Ilyssa is a gentle 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 larger youngsters to continue her training.

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. She is very calm and relaxed and is regularly groomed by our volunteers.

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

Ilyssa will need her weight managing to prevent her from being over weight as she puts on weight quickly. She is good with electric fencing and happy to be left in a stable whilst her companions go off to be exercised.

Ilyssa has a mild hindlimb lameness that means she is unsuitable for ridden work, however she is paddock sound and comfortable to be a non-ridden companion

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.

Foster

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.

Standard

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.
