My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

2009 Thoroughbred Mare, 16.2h

“Hippo” is a lovely, big-bodied mare who was in a field for several years before arriving to the Center. She is an easy keeper and is gaining confidence daily. She loves to roll in mud puddles and is one of the first at the gate for attention. We have worked with her on the ground, teaching her the groundwork basics. She has been ridden bareback with more under-saddle training to come. She would benefit from a forgiving handler and advanced rider.

Adoption Process

Once a complete application is received, KyEAC will begin the screening process. This usually takes about 2-3 days, depending upon how easy it is to make contact with your references.
KyEAC will notify you when your application has been approved, and you may then make an appointment with KyEAC to visit the equine(s) you are interested in adopting.

Adopters are responsible for transportation arrangements and costs at the time of the adoption and in the event of return.

Adoption fees are non-refundable.

Please also note that Adopter agrees that the adopted equine may not be raced, bred, sold, given away or assigned by the Adopter, except as otherwise provided in the adoption contract.

Further, we require adopters to complete an inspection on the adopted equine at 6 and 12 months after the date of the adoption. Provided the photos and veterinary report from these two inspections are satisfactory, KYEAC will then transfer full ownership of the equine to the Adopter at 12 months via a transfer letter.

More about this rescue

The Kentucky Equine Adoption Center (KyEAC) is the largest all-breed equine rescue in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Nestled on 72 acres in the rolling hills of Jessamine County, KyEAC is the home and training ground for approximately 50 equines at all stages of rehabilitation and retraining. We are not a sanctuary; part of our mission is to find the perfect home and purpose for all of our horses–from high level dressage to therapeutic equine companions, from trail horses to pasture ponies.
