Equine Rehoming Procedure

Please note; Horses are social animals that find comfort and security in a group environment. For this reason Wolfwood will not rehome a horse if they will be the sole horse on the premises.

We are thrilled you are looking to rehome one of our rescue horses! To ensure we find the perfect match for both horse and loaner our rehoming procedure consists of 6 stages which are briefly outlined below.

1. Text or call the wolfwood number with the name of horse wanted/ your personal information/ circumstances.

The information collected via this allows Wolfwood to make a preliminary evaluation as to a loaners desires and asses as to whether any of our horses would be suitable and a chance for you to tell us where the horse will be kept ( Adoptee must own the land)  and your experience with horses.

2. Phone call arranging meet.

This informal chat/ meeting will allow us to better understand your needs and also allow you to ask any questions regarding the chosen horse.

3. Meet your chosen horse.

We will invite you to book an appointment to meet your chosen horse. Here we will ensure that you are comfortable and confident with handling the horse; while also allowing you time to bond with them.
If it is a ridden horse you are viewing, you will be required to ride the horse on a number of occasions to ensure that they are the perfect match for you.
You will be expected to visit the horse on at least 2 occasions (possibly more with a ridden horse) before we are happy to proceed to the next stage.

4. Home check.

When you are certain that you have found the perfect horse we will then arrange a home check to the premises where the horse will be kept. This is too ensure that the area is safe, secure and well equipped for a new equine arrival; we are not looking for perfection.


By the time a horse is suitable for rehoming the charity will have invested a considerable amount of time and money into the animal. Adoption fees can be spoken about over the phone or in person.
