Foster Program for Special Needs or Hard to Adopt Horses
Please note that the Foster Program mentioned in the horse adoption contract is only available to special needs horses. Because we’re totally transparent about our horses, you’ll know if your horse qualifies long before contract time.
Rarely, a horse we’ve rescued needs to be placed with a specific type of owner. We recognize there’s a good possibility the relationship won’t work, so we agree to allow the adopter to “try out” the horse for 30 days. The adopter may choose to adopt the horse at the end of the trial period, or return the horse without refund. The foster fee covers the cost of boarding and care for the horse during the 30-day period.
We do not offer the foster program for most of our horses. The majority are ready to be placed with most any rider.
Owning a horse is not a decision you should enter lightly. We recommend you weigh all the pros and cons before you take the plunge into horse ownership. If you’re looking for your first horse, you might think about leasing one of our rescues for a few months. That way, you can get a feel for what it takes to own a horse, without the up-front cost and commitment.
