Please support them in their efforts to improve their skills....... We wish to thank the County of Union for their generous donation of this wonderful piece of equipment, and for sprucing it up for us.

Who We Are

SHOW(School Horses Of Watchung)Retirement Program has been developed by the Watchung Stables Auxiliary to further assist the school horses with their needs as they grow older and are no longer suited for the program. The organization identifies potential adopters to accept the horses and provide a comfortable living arrangement so they can live out their lives while providing companionship to their adopter and/or another horse.

Our Mission Statement

"To provide dignified, healthy and comfortable retirement for the School Horses of the Watchung Stables"

Adopting a friend

For information on possibly adopting a retiree of the Watchung Stables, please e-mail a letter of interest to the SHOW Retirement Program. We will evaluate the request and contact you for further information. Anyone interested in providing an appropriate placement home for our horses is encouraged to send an email to SHOW at the following address. Nancy At SHOW

Adoption forms will be mailed to any person(s) who emails the club expressing an interest in adopting, and once the adoption forms are returned completed, via US mail, they will receive serious consideration from the SHOW Retirement Program.
