Companion Ponies

These lovely ponies are looking for homes as companions, some may also be suitable as project ponies. Please read rehoming through our Guardianship Scheme for more information about rehoming from us. 

If you are interested in offering a long-term guardian home to any of our horses and ponies please fill in a Lluest Loan Application Form and post it back to us or alternatively please email equine@lluesthorseandponytrust.co.uk 

Melody is a friendly section a mare in her early teens. She was rescued in foal in Feb 2019 and is waiting for her forever Guardian home. Mel does have sweet itch and will need to wear a fly rug from April through to autumn. Mel would be a great companion to another native type or s horse or pony that doesn’t require a lot of grazing. Although she has not had laminitis with us, she will need her weight managing to ensure she doesn’t get it. 
Timmy is a handsome & cheeky 6yo gelding, he has been lunged and has started long reining. Timmy is good to do in all ways, he can be nippy and because of this he wouldn’t be good around very young children. We would like a home for Timmy that can manage his weight as he is a good doer. We think Timmy would really enjoy a job and would make a fab driving pony.
Rosa is approximately 12hh and 6 years old, she was rescued in February 2020 and was a defensive unhappy little girl. She soon realised that the humans at Lluest weren’t a threat and began to enjoy her interactions, which always meant enjoyable scratches and food. Rosa has a quirky personality and wouldn’t be suitable in a home with young children. She has lived out with mares and gelding’s, foals and yearlings without any issues. Some days Rosa can be loving and enjoy attention and other days she is a typical mare and will pin her ears back the moment you enter her stable. She can have her feet picked out and trimmed, but this is a work in progress as she occasionally decides she isn’t happy with having her feet picked up. She is a very good doer and requires a home that will restrict her grazing and mange her weight appropriately. Despite her little quirks she really is a lovely girl and will thrive in an experienced, confident home. We think in time she would make a lovely driving pony. 
Joey and Rubin Joey is a 9yo piebald 15hh cob gelding, he began his ridden career in a Guardian home, where he went on sponsored pleasure rides. After he was returned, we had some lameness issues investigated and discovered he had spavin.  He has been turned away in a lovely companion home and was field sound, not requiring medication. He has since returned and it was hoped that he would be able to light hack, but due to staff lack of time we haven’t investigated this further. Joey is a playful, friendly gelding, his new home will need to monitor his weight and restrict grazing as necessary. He needs a confident and experienced handler as like most cobs he can be pushy at times.  
Blitzen is a cute 13hh piebald cob gelding, he has been in a guardian home where he became used to children. Blitzen hasn’t started any work towards a ridden career just yet, but if he doesn’t find a home he will be started this year. He will need to have his weight managed and will need restricted grazing. Ideally he would like a home with Lily.
  Lily is an 11hh grey section a mare, she is used to children and is a real sweetheart. She needs to have her weight managed and will need to be on restricted grazing. Ideally she would like a home with Blitzen.
