Many of the rescue horses and ponies arrive at Shy Lowen with behavioural problems and are handled using training methods based on Intelligent Horsemanship, making learning as easy and stress-free as possible.
Horses and ponies are rehomed on a permanent loan basis once their health is restored and rehabilitation is complete. Those who are not suitable for rehoming are cared for by the sanctuary and are available to the public for sponsorship. In some cases, a direct home transfer can be arranged without the need for the horse to go into the sanctuary.
As well as supporting a team of young volunteers at the sanctuary, they also provide therapy facilities for local schools and groups for individuals who find benefit from equine-assisted learning and therapy.
