About: Cariad is a sweet and easy pony to do in all ways including to clip, she is excellent with children and has the potential to be brought on as a lead rein pony by an experienced guardian home. Cariad can live in a mixed herd, she is equally as happy to live out and also to be in a stable. She is a very good doer and needs strict weight management. 

Ideal Home:  Cariad currently lives on a grass track with 2 other Shetlands and a section a gelding. She had a chaser type clip in winter to help her lose weight. Her ideal home will be a proactive home who will ensure she remains a healthy weight through a combination of exercise and restricted grazing. Cariad will need companions with similar needs to her own.

Cally Direct Rehome – Reserved

Age: 14 years old

Height: 15hh approx


Welsh cob mare, registered green passport name Llanidan Showgirl. She is currently owned by one of our guardian homes, unfortunately her health and that of her husbands is declining and she is forced to give up horses, the one we own which is a companion to Cally will come back to us and we are hoping to find Cally a home to go directly to. She will be signed over to us and rehomed in the same way we rehome all our horses and ponies.

Below is what her owner has told us –

Cally has been with my best friend then myself since she was 5 months old .I had her broken in and enjoyed many rides out with her with friends but sadly had to give up riding after issues with my hips .

Cally has no ailments .She is a confident happy horse that loves a fuss and a good grooming session loves attention and loves to learn. Excellent with the farrier , good with the vet and dentist.

If the new home would like her to be ridden she would need bringing back into work gently/slowly as it has been 4 years since she was last ridden, she would also need her saddle fitted by a qualified saddle fitter. Cally has only ever been ridden in company she would not be suitable to someone who wishes to ride out alone.Excellent in traffic when out . Hasn’t done any jumping and schooling as she has only ever hacked out .If ridden she needs to be shod all round , as her hooves are quite flat. When she was ridden previously she had a stiffness in her back but a session with the osteopath every 6 months sorted it out.

Ideal Home: An experienced home who wants a lovely companion or happy hacker.
