One of The British Horse Society’s remaining rescue horses, Gypsy, is looking for a new loan home.
Gypsy is a 15-year-old 14.3hh skewbald mare. Her vaccinations and worming are up-to-date and she can live out year-round. She can provide a confident rider with an enjoyable gentle hack, preferably with another horse or pony but she will go out alone. Gypsy requires other equine company when not being ridden. She is a gentle mare who is positive to handle and just needs a confident person if she becomes anxious. Her current guardian states Gypsy is reassured quite easily with a small food reward.
Gypsy has only needed to be loaded into a trailer twice in seven years and although she was rather reluctant, a small bucket of food provided the necessary persuasion. Clipping does provoke some anxiety so she would require sedation.
New guardian(s) will require a good knowledge of horse care and management, especially in relation to an older horse, as she has recently been diagnosed with Cushing’s Syndrome. Her current home is in Somerset and ideally a new home would not be too far away. However, the right home is very important and therefore a location further afield would be considered.
All tack and rugs from Gypsy’s old guardian will kindly be included at no extra cost to her new guardian.
All BHS rescue horses and ponies are rehomed on a loan basis only. Any new potential loan home for Gypsy would be assessed by a member of staff from our Welfare team. Follow-up checks would be conducted annually.
