About me


Hi Everyone!

My name is Splenda and I am a beautiful sweet natured mare looking for a companion home with someone who is looking for a horse to pamper.

Me and my friends came into the Blue Cross in January 2016 after being rescued by the RSPCA. I was semi-feral at the time having had little handling and any experience I had had was a negative one, however over a year on and I have change hugely having been in a short term companion home.

I had lots of training in my home and my borrowers were very patient with me, taking things at my pace and shaping back if things start to worry me. My confidence has continued to grow over the months, and I now enjoy being handled and groomed. I can still be nervous with my feet and a bit wary to catch in big open spaces, but once settled and in a routine I am very straight forward.

I enjoy coming into a stable for part of the day and am happy to be left alone when my friends are ridden.

If you are interested in re-homing me or any other Blue Cross horse/pony, then please click on the Rehome Me Now link. The Blue Cross holds up to 100 horses and ponies at any one time. Even if Splenda is 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.
