About me

Youngster Project

Hi Everyone!

My name is Lionel and I am a lovely young gelding looking for either a home as a companion or one where I can be backed and brought on.

Since being at the centre my groom has taught me a lot. I have learnt to stand nicely to be groomed and have my feet picked out. I am good to lead and am happy to be part stabled. I get on well with other horses but having just been gelded I can only live with other geldings at the moment.

I am quite sensitive to touch so would be just as happy in a companion home as I would a ridden home.

If you are interested in rehoming me or any other Blue Cross horse/pony, then please click on the “Rehome me!” link. The Blue Cross holds up to 100 horses and ponies at any one time. Even if Lionel is not available please be assured we are still actively trying to find you a suitable match for your needs and we will be in contact as soon as we do.

Does your loved one have room in their heart, but not in their home, for a pet of their own? Blue Cross sponsorship is the perfect present for animal lovers.

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.
