Sussex equine rehabilitation company seeks new home

AN ORGANIZATION that rehabilitates rescue horses faces uncertainty when asking to find a new home.

The Equine Gentling Community Interest Company is looking for ten or more acres of land for their horses that have been rescued or rehomed.

They are currently grazing in the village of North Chailey near Lewes but have had to move to protect the land.

Owner and founder Dan Corbin said: “We always move on when the country has given all it can – it needs to rest now.

“Most of our herds were previously domesticated but have been grazing wild for several years and that makes them fantastic conservation pastures.”

Still looking for an “eternal home” of around 60 acres to move to permanently, the company has made the decision to suspend herd visits and individual sessions until they can stop moving from one property to another.

The Argus: The nonprofit has been forced to put their herd visits on hold until they've found an'eternal home'.The nonprofit has been forced to put their herd visits on hold until they find a “forever home.”

Mr Corbin said: “We are devastated to have to turn visitors away, but our continued uncertainty about where we will graze next is causing too much disruption for the very people we are trying to support.

“Our vision remains the same, a community herd that shares kindness and agency with horses and people alike.

“To do that, we have to be in one place all year round.”

The company will continue the lifelong care and rehabilitation of its rescue horses and will reach out to the community through pony walks, off-site open houses and participation in local nature days and festivals.

Anyone who can help Equine Gentling find a new piece of land to graze is urged to get in touch via their website or email equinegentling@gmail.com.

The nonprofit has also launched a fundraiser to help feed the horses during the drought after the extremely warm weather left the herd with no grass or foliage to graze.

People can donate to their JustGiving fundraiser at justgiving.com/crowdfunding/equinegentlinghay.
