Spike is a 13.1hh three-year-old piebald cob who is an exceptionally sensible pony with an old head on young shoulders.

He originally came to the World Horse Welfare rescue centre at Hall Farm in Snetterton in February 2011 after being found locked in a lorry container with another pony. Both ponies were thin and in poor condition.

After being expertly rehabilitated by the staff at Hall Farm, Spike shows every promise of making a brilliant ridden pony when he is older as he is just so laid back and calm. Spike loves to play with his young companions but if it all gets a bit too boisterous he will wander off to amuse himself.

Spike is very well mannered and polite in every way, making him exceptionally easy to handle and care for. He is amazing for such a young pony and a firm favourite with the staff.

We are looking for a home where he can grow and develop physically before being broken in by a rehomer with experience of youngsters who has broken in horses in the past. This gentle, willing pony is a rare find.

If you are interested in rehoming Spike or would like to see other rescued horses and ponies who are looking for new homes, then visit our website at You can also contact Hall Farm on 01953 499100. Hall Farm welcomes visitors to meet our friendly horses and ponies between 10am and 4pm on a Wednesday, Saturday or Sunday.
