Rescuing an animal and bringing it into the security of the Charity is just the beginning of what may be a long road to recovery. Rehabilitation can take weeks, months or even years but by providing good care, veterinary support and kind handling, most horses will develop trust. Others may never accept human contact. The Charity works closely with each animal, ensuring their rehabilitation programmes are tailored to each of their individual needs. Many horses are rehabilitated to a point where they can go on to enjoy life in a carefully selected foster home. Those that are elderly, have ongoing health issues or remain very nervous will stay with us here at the Charity.
