Nemo went to Les Ecuries St Martin in November where Pierre-Yves Girard worked with him. He was ridden in the school, taken out with groups & on several occasions ridden out on his own.

Sadly the girl who hoped to take him on after he was backed decided that her school work meant she couldn’t commit to him. So he is back at Cantemerle wher Helen & the ASHA volunteers are working with him. Photo is of Jason riding him in the school with other horses. We hope he will soon find his forever home

ASHA is now officially closed and confirmed as such by the Prefecture.


However, we are still looking for a home for Nemo. He is a lovely ride but needs to go to an experienced rider. He so enjoys hacking out in the countryside. If you can help please contact Anne:



The ASHA committee would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people who have supported the organization in almost 10 years of existence, in whatever way they have helped us, it is appreciated.


The website will continue until its present contract ends February 2019 and will be updated.


The ASHA Committee is in a good position to offer help and guidance to anyone wishing to start equine rescue charities and will be glad to offer advice.
