Thank you to all the crew at Cobh rescue for making the whole process of fostering ponies and adopting Lexie so easy.

You were always available if we ever needed you and were incredibly helpful. We were blessed to have met you & adopted Lexie who is one of the family and continues to work her magic as companion to our mare.

 Lexie is even showing signs of being a good riding pony, which we are excited to explore this Summer! We would recommend rescuing a pony to anyone willing to give them the life & home they deserve- and particularly from Cobh rescue. We will definitely come back if we ever have the space for another pony.

Cobh Rescue Horses are simply fantastic! Having never been through an adoption process before, I was apprehensive, but i needn’t have been. The adoption process was straightforward and led by a friendly and knowledgeable representative.

The home visit gave us the opportunity to ask questions about Bonnie and if there was anything we could do to improve our humble facilities for her arrival. We love our CRH rescue pony, Bonnie, and we are dedicated to her care for life.  

Knowing that CRH were there throughout the process, and ongoing if needed, made me feel so much more confident in taking on a new pony, especially knowing she already had her passport and full vet and farrier care. What amazing care! Thank you CRH for giving these beautiful beings the life they deserve.

Christina Hawe,


I had been searching for a rescue horse for several months before finding Cobh Rescue. Tara was so kind and helpful, spending time sending photos of various possibilities. Then “Ozzie” appeared and it was love at first sight! Cobh Rescue Horses cares so much about their animals, putting heart and soul into their care and rehoming. It was a happy day when Ozzie was delivered to Mayo. His name is now Dakota (Cody). He and his donkey companion are happy up in their hills. I am most grateful to Cobh Rescue for helping me find him! 💜
