Horsematch is for conscientious and loving horseowners who find themselves forced, due to circumstances beyond their control, to part with their horses. This program is not intended to be an avenue for people to re-home geriatric, unsound or untrained horses as a matter of convenience.  We do not sell horses through our Horse Match program. The program is for placement of horses in need of good, caring homes. Therefore, if you are offering your horse for sale via other advertisements, you MAY NOT use Horse Match.  We do ask that a donation be made to Hope for Horses by the person adopting the horse they find on Horse Match. The donation is 100 percent tax deductible and will go to help the rescue horses here on the farm.

If you need to rehome your horse, please fill out the online Horse Match Application (by clicking HERE) with as much description as you can.  You will need to attach 2 pictures of your horse - preferably, a close-up shot of the face and a full-body shot from the side.  Get the best pictures that you can - first impressions are really important!  We will post your horse with our adoptable horses on our website.  Interested adopters will fill out an application.  Our staff will check references and research the person as thoroughly as we are able, and then we connect you with the qualified applicants.

IMPORTANT! Because this service is very time consuming for our staff and volunteers, and our organization pays internet, phone, and website fees in order to provide this service, we request a donation ($10 - $20 is customary) with your application (by clicking HERE).  If you need assistance with the application process or have any questions, please email our Horse Match Coordinator, Kim, at
