A RSPCA rescue pony has found a new home at Askham Bryan College’s centre in Stewart Park.

The pony, which was rescued by the RSPCA before finding temporary residency at Middlesbrough-based Robinson’s Equi Teach yard, has been handled by the College’s students since summer before moving on campus in late December.

Noo-Noo, one of five ponies in a roadside abandonment case named after Teletubbies characters, will join the three resident Shetland ponies at the centre and be looked after by the College’s Animal Care & Management students.

Level 3 Animal Management student Tom Allen said: "I am really pleased Noo Noo has moved on campus. It has given us the opportunity to learn more about horses and their care as part of our studies, as well as gain skills in responsibility and compassion."

After a year of being fostered at Stewart Park, Noo-Noo will be broken in and available for a permanent home.

Lecturer and Level 3 Equine Course Manager Catherine Fairburn, said: “We’re proud to have welcomed the College’s first rescue pony to Stewart Park. We believe that, following a year of care with our students, Noo-Noo will be in fantastic health and ready to move on.”
