Bess Rehomed

Introduction

Bess is ready to be rehomed as a non ridden companion. She is very well mannered and good to handle but sadly cannot be ridden due to mild chronic hind limb lameness. She is absolutely fine to be a companion and could also go for walks in hand. Bess currently lives out 24/7 with other mares on restricted grazing but could be stabled part time if needed. She could also be left on her own for short periods if another horse was ridden.

Temperament

Excellent.

History

Bess originally came in to the care of World Horse Welfare in 2011. She was part of a prosecution case of a large number of horses kept in dire conditions. Sadly while Bess was being cared for she lost the foal she was carrying. When she was well enough to travel, Bess came to live at Glenda Spooner Farm and began the road to recovery. Due to her excellent temperament it was decided that she would become our adoption horse and that is what she did for 2 years before being rehomed as a companion. Sadly, although Bess originally underwent rehabilitation to become a ridden horse, she has a mild, chronic hind limb unsoundness which means she cannot be ridden but could continue to keep active in hand. She recently returned to us after several years and is now ready to find a new home.
