Our Horses & Ponies
Pablos was set up over 30 years ago to give a loving permanent home to horses and ponies who through no fault of their own had nowhere to go and in most cases would have been euthanized.
This is still our ethic and our horses are either old, mainly unrideable, on medication or under the care of vets, or just unwanted and dumped.
If we get a healthy, rideable horse we do our best to find it a wonderful new home.
