About me


Hi All!!

My name is Iris and I am looking for a home as a project pony. I am 13hh and seven years old.

Blue Cross don't know anything about my history but I am very good to handle so must have been around people prior to coming into the centre. I love to be groomed and pampered and get on well with other horses. I have recently had my foal weaned so am now ready to find a home of my own where I can be backed and brought on.

The grooms have done lots of work with me here getting me used to tack and leaning over me in preparation for me being ridden. I have been sat on a couple of times and have taken everything in my stride so far and should make a lovely riding pony.

If you are interested in re-homing us or any other Blue Cross horse/pony, then please click on the Adopt me Now link. The Blue Cross holds up to 100 horses and ponies at any one time. Even if Iris are not available please be assured Blue Cross are still actively trying to find you a suitable match for your needs and we will be in contact if successful.

Sponsor a pet as a gift for your loved one from as little as 70p a week, and they will receive monthly updates from real homeless pets in our care who are just waiting to meet their new families. Your chosen friend or family member will also receive a downloadable certificate from each of the dogs, cats, small pets and horses they’ve helped to find loving new homes.
