Sometimes when owners can no longer care for their horses,ponies and donkeys they gift them to an association like ERF.  Why?  So they can be found a new home under contract to the association which safeguards their future for life.

Individuals who, for whatever reason, give their equines for free to other individuals always run the risk of their animal subsequently being passed on to who knows where if things go wrong.

As an Association we will always have the equines that are under contract back at any time, they can never be sold on.

Here are the stories of some of the equines we have helped so far…….

If you do not have the facilities or experience to take on an equine yourself, maybe you would consider donating something towards their costs whilst in our care?
