History:  Dyson originally came in to World Horse Welfares care in November 2013. He was part of a very large group of horses that were rounded up and taken to Hall Farm in Norfolk. They were all unhandled and a lot of time was spent desensitizing them. Dyson and three other ponies were transferred to Glenda Spooner Farm in March 2014 and continued their handling once settled in to a routine. Dyson was rehomed November 2014 but has recently return from due to change in circumstances for his rehomer.

Potential:   We are looking for a special home for Dyson who is a non ridden companion. He is a friendly, responsive pony who is excellent in the field and loves company.Dyson would suit a home where he is not left on his own as he does become very anxious. Dyson’s confidence has come on leaps and bounds with a very natural approach which has been rewarding not only for his handler but for him as well. It would be wonderful if, in his new home, he could continue with this ground work which would strengthen the bond between horse and handler. He lives out 24/7 on restricted grazing to prevent obesity and is very relaxed with other geldings. If he were to be stabled at all it would be best to introduce this to him gradually in a routine. Dyson deserves to find a quiet home with someone looking for a great field companion and who has some time to spend with this intelligent, native pony.
