AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION
If you are interested in adopting a horse or pony from Windamere, please contact our Horse Manager to discuss your needs. We are committed to finding the ideal match between horse and owner, to ensure that our supporters find the horses best suited to them and that our rescues find safe and caring forever homes. We encourage you to visit and spend some time the horse you may like to adopt before making your decision and submitting your application. Each horse has its own adoption fee, which can increase as its training advances - please just ask.
Thoroughbred gelding, 8yrs, 15.2hh
Bandy retired from racing in early 2018. He was headed for the knackery, but fortunately surrendered to Windamere instead by his loving trainer. After a good spell, Bandy is now learning how to be a pleasure horse. He enjoys the cuddles and chats that come with this more relaxed lifestyle and is progressing well in learning that being ridden is not all about racing. Bandy wears a cribbing collar and would be benefit from electric fencing. He's a sensitive boy who requires a patient, gentle & sensitive rider.
Adoption fee: TBA
Standardbred mare, 8 yrs, 15.3hh
Dora is an affectionate mare & a willing learner, good to float and catch (she'll come to you ) and well-behaved for the farrier, dentist etc. Dora suffers from separation anxiety, which causes her to lose her manners, so needs an owner who will build her confidence. She is not under saddle at present but, with further training, does have potential to be a lovely riding horse.
Like all our horses, Dora has been introduced to natural horsemanship handling. She has been backed and responded calmly, but turned away over the last year. Dora has potential as a project or companion horse for the right person.
Adoption fee: $400.
