He is a very laid-back gelding that enjoys his work and having a wander around the countryside. We are looking for an experienced driving home to take him on loan to bring him on further. Disney is extremely easy to handle and enjoys the quiet life, not much bothers this chilled out wee cob! He adores company and is often seen playing with his pals in the field. Disney was originally part of a welfare case so was gelded later in life meaning that he cannot live with mares. Due to the conformation of Disneys back he did not remain comfortable in ridden work but should make a brilliant driving pony with further education. He is well behaved for both our vet and farrier. Disney likes nothing more than coming in for some attention and having a pamper which does take a while with his impressive mane and feathers. He is a bit of a poser and knows how handsome he is. Disney must watch his waistline in a new home and needs to be kept on restricted grazing, especially during the summer months. Due to this he is best suited to living with other good doers. He is a very hardy pony so is more than happy to live out all year round with shelter. Disney doesn't enjoy living with just one other pony so is better suited to living in a herd and will always need company in the field. If you think Disney sounds like the right driving pony for you, please apply online.
Disney can be driven.
Disney originally came into World Horse Welfare care in 2013 as part of a welfare case with thirteen other ponies.

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.
