My story

Meet DREAMER! A young (June 9, 2018) registered Belgian gelding who is ready for training! Dreamer has had 30 days of groundwork training before coming to SHARE. This BIG - over 17 hands - guy is ready to begin to be driven or put under saddle. SHARE has been working with Dreamer, lunging him wearing a saddle, walking him around the farm with the saddle on. This past week in January 2023 Dreamer had a rider! He did very well, no bucks, no tantrums - nothing. Just went to work with Robert, who will be continuing to work with Dreamer under saddle and get some miles on him. At this time Dreamer is GREEN GREEN! But with regular work, he should be doing great. Since Robert has been working with Dreamer this spring, he has had several beginners on him and Dreamer just went to work, but he will still need an experienced rider. He has been a "steady Eddie" type of guy. With more wet saddle pad time, he will be ready to go trail riding. He could be the horse you've been looking for.

UPDATE - Dreamer has been ridden by rank beginners to experienced riders and he is a Steady Eddie-type of a horse. He has been eager to please and not "excitable."

His adoption fee is $2,800. Dreamer is available for adoption in Illinois or within a 3-hour driving radius of Champaign County, Illinois.

About Us

Our mission is to maintain the integrity, well-being, and health of hooved animals through education first.

SHARE is a nonprofit humane society established in 2005 in the Champaign area. We have investigators that cover a large portion of Illinois.

At SHARE, our goal is to help equines trapped in situations of abuse and starvation. It is also our wish as well to educate horse owners on how to properly care for their horses.

The humane society offers to help educate owners on the proper daily care and maintenance; vetting and hoof care as well as nutrition and emergencies. The society also rescues severely neglected horses and provides rehabilitation services and placement through adoption.

This is not an easy task; many volunteers are needed in order to provide this care and support. There are many people who are not aware of hooved animals that are abused and neglected. SHARE would like to inform people about this
