All horses are Up To Date on vaccines, dentist, farrier, worming, and have a current Coggins Test. All horses have been thoroughly evaluated by a licensed veterinarian and a competent trainer. All findings are made available to the adopter prior to adopting the horse. We make sure that horse and rider are matched, we will always go with the best fitting placement for both horse and rider, and not by order of application received.
Q: Do you have limitations as to where you adopt horses to?
A: Yes, generally within a 4 hour radius of our rescue here in Honesdale, P.A.
Q: Do the adoptable horses have injuries or health problems?
A: Some do, and some don't. We offer full disclosure of Veterinary and Training records on each horse. We have some horses that have special needs, and others who have absolutely nothing wrong with them and can walk into the show ring tomorrow.
Q: Is there an adoption fee? How much is it?
A: Yes, there are adoption fee's on the horses. Our highest adoption fee is $1,500 and that is for a horse that is show ready or has show experience. The prices go down from there depending on the physical condition of the horse and it's level of training.
Q: If my adopted horse does not work out, can I sell it?
A: None of our horses can be resold, bred, or raced. We make a commitment to keep them safe for the rest of their lives and if you can no longer provide for them, they are to be returned to us. This is the reason why the adoption fees are so much lower than a sale price of the same quality animal.
