Our adoption fees are usually as follows (exceptions exist for various reasons):

$400 and up for Well trained horse that are sound or highly adoptable horses due to breed, temperament, etc
$300-350 for Broke to ride Horses that are either green, have minor health issues or advanced age

$200-200 - Unbroke horses, very senior or very young horses

$150 for horses and minis that are pasture companions only or not undersaddle


Rescue expenses preparing our horses for adoption are much greater than our fees could possibly cover. Donations are needed to assure we continue our efforts to rescue dogs.

The fee includes:

  • Board for an average of 4-6 months
  • Dental float ($100 and up)
  • Current coggins ($30)
  • Basic vaccinations ($20)
  • Vet exam
  • Farrier care every 4-8 weeks ($30 per trim)
  • Evaluation to make certain the horses gets the right rider and home
  • One on one training for horses that will benefit from it
  • Gelding, if needed
  • Medications, if needed
  • AN ASSURANCE of the adopter that the horse they adopt has a team behind him or her that will work with the adopter every step of the way to be sure the adoptive horse is a good fit for you - THE ADOPTER!

We are a 501(c)3 Non-profit Organization, so please remember that your adoption fee is only a very small portion of what it costs to care for that horse or pony from rescue through adoption.


OUR GOAL IS A LIFE LONG HOME, SO YOU CAN BE ASSURED THAT WE WANT YOU TO FIND THE RIGHT HORSE FOR YOU!
 We will try to match horse and rider as best we can to assure a forever home for the horse. That is our main concern!

Our time is limited as we are all volunteer operated. Please do not submit an application until you're reasonable certain you are dedicated to the idea of adoption. Make sure you can either supply transport or afford to hire reputable transport for your adoptive horse.

Applications take time to process. We try to make sure they are ran within 2 weeks, but reality can mean a longer wait time. Vet and farriers and other references frequently take quite some time to return phone calls, and our volunteers have to budget application processing into their daily lives. Please be patient!

Over 100 HORSES rescued and/or PLACED and counting for owners unable

to continue care for their horses, rescuers unable to

screen homes, seizures and directly from the rescue!
