Poppy is a gentle, laid-back pony who enjoys the attention of her human and equine companions.

Poppy is looking for a home as a companion equine.

Poppy is a gentle, laid-back pony who enjoys the attention of her human and equine companions. She is straight forward to handle and is an affectionate girl. She enjoys having a groom and will stand well for her handler, vet and the farrier.

Being a smaller native type, Poppy is a good doer so will be best suited to poor grazing to keep her at a healthy weight. Her ideal home would be with an equine with similar grazing requirements. She is happy to live out or be part stabled. She has lived with mares and geldings in the past.

Poppy has PPID (cushings) and is on daily medication for this and will need her teeth checking regularly by a vet. She is being rehomed on our Prime Pastures scheme, where we can contribute towards the cost of her veterinary care.

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.
