Rehoming & Development Manager, Rebecca Evans, said, “I would like to personally thank the owners of Skye and Rocky and their respective applicants for being involved in the programme, without them it would not have happened. It was an incredible experience to be the equine expert for the programme and we hope that its coverage will not only help to raise awareness of the charity’s work but also help the general public to better understand some of the awful circumstances forcing owners to rehome their pets and the safeguards that should be undertaken when rehoming to best ensure the most suitable home is found.”

    It was a great programme and how brave was Kim! I was in tears when she had made her decision and I think all the advise and support she got really helped her accept this very hard adjustment in her life. She knew her horse would get the best in the choice she made and that is really what made it a bit easier to accept. Any horse owner knows that it is always the welfare of their animal that comes first and she was unselfish enough to allow someone else to take over the responsibility to further the horses education and thus making a happier and more content animal. Hats off to Kim!!

    Just to say, I have watched ‘Auf Wiedersehn My Pet ‘ with interest, and thought it showed Horses 4 Homes in a great light.
    Skyes story was very well done , and highlights how important it is to take the time and care, in an informed way, to find horses the right home. I have had personal experience of what a super charity H 4 H is, as you helped me re-home my Harry, which just to let you know, is working out very well.
    What a good and unique charity it truly is, and I would like to soundly congratulate you on your invaluable work!
    Sincerely
    Liz Givens
