We have a growing list of screened applicants interested in providing homes for all ages and types of horses.  Many are looking for an older, gentle horse for a child.  Others are looking for a companion for another animal.  We even have people who just want to provide a safe, quite retirement home. Upon finding a suitable home, we provide a standard of care profile to fit the particular horse for the new foster owners to go by. 

In order to adopt

  • Please complete our online adoption application and indicate which horse you are interested in.
  • $200 Adoption Fee for rideable horses and $150 Adoption Fee for companion horses suggested.
  •  No money is to be exchanged with owners of Horse Match horses, as we DO NOT SELL horses on this site.  Please notify Hope for Horses if anyone asks for payment during the adoption process.
  • We require a signed statement ensuring that the horse can never be transferred, leased, given or sold to anyone other than Hope for Horses. 
  • We will make scheduled and unscheduled visits and require access to veterinary and farrier records to help assure us that the horse is receiving the best care.

Diablo

  • AGE: 18
  • BREED:  Unspecified
  • SEX:  Gelding
  • HEIGHT:  14.1 Hands
  • INFO:  Diablo is a gentle giant who loves attention.  He gives kisses after getting a treat.  He tries to drink from the water hose when getting a bath.  Diablo is in great health, but has a 10% rotation of his coffin bone, so must see the farrier every 6 weeks, with shoes placed backwards on the front.  He is not sound for riding.  He is very docile and will be the "low" man in the herd.  If you want this sweetheart to be part of your family, please contact Hope for Horses.

SCOUT

  • AGE:  25-30
  • BREED:  Quarter Horse
  • SEX:  Gelding
  • INFO:  Scout is an elderly love bug.  He is very sweet and loves attention.  He was abandoned 5 years ago and adopted by Champ's owner.  Sadly, the owner died in August.  Champ (listed below) and Scout are bonded and it would be a blessing to adopt them into a forever home TOGETHER!  Scout has no special health issues - he's just old.  He needs senior feed and moist hay, twice a day, and a decent shelter to escape the weather.  If you have room in your pasture and room in your heart for this sweet pair, please contact Hope for Horses

wishum

  • AGE:  15
  • BREED:  Thoroughbred
  • SEX:  Gelding
  • HEIGHT:  16.2 Hands
  • INFO:  Wishum is a big sweetheart.  He loves attention and food!  He is perfectly sound after a suspensory ligament injury 7 years ago, but would be best ridden on the flat and easy trails.  NO JUMPING!  He has a TB temperament, so needs an advanced rider someone familiar with the breed.  He is somewhat of a hard keeper, so grain is a must for this fella.  He will also need a run-in in the pasture and a barn for shelter during times of bad weather.  Please, inquiries only from experienced horse people!

Peppy

  • AGE:  17
  • BREED:  Registered APHA
  • SEX:  Mare
  • HEIGHT:  14.3 Hands
  • INFO:  Peppy is a very sweet and loving mare.  She has been a camp horse for one season, but has a little more "go" than acceptable for small kids..  She is great with older kids and adults.  She is being treated for some navicular changes and is currently in bar shoes, but will, hopefully, be okay for light riding when proper shoes are able to be applied.  The veterinarian and farrier are happy to discuss her care.

PABLO

  • AGE:  26
  • BREED:  Standard Donkey
  • SEX:  Gelding
  • INFO:  Pablo is a gently, older donkey, who LOVES attention, treats, and having his ears scratched.  He gets along well with other equines and is quite comical cavorting with his friends in the field!  Pablo does very well with the farrier and vet, is gentle enough for a beginner rider (light riding, due to age), and has given rides to many children.  He has been well-cared for and loved his entire life.  His teeth have worn down with age, even with regular care from the vet, so he cannot eat hay, but does very well with long grass and senior feed/beet pulp.  If you want to give this funny, sweet donkey a forever home, please submit an adoption application or contact Hope for Horses for further information.

LADY

  • AGE:  25
  • BREED:  Thoroughbred
  • SEX:  Mare
  • HEIGHT:  15 + Hands
  • INFO:  Lady is a great name for this gal!  She is a sweet, well-trained, (trail and dressage), older girl, so light riding by an advanced beginner or intermediate rider is best.  She has no health or soundness issues.  If you would like to give this gentle girl a forever home, please submit an adoption application or contact us for further information.

PRINCESS RUTH

  • AGE:  Mid 20's
  • BREED:  Arabian/Morgan Cross
  • SEX:  Mare
  • SUITABILITY:  Lead line or light riding, due to age
  • STATUS:  Adoptable by contacting Hope for Horses
  • MORE INFO:  Ruth was surrendered to Hope when her previous owners could no longer care for her.    Though she seems to be perpetually grumpy, she is a sweet mare and loves to be groomed!  She's a grulla, which is her unusual coat color, and has an extremely heavy coat, so needs body clipping in the summer.  She is perfectly safe, but is only suitable for light riding, due to her age.  Until we have found a new forever home for her, you may also "Sponsor" Ruth by visiting our Horses to Sponsor tab.
