Your friend for life could be waiting for you at LHPR...
In order to be eligable to rehome from us you will need at least the following: Equine Premises Registration Number (EPN), Grazing and Shelter facilities.
Rehoming a horse or pony from LHPR is a very rewarding experience. We strive to make the whole process as quick and easy as possible. Please read on below at the three stages involved.
Please note: Adoptions are done on a first come first served basis 

Meet and greet and some paperwork
(dont worry it's not much!)

Home Visit

Take your friend home!

Once this form is received in the post and approved by our adoption coordinator, we will be in touch to arrange a detailed homevisit. Please allow up to 72 hours for application approval or refusal
(we are all volunteers)

One of our friendly welfare officers will carry out a homevisit (homecheck) of the location you propose to keep the equine(s) at. He or she will check areas such as grazing, stabling facilities, any field shelters etc.  A homecheck is also our chance to meet the family and to ensure the setting is right for the equine. A homecheck is nothing to worry about, we are not here to judge.

Feel free to use this opportunity to ask as many questions as you need too!
Once the homecheck has been passed and If both parties still wish to proceed with the adoption process we will arrange for you to meet the equine one last time before you take him or her home
(this is optional).
You will now enter into a loan agreement (legal binding contract) with L.H.P.R.
(You will be required to complete one last document)

An adoption donation of €300/€400 (each equine has their own fee) is requested for all equines - this must be paid before the animal leaves our premises. This is non refundable.

As the adopter you will be required to collect the equine yourself. (If you are really stuck we can arrange this but a fuel charge will apply)
Before anything you need to draw your full attention to our adoption policy. After reading this and you wish to proceed you will need to make an appointment​ to meet the horse/pony you are interested in. This is to determine if you are a good match for eachother.

If this visit goes well and you wish to proceed you will complete an adoption application form
(this will either be posted to you or given to you in person on the day of visit)
To arrange a viewing appointment please call Michelle on 0469450512 (Choose option 2)

If you cant adopt - why dont you consider fostering instead?

Foster is the temporary placement of an equine into someone’s care either to free up space at our rescue centre for an emergency or to allow the animal to mature before being rehomed. Sometimes we use foster as an opportunity to give our rescued equines a little holiday - we all deserve one!!
Foster is short term while adoption is envisaged to be permanent.

A rehoming success story
(just one of many!!)
Bella was rescued by our welfare team in 2014 after being abandoned on a country road. She was very nervous of humans when she first arrived but it wasnt long before she knew she could trust us all at LHPR. She then went out to foster with Tara who started her under the saddle. She is now in a fantastic home with Jill. Both Bella and Jill have a wonderful and touching bond with eachother. Jill competes Bella in jumping leagues and she also appeared in the rescue class at The Royal Meath show last year!

We are very grateful to Jill and her very supportive parents for for giving Bella a wonderful home!
