Our horses are taken from bad situations by law enforcement agencies in IN, KY, IL, and OH. We also take animals from other shelters that cannot continue to house them.We adopt to only midwestern states so that we are able to receive regular updates and verify that an adopted horse is doing well. All horses listed for adoption have been professionally evaluated and trained. We do not adopt horses to individuals wanting an unbroke horse to train.
Our Adoption Process:
There is an application to fill out telling us about your housing and experience level with horses. A visit will then be required to meet some horses that may be a good fit for you. If the horse seems to be comfortable with your riding style, an adoption contract is signed and the horse has a new home! Our adoption fees vary based on the skill, training, and age of the horse being adopted. Average fees for trained trail horses range from $600-900.
Why should you adopt?
horses can make wonderful pets, and rather than buying a horse for sale or finding a horse breeder, adopting a horse from
an animal shelter or rescue organization is the perfect way to add a horse to your family.
Keep in mind, there is a lot you will need to know when you provide a home for
a horse. You will need to learn what to feed them, how much exercise or
attention your horse needs, and many other important things about how to
house and care for a horse. There are different types of horses
including Andalusian, Appaloosa, Appendix, Arabian, Belgian, Clydesdale, Curly Horse, Donkey/Mule/Burro/Hinny, Draft, Friesian, Gaited, Grade, Gypsy Vanner, Haflinger, Lipizzaner, Miniature, Missouri Foxtrotter, Morgan, Mustang, Norwegian Fjord, Paint/Pinto, Palomino, Paso Fino, Percheron, Peruvian Paso, Pony - Chincoteague, Pony - Connemara, Pony - Dales, Pony - Dartmoor, Pony - Fell, Pony - New Forest, Pony - Other, Pony - Shetland, Pony - Welsh, Pony - of America, Quarterhorse, Rocky Mountain, Saddlebred, Standardbred, Tennessee Walking Horse, Thoroughbred, Trakhener, and Warmblood.
Pet adoption saves lives. Adopt a pet and you'll have a friend for life! Please consider a rescue pet before you buy a pet from a breeder or pet store. Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
