Harley is a beautiful Chestnut thoroughbred mare. She is an ex-racehorse who came into the charity in December 2002. She was discovered on a yard where she had been shut in a stable for six months as they could not cope with her behavioural issues.
On arrival she went through a rehabilitation programme where it was discovered she suffers from ‘kissing spine’ which is when sections of bone attached to the vertebrae are too close together and impinge on each other. We also found her to be a very insecure mare and she has to be carefully managed so she has a group of equine friends to live with, she will often get stressed if only with one other horse. As long as she is managed correctly Harley has a super temperament and loves people.
Because of her attachment to other horses she does not cope well with change and become very stressed - for this reason she will never be re-homed and will stay here at HorseWorld, where she is happy and settled, for the rest of her days.
