Marmite is a lovely character, he is good to catch, lead and will stand nicely to be groomed.

Marmite is being rehomed as a non ridden companion.

Marmite is a lovely character, he is good to catch, lead and will stand nicely to be groomed.

He would benefit from a home with a quiet and patient handler who can provide a good routine for him as he can take a while to settle in a new environment.

He is well behaved for the vet and farrier once settled.

He doesn’t settle if left by himself so will need a home where he will always have equine company.

Although Marmite is being re-homed as a companion, he is active and enjoys going on walks and could do some horse agility. Due to his type, Marmite is looking for a home where his weight can be managed. With correct grazing, shelter and rugs he would be happy living out 24/7 but equally could be stabled for part of the time. He does have mild sweet itch which is managed.

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.
