Ebony's Story

  At 17.5 hands, Ebony is the gentle giant of the sanctuary.​​

 Ebony was the first horse that Nigel rescued.
Brought in by the RSPCA in 2006, she was found abandoned with no food or water.

She was so emaciated, she was barely
able to lift her neck up.

Nigel has spent a lot of time building up
​her health and her  trust.

Pagham Ponies has cared for Ebony for over 11 years.
The “before“ picture (below left) shows Ebony just 6 weeks
after Nigel took her in. 
She was showing a vast
improvement but was scared of everything and
​as you can see, she was still terribly thin.
