HOW DOES IT WORK?
ALL EQUINES ARE RE-HOMED ON A MONITORED LOAN. THIS MEANS THAT LEGALLY THE ANIMAL BELONGS TO EDEN EQUINE. PROSPECTIVE HOMES MUST AGREE TO PROVIDE THE EQUINE A HOME FOR LIFE, HOWEVER, IF SOMETHING UNFORSEEN HAPPENS, AND THE NEW CARETAKERS ARE UNABLE TO CARE FOR THE ANIMAL, THEY MUST BE RETURNED TO THE SANCTUARY. THIS AGREEMENT HELPS BOTH HORSE AND HOME AS WE ARE HERE TO HELP, GUIDE AND MOST IMPORTANTLY SUPPORT YOU AND YOUR NEW FRIEND, AND ENSURES THAT THE ANIMALS DO NOT FALL INTO A RESCUE SITUATION AGAIN.
WHAT WE LOOK FOR IN A HOME
For us to consider you as a potential loan home for one of our equines we ask that you can fulfil these requirements:
You must be over 18 years of age and financially secure enough to look after a horse and their health needs
Have experience at loaning or owning an equine or being fully involved in the day to day care and commitment of this with the ability to have calm, kind and patient handling at all times.
Offer land with a shelter, clean, fresh drinking water and forage available always.
Ideally, we will re-home your equine with another companion of a similar height to minimise the risk of injury. The equine should always have company except for short periods of time ie. When a horse is being ridden out.
We do not re-home equines to be kept singularly in paddocks or confined for excessive periods of time. We believe that the equines need for mutual grooming and play are vital to his/her health and well-being and will only re-home ponies to homes where at least one equine companion is available in the same paddock.
Loaners should also contact Eden Equine immediately if the animal becomes ill, is involved in an accident, is stolen or if advice is needed on any matter.
Eden Equine reserve the right to visit the animal without prior notice to check on his/her progress and well-being.
If you feel that you are able to offer a home, have a read through our equines profiles to find the most suitable match for you and fill out our loan application form.
We will get in touch with you regarding your match and arrange a home visit before meeting the agreed equine.
If your home visit goes well, we can then move forward to you meeting your chosen animal, making sure you are happy with the horse and the horse is happy with you.
We will do a settling in visit 2-4 weeks after you bring your equine home and again in 12 weeks. We are always only a phone call away for any questions or support you may need. From then on we will visit you every 9-12 months and will keep in touch via phone call or e-mails.
We do this to ensure you are well supported with your new rescue while we are able to take help another welfare case. Ask for a copy of our newsletter for updates!
WHAT DOES IT COST?
We ask every new home to donate a fee towards the cost of your equine’s care during their stay with us. The fees vary depending on the time they have spent with us and the amount of training they have received. Please remember, these horses go out on loan with you. Legally the animal will always belong to the sanctuary. If you have any questions, please contact us Telephone 645 293 829.
