Breed Society Appeals to its Members for Homes to Come Forward

Rebecca Evans, Rehoming Manager for Horses4Homes said “The assistance Breed Societies can provide in appealing to their membership for suitable homes to come forward for unwanted horses cannot be underestimated.  Breed Societies have a huge outreach to responsible horse owners and it only takes one suitable home to come forward to potentially save a life.”
Mrs Bentham from Carmarthen in South Wales bred Pinky ( Pharach Raindance) an Appaloosa cross Morgan 5 years ago due to her love of Western Riding and the American breeds.   Despite being advertised for sale for sometime her owner was struggling to find her a suitable loving home.  This was not a problem she had encountered previously,  simply a reflection of the current market which  is proving a huge problem for horse and pony breeders across the region.
Following a  meeting with the British Horse Society where a number of breed societies gather to discuss welfare issues, The Appaloosa Horse Club were inspired to do their bit to help the unwanted horses of Great Britain.  Sue Feast, Director of the Appaloosa Society canvassed her members to help breeders such as Mrs Bentham. After a matter of hours the appeal generated 3 potential applicants of which one has succeeded to become Pinky’s new owner through the Horses4Homes application process much to the delight of Mrs Bentham.  The Society has a result become familiar with the safeguards in place that Horses4Homes has to offer and as a result can recommend the system to its membership, some of whom may be in a similar position to Mrs Bentham.
