Thank you for taking the time to consider adoption!
We cater to an adopter base that wants to be part of a solution to the neglect horses are experiencing here. Our adopters are not JUST People looking to "get a horse," but they are people who are looking to something higher, something more. . .and for those people willing to go a little further, work a little harder. . .
We try to make the process worth your while with horses that arrive UTD on all vetting, rehabbed, with honest assessments, with 24/7/365 support for the life of that adoption and give those adopters the assurance that if they cannot ever care for that horse, they have a heck of a nice organization there to step in and make sure everything is okay for that horse.
