Marvin came to us as a desperate colt foal, discovered by one of Northumberland County Council’s Animal Welfare Team. He had been abandoned – left tied to the railings of a derelict school, with two others, who we named Doogie and Donald.

Their filthy, matted coats barely disguised their skeletal little bodies. Riddled with lice and suffering from a heavy roundworm burden, they quickly lay down together in the deep straw bed, munching quietly on hay. It’s always good for the team at times like this, to know they have found a bit of horsey heaven.

Marvin has been with us for five years now, stands 13.2hh and was started under saddle this summer with the team at Robinson’s Equiteach. He has matured into quite a character – a real attention seeker. If he was human he would be Jim Carey – mildly irritating but always good for a laugh!

Marvin will be ready for our Loanie Pony Scheme soon and we look forward to finding his perfect partner.

Here4Horses from Here4Horses

At Here4Horses, we believe that all horses and ponies deserve kindness, respect and knowledgeable care.

If you share our belief, then sponsoring one of our horses or ponies is a great way to help make a real difference.

It takes time and expertise for us to bring a horse back to its best, they all have individual needs. During the rehabilitation process we desperately need sponsors to help fund accommodation, care and training. When we are sure the healing process is complete, only then do we look for a foster carer or second chance home.

We have many ponies currently in our care or out in foster homes, all seeking a friend to sponsor them. Click Here to see our stable of ponies on our website.

Rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing horses is not an easy task. Being a sponsor means you are giving vital funds to help us to provide expert care to neglected and unwanted animals.

Your money goes directly towards their rehabilitation including stabling, veterinary and training fees.
