Jericho is a 6 year old stallion and was found in the woods by two young lads who looked after him for three months.
They built him a shelter and found food for him, but soon realised that he needed more help, so they contacted the SPA who contacted Phoenix and eventually ASHA was called in.
He is a delightful animal with a very sweet nature and could become a perfect children’s pony. At some point he was “backed” but hasn’t been ridden.
The owners agreed to cede him to ASHA and he is now officially an ASHA horse.
ASHA, the SPA & Phoenix volunteers arranged for his feet to be trimmed and his castration and visited every day after the operation to feed him, administer drugs, clean the wound and walk him around.
The two young lads came to wish him farewell when he was transported to his new temporary home and they are sad to see him go but pleased that he will have a very bright future thanks to ASHA.
Jericho will spend at least 3 months in foster care before being found a new “forever” home.

November 2016 - Jericho is being trained at Ecurie St Martin
Jericho is being trained by Pierre Yves at Ecurie St Martin and is enjoying being part of the riding school lessons. He is very easy to handle and has even had a go at jumping. He is a great favourite with the young students and will make a wonderful children's pony.
Chloe rode Jericho in her lesson this morning. She was very tense and worried she would hurt him and found dressage hard on him but PY was not at all worried and told her to just ride him as if he was her favourite pony 'Banjo’.
Towards the end she was more relaxed and they did some lovely jumping. He is very chilled with all the other horses.
He is now ready to go to his 'forever' home
Jericho has found his forever home with a lovely family which includes three children of varying ages.
He will be in a herd of four other horses.
We are so happy that he has found such a lovely home.
Jericho is happy and enjoying being part of his new family
