Ilyssa is being rehomed on FOSTER SCHEME Ilyssa is a very loving sweet young horse who loves people and is very friendly.

Ilyssa is a very loving sweet young horse who loves people and is very friendly. She would be best suited to a confident and knowledgeable home who are experienced in handling youngsters to continue her training.

She needs a home where she won’t be expected to be left on his own whilst other horses are worked, as she does not cope with this. She ties up on the yard to be fussed and groomed and watch the world go by. She is used to seeing both the vet and the farrier.

Ilyssa has seen some traffic around the yard including larger machinery e.g. tractors. She just requires confidence from the handler. She has minimal experience with traffic and out on the road so he would need further training in this.

Due to the nature of being a young horse Ilyssa would need consistency and time to develop and gain the confidence she needs to further her education, so a good routine would really help her.

Ilyssa is looking for a home where she can continue her in hand training, getting some experience and one-to-one care until she is mature enough to return to the Sanctuary to begin ridden work and further assessment of her suitability for our education programmes.

Applications for Ilyssa for a permanent rehome will not be considered at this time.

Become a Sanctuary at Home Carer

To help you become a Sanctuary at Home Carer, we have a dedicated team managing our scheme and their job is to help find the right equine for you and then support you throughout your rehoming experience.

Our Pathways

We have three rehoming pathways within our Sanctuary at Home scheme. These are:

Prime Pastures

This scheme enables us to rehome horses and ponies with long-term medical conditions that are manageable. You'll be required to help support their condition with regular monitoring and we contribute towards the costs of their veterinary treatments.


Working alongside us to socialise and train young or rideable horses for future work in our education programmes. You'll help provide a home setting for these horses to mature before returning to the Sanctuary for further assessment. We work closely with you to keep up to date records of their training, achievements, milestones, setbacks and all aspects of their care.


Means you help provide a sanctuary at home for as many years as you can for a horse or pony from our charity on a loan basis.
