Adopt A Pony

Adopt one of our rescued horses or ponies today and help horses in need have a happy and healthy life.



Following patient training and gentle care with our expert team of grooms, Geronimo has become a confident and happy pony.



Ludo is thriving here at the Sanctuary. He is curious and loves to learn; his favourite activity is doing agility in our arena.

Vogue has settled into life at the sanctuary and her training has gone from strength to strength.


Sir Didymus

Didy continues to prove that the smallest ponies often have the biggest personalities. He’s very curious, confident and can be very stubborn without the encouragement of a tasty treat from his groom! 

What goes in your pack

When you adopt a horse with The Mare and Foal Sanctuary you will receive: a welcome letter, certificate, fact sheet about your chosen pony, A5 photo, bookmark and a tote bag. If you are buying your adoption as a gift for somebody else, you can also include a personalised message.  

Updates are available throughout the year and you can talk to other adopters and get updates on our exclusive Facebook group. 

How your adoption helps the Sanctuary

By adopting, your donation is helping towards our most essential costs and enables us to continue providing expert levels of care to ponies in need.   

As an animal welfare charity, our costs are high as we care for around 200 horses and ponies across our five sanctuaries. Many of our horses and ponies are found underweight or overweight, or traumatised and vulnerable. Grooms work hard every day to rehabilitate each horse and provide them with the care they need. This might include additional visits and check-ups from our vet, extra supplements and nutritional feed, and costly surgeries. Rehabilitation journeys may take much longer for a rescue pony, but we will always be there to provide them with a sanctuary for life.  

By adopting one of our horses and ponies today, you are helping us make sure that equines in need have a safe and loving home for life 

Past Adoption Ponies

Over the years, we have had many horses and ponies available for adoption. These ponies have since gone on to be rehomed,  have become part of our Education and Equine Assisted Services programmes or have sadly passed away. We wanted to honour these ponies, who were not just apart of our lives but a part of yours too.
