Lloyd’s success after rehoming

Seven-year-old Lloyd was rehomed by Brooke Needham last year as a companion pony and has settled into life in his new home brilliantly. Brooke says:

Lloyd has been with me since October 2023. In this time, it has been one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. Watching him come out of his shell over the months has been nothing short of a miracle. He is thriving in his loan environment and loves taking trips to shows.  

“In June we attended The Royal Cheshire County Show where he came 2nd in the Rescue Equine Showing Society In-hand Rescue Class, qualifying him for the final at Equifest which we will be attending in August.

He is an absolute joy to have at home and he’s fitted in amazingly with all of our other bigger horses. I would urge anyone looking for another horse to look on the World Horse Welfare website and consider rehoming a horse because it is just so, so rewarding.”
