There are lots of neglected animals in the world. Some of them have to suffer all of their lives in abandonment, but thankfully, some of them are rescued before it’s too late. Xanthe was one of these lucky animals. She was rescued by World Horse Welfare and is now placed in a loving forever home. She and her owner, Ann Raeburn, now explore the Scottish Highlands together.
Ann adopted Xanthe from World Horse Welfare 15 years ago. They made their first journey through the hills together in 2009; covering 50 miles in the multiday trip. They now take multiday trips of over 200 miles together. Xanthe is well trained to pull Ann in a cart, but when she has trouble, she doesn’t hesitate to ask for help. Ann then gets off and leads the pony up the hill.
