Can you break an ISPCA pony?
Are you experienced in breaking young horses and ponies? Could you donate your time and experience to help the ISPCA?
There are up to 70 horses and ponies in the ISPCA centres in Longford and Mallow who need to be rehomed in order to make room for more desperate animals in need of care.
However, many of these horses and ponies are unbroken and are less attractive to potential foster families.
Barbara Bent of the ISPCA has appealed for help from experienced equestrian people who could help her break these animals and immediately increase their appeal for rehoming.
"I have some really fabulous horses and show-quality ponies that will make brilliant family horses in time to come but the problem is that nobody wants to take an unbroken animal," she explained.
"I would love if there were people out there who could help us by taking these animals for a short time to be broken and ridden.
"Mallow has only rehomed 10 animals so far this year and we have never had such nice horses.
"This time last year we had rehomed 25."
