Apple learning to be driven Apple on arrival

Apple came into World Horse Welfare’s care in April 2016 when a concerned local had rescued her from a busy main road. She was very underweight and whilst her rescuer would have loved to keep her, they simply did not have the resources to care for her. Her owner could not be located so she was signed over into World Horse Welfare’s care and travelled to the charity’s Hall Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre.

Apple's foal StrudelStraightaway her kind temperament and easygoing nature was very clear. The team also realised Apple was heavily pregnant and just a couple of months after arriving she gave birth to a healthy colt foal which the team named Strudel! Once Strudel had been weaned, Apple could begin her rehabilitation and training ready to be rehomed. She proved herself a very capable little pony and her groom knew she had a lot of potential for the future.

Apple learning to be drivenApple is 13.1hh, 6 years old and is looking for a home as a driving pony. She is affectionate, very sensible and great to handle – getting on well with both horses and humans alike. She has completed the early stages of learning to wear a harness and be driven so needs an experienced home to continue her education and build her confidence. Apple will make a rewarding and enjoyable project for someone who has had previous driving experience with novice ponies.

In addition you always have the reassurance that if your circumstances change, you can return the horse or pony to World Horse Welfare at any time.

Rehoming not only gives a very special horse or pony the chance to reach their full potential but you are also enabling the charity to help more horses and ponies in need of help by freeing up much-needed space in its four Rescue and Rehoming Centres.
