Horses Available For Sponsorship

Sponsorship covers basic needs such as food, regular worming and hoof care.

We encourage part-sponsorships so please ask if you would like to donate a smaller monthly amount. All our sponsors will receive a LIFE tote bag and regular updates. If you would like more information about one of our horses please contact Linda at Thank you for your interest in our horses!


Gorda came to LIFE's notice last summer when seen struggling in the local community to pull a heavy cart for her owner. Found by our excellent Chiropractor/Vet to have a pelvic problem, Gorda started to receive treatment, and watching her find relief from the pain through witnessing the transformation in her eyes and body was beautiful to watch. This treatment is ongoing and funded only by donations that we are always so grateful to receive.

Born 2016, Franky was badly mistreated when helplessly lame as a baby, being beaten around his owner's yard, barely able to walk and clearly in pain. Luckily LIFE was alerted and took him into care. He was understandably very shy, but gradually learned that not all people are threatening. He is now a happy, healthy and sweet-tempered pony.

Rossa, rescued some years ago and now Lucy's chief driving pony for Outreach rounds, was, we believe, hit on the face before she came to LIFE. She has always had a sharp reaction to approaches to her head and face, and her tendency to be crabby with others - both horses and people - is almost certainly due to previous mistreatment, but she's loved, and a good worker and herd leader.

Here's the lovely Bexlyin-the-Broad - LIFE's partially sighted recovered rescue case! He is the herd boss and although gelded, enjoys intimate, if chaste, relationships with his little harem of chestnut mares. He a jolly chap on a perpetual diet as he tends to gain weight easily - fat horses are an unusual sight here! Restricted food and more work for you, Bex!

Barcelona is the father of Peterkin who is also under our care. He was a Stallion who had been raced at speed on the local roads. Since he's been with us he’s since been gelded, had his teeth done, and fed up to put weight back on. He looks good now, but really needs financial support for food, anti parasitic treatments and hoof care

Snowdrop was underweight, with an eye injury and in a very downcast way. before we bought him over to the Haven and then his life took off! ‘ He soon felt secure enough to be speedy and cheeky, although always kind, and willing to enjoy a good feed! He loves a grooming and is very affectionate. T

Donna arrived in spring 2018, rescued after being forced to work when ill. Sharp teeth were causing her mouth pain, and she had an eye ulcer, both of which have been rectified. She was also beaten for lashing out but we know now her behaviour is hormonal. A special supplement would with help this.

SELIM (donkey)

Half sponsored!

Selim is lucky enough to have a lovely sponsor who helps to keep him fed and healthy. He's a very fortunate, if somewhat cheeky, donkey, and the LIFE premises wouldn't be the same without him! He's the official LIFE mascot, popping up all over the place in the virtual and the physical!
