Available for Rehoming

 

All the horses on this page need a ‘forever’ home.

 

Some are available for rehoming now, while others are not yet ready to go (for a variety of reasons). We always put the needs of the horses first.

If you can offer a home to one or more of these wonderful animals, then please email us at

It’s a sad fact that not all horses are born equal; promises made to a new born foal on a stable floor are rarely kept, and many find themselves in difficult circumstances, often suffering from health issues due to neglect. This is the reason Tia exists – to help and assist those who have been failed.

The Shire horse should, in my opinion, be our national breed. Ancestors of our modern day horses, they carried our forefathers into battle, ploughed our fields, and put food on our tables. However, they would again find themselves back on the battlefields, in the mud of The Great War; many would lose their lives alongside their trusted friends. This is sadly reflected in our stud books.

In the 1950’s, less than 50 foals were registered on average each year. However, over the past decade, numbers have slowly increased, with the current average being 287 filly foals per year. This is why the work of Tia is so important; every Shire horse is vitally important in maintaining this majestic breed.

Please help Tia to give their rescued Shire Horses the chance to get a new start.
