We need your help!!

Poppy and Dawn in their foster home - October 2017 (C) D. Walsh
As the evenings get darker and the weather takes a turn for the worst, calls to our helpline quickly increase. Our welfare officers in winter find themselves responding the triple the amount of calls then they would attend in summer months. We can only take in new rescues cases if we can foster out the animals already in our care - perhaps this is where you can help? If you have a space in your herd for a rescue horse or pony please get in touch with us. We have equines in various shapes, sizes and ages that would benefit from wintering with a herd or family. Please consider joining our network of foster homes and help us help the next emergency case. 

LHPR will provide the equine with a rug, headcollar, leadrope and feedbucket. We also cover any vet, farrier and dentistry bills. We are also happy to make arragements for hay and feed.

If you are able to help, please fill in the short form below and we will be in touch with you.
LHPR Tom is available for fostering 
(or rehoming - who knows you might fall in love with him)

He is an 11 year old thoroughbred gelding standing at 16hh.

He is suitable for an experienced rider only. 
He is a true gent of a horse and is very well mannered.

He is best suited living out all year around (if possible) as he tends to stress when stabled. He is excellent for the farrier and travels well.
