Equine Welfare: Our Commitment
The Tinnis Trust is a proud member of Progressive Equine Partnerships, a global organisation dedicated to recognising and building a network of Equine Professionals and Establishments who are putting the welfare of the equine at the forefront of their practice. We are committed to upholding their Guiding Principles.
We work with a diverse range of people and our herd of horses reflects that diversity. All of our horses have been rescued and rehabilitated. They each come with their own story of hope and recovery.
Our horses live in a stable herd with a high standard of welfare that includes open barn group housing and equicentral living systems.
Our horses are occasionally rehomed on a permanent loan basis to approved homes. Horses are regularly checked and can return to us at any time if the loaner's circumstances change. If you would like to rehome a rescued horse, please get in touch today using our contact page!
Rescue and Rehab
Our rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming program focuses primarily on 'last chance' horses who are difficult to place due to health or behavioural issues. Horses are rehabilitated under the supervision of a qualified equine behaviourist using ethical, science-based methods. Many go on to become therapy horses (if health and temperament allow) .
Need a new home for your horse?
Sometimes owners find themselves looking for a new home for a much-loved horse or become overwhelmed and decide to seek help before a horse's welfare begins to suffer. If you would like to discuss donating such a horse, please get in touch using our contact page.
We always appreciate donations of feed, hay, bedding, tack and rugs. Please get in touch if you would like to donate.
