Are you looking for a new companion?

Adoption of the equines in our care is our ultimate goal.  However, not all of the animals in our program are ready to be placed.  We classify our animals according to their abilities and status.


Once an animal has had their health care fully updated and had their training addressed, we list them for adoption. Their skills vary from wonderful pets to good trail riding partners. Our policy on equine placement is full disclosure of what we know. We are happy to connect you with our vets and farriers if you have further questions.

In Training

Our training process for equines who have not been handled often takes many months. On the other hand, some animals just need a brief refresher course. We vary the type and amount of training time for each equine depending on their individual needs. Our policy is to work without force at each animal’s pace.

In Rehabilitation

New arrivals go through at least thirty days quarantine and have their health care fully updated. In some cases their physical and mental rehabilitation takes much longer.  You are encouraged and welcome to inquire about our animals’ health histories.


Some qualities make an equine less appealing to adopters (unless just the right adopter comes along, that is)! If we accept an animal that isn’t likely to be adopted, we provide for them for life. Many of our sanctuary animals can be adopted as companions, please contact us if you are interested.
