Facts about Holly $1800

  • Breed: Thoroughbred Mix
  • Color: Bay
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large
  • Sex: Female
Holly is a 2002 model 16.3 hand Thoroughbred mare. She wasn't very fast so didn't stay long on the track. By the time we got her in May 2016, she was extremely neglected in poor body condition, very weak and sore from muscle atrophy and starvation, and had very neglected hooves. After a veterinary treatment and a veterinary feed plan, she's now feeling great, at a healthy weight, and sound for riding.

Holly has received about 30 days of groundwork training and has just started under saddle training at Sweet Carolina Acres During her groundwork training, she learned to lead, trailer load, stand well for the farrier, stand calmly tied, and do several groundwork exercises. She has great ground manners. Since starting under saddle work last week, Holly has made great progress in transitioning from racehorse training to general riding. While of course we can't expect perfection in such a short period, she is showing great potential! We think she would do very well in dressage with continued training. We are often asked about jumping as her size and conformation suggest that she would excel at that. At this point, she hasn't built the muscle strength to jump so we do not yet know if jumping would be a good career for her.

Holly is offered for adoption at $1800 which includes continuing in professional training through Feb 20th. At that point, we expect her to be suitable for an intermediate rider, perhaps an advanced beginner - it just depends on how quickly she progresses. Her adoption fee likely will increase as she progresses in training. Holly can be seen and ridden in Greenwood SC at our trainer's house anytime - just send in an adoption application (no obligation to actually adopt just for sending in the application) and we will get a time set up for you to ride her!

Our rescue is in Seneca SC. Our horses are current on basic vaccines, dentistry, hoof care, Coggins, and are microchipped.

To be considered for adopting Holly, go to and fill out an adoption application. This doesn't obligate you to adopt, it just gets you approved so that we can have you meet and ride Holly. If you don't hear from us within 2 business days of sending in an application, then call us at 864-972-9994 or email You can also email with any questions about Holly.

Holly will sell with a no breeding contract.

About CARE - Crossroads Animal Rescue

About Our Shelter...

CARE was founded to decrease euthanasias in Oconee County, SC. We primarily aquire animals from the local animal control. Most of these pets would be euthanized if we did not take them. Once in our program, they are adopted out through us or transfered to another rescue/shelter where they are not at risk for euthanasia.
We work primarily with puppies and kittens as this is the age group most likely to be euthanized at our local animal control.
Our equine rescues are primarily neglect cases from animal control. We design feeding programs for them to gain weight back safely, provide hoof care, and treat any medical problems. Once healthy enough to adopt, we find them loving homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Come to 8409 W. Oak Hwy, Seneca, SC anytime during business hours to meet our on-site pets. Our on-site pets are primarily puppies in the 4-6 month range and all ages of kittens and cats. To meet a pet in a foster home (this includes most young puppies as well as most adult dogs and all the horses), call or email to schedule a time. We will arrange to have the dogs/puppies brought to the clinic for you to meet or arrange for you to go to the foster home where the horse is staying.
We periodically have adoption events where we take some of our adoptable pets. Follow us on Facebook to learn of adoption events.

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt a pet from CARE, contact us and give us the information for our adoption application. This can be via phone or by going to our website, downloading the adoption application, and filling it out and emailing it to us.
Once we receive your application, we will contact your vet references and review the application to approve you. This can usually be done on the same day you apply. Sending in the application does not obligate you to adopt.
You may meet our onsite pets prior to filling out the application if you prefer. For off site pets, we do request an approved application before scheduling a meeting.
To adopt after being approved, you simply pay the adoption fee and take your new family member home! You may adopt over the phone and then schedule to travel to meet your new pet. Adopting over the phone does require paying the adoption fee which is non-refundable if you change your mind about adopting.
Adoption fees vary depending on which pet you are interested in. These are often listed on the pet's profile but if not, feel free to email or call to ask.
We are available for phone calls weekdays 8a-5p and Saturdays 8a-Noon. You will reach the receptionist for Crossroads Animal Hospital which is the vet hospital who founded CARE. After working hours, we can be reached via email which is usually checked daily but may take up to 48 hours for a reply.
