Meet the Equine Outreach Herd

Companion Horses

 

Do you have a lonely horse at home who would like a companion horse? Do you have an empty pasture that could use one of these beauties? These horses are very special to us, and we would love to see them go to forever homes where they can live out the rest of their days at ease. They truly deserve it. They cannot be ridden due to their age and/or medical issues, and they should only be viewed friends or pets versus working horses.

The adoption fee is $500. This includes the $25 adoption application fee. We make every effort to have adopted horses be up-to-date on their vaccinations, worming, and farrier work.  

 

For details on how to adopt any of these horses, please see our Adoption Process.

Black Pearl

Mare
Arabian Cross
14 years old
15 hh

 

Black Pearl has been patiently waiting for someone to take her home; she has been at Equine Outreach since she was a foal.  Black Pearl is halter broke and extremely sweet. She has Wobbler Syndrome, so she isn’t a candidate for riding, but she'd make another horse a wonderful friend and companion.

Harmony

Mare
Saddlebred
18 years old
16 hh

 

Harmony came in without much information, but she is friendly and gentle. She has a neurological condition that she has been treated for and now stands with her rear legs out. She is easy going (although often likes to be the alpha) and would make a wonderful companion for your horse or yourself.

Sassy

Mare
Thoroughbred
20 years old
15.3 hh

 

Sassy is a sweet and lovable horse who is always curious and eager to make new friends. Due to her abusive background, she needs a lot of gentle kindness and cannot be confined to small spaces. She needs someone with patience and no agenda.

BonBon

Mare 
Thoroughbred
28 years old
15.3 hh

 

BonBon is as sweet as can be and has fantastic ground manners. She has a lip tattoo, indicating that she was a racehorse and was seized from a large racehorse scam in Oregon. Thankfully, her racing days are over now. Due to her age and trauma in her background from previous owners, BonBon is no longer rideable. She makes great company and enjoys quiet time and rolling around and napping in the pasture.

Blue

Gelding
26 years old
15.3 hh

 

Mr. Blue would be so happy to have his own person. He loves attention, is very calm, and has impeccable ground manners. He used to move out on the trail, but was not “hot” or “ill-behaved.” Blue stands quietly and nicely to be haltered and saddled. However, due to his severe swayback, he isn't a candidate for the riding. But would make a wonderful companion horse.

Maggie

Mare
Quarter Horse (Registered, "Pay Commander")
17 years old
15 hh

 

Maggie is a registered Quarter Horse who has been diagnosed with Wobbler Syndrome. She has a super sweet personality, and is very people friendly. Maggie adores attention, so she would appreciate a home where someone would care for her and make her feel extra special.

Chiquita

Mare
Mustang

15 years old
15 hh

 

Chiquita is a 13 yr old sorrel reservation mustang that is just beautiful. She has been started with solid ground work, although is quite shy and sensitive and can spook easily due to past trauma. She is not available for riding, but once you win her trust, she will follow you around and look for attention and reassurance.

Casino

Mare
Thoroughbred (Registered, "Asti Casino")
24 years old
​15.1 hh

 

Casino is a registered Thoroughbred and she has a racing record with the Jockey Club, but she can no longer be ridden. She loves people and is always friendly and curious. She cannot be a solo horse; she needs the companionship of others who are introduced to her slowly.

Paige

Mare
Thoroughbred
24 years old
16 hh

 

Paige is friendly on her own terms, depending on her mood. A solid partner could bring her a long way. She needs someone who can provide consistency to work with her and bring her to her full potential. She is tightly bonded with Violet and the two are inseparable.

Wasco

Gelding
Mustang

14 years old
15 hh

 

Wasco is a very gentle soul. He was adopted out in 2015 and recently returned to us. We are working with him on a re-start with his training and comfort level around people and other horses. So far, he is showing us how smart and friendly he is. We have not determined yet if he is rideable or has any medical issues until our veterinarian team can evaluate him further.

Prospect Horses

 

Prospect horses are physically sound, have had some groundwork training, and may have been trained to accept a saddle, bridle, and/or rider. But they need a tune-up and additional time with a trainer to become confident and reliable riding horses. Equine Outreach makes no guarantee of a horse's level of training or soundness.

The adoption fee is $500. This fee includes the $25 adoption application fee. We strongly recommend that you have the horse independently vet checked and evaluated by your trainer, especially if you have limited training experience. We make every effort to have adopted horses be up-to-date on their vaccinations, worming and farrier work.

Paco

Gelding
Quarter Horse

18 years old

16 hh
 

Paco is a new rescue. He came from a private owner who had him scheduled to be euthanized just a few days later. He has some trail riding experience, and is currently being evaluated by our veterinarian team to ensure he is still healthy to ride. Paco is super sweet, easy to halter, and has a lot of nice energy.

Mocha

Gelding
Arabian/Quarter Horse

24 years old
15 hh

 

Mocha joined the herd in February 2022. He is gentle, easy to halter and walk, and has trail riding experience. Mocha was the only horse for the past two years with his previous owner, so introducing him to others takes some time and patience. He is currently being treated for arthritis in his back leg and also needs a re-start to get back in shape.

Nala

Mare
Mini Mule

10 years old

 

Nala is a sweet mini mule who enjoys running with the big girls next door and napping under her favorite tree. She didn't have a lot of handling at her former home, but she is getting quite a bit of it now. She has improved so much since she has been at the ranch. She has become a volunteer favorite as she is so cute.

3P8A3155.jpg
Violet

Mare
Thoroughbred
28 years old
16.1 hh

 

Violet is very friendly and people oriented and is motherly about watching over the other horses at the ranch. She has a traumatic background, as many of our horses do, so it takes time to build trust. Due to some arthritis and other health issues from old age, she needs to remain free to roam with her herdmates and Paige, who we suspect is her daughter.

Toby

Gelding

Mule

26 years old

 

Toby is as sweet as can be, an old soul. He is considered the greeter at the ranch as he likes to roam around and see everyone. He frequently stands by the front gate to welcome volunteers as they arrive. Toby is "Grandpa" to little Nala as they are a bonded pair. He is a little creaky in his hind end as he has some old injuries in his hips and loves a good brushing.

CJ

Mare
Thoroughbred
32 years old
16 hh

 

CJ (Calamity Jane) is a lovely girl that halters, leads, grooms, and picks up her feet just fine. Her right front hoof is sensitive due to a blown-out knee, so it might take some coaxing. However, she has a very sweet disposition and would make a wonderful companion horse for someone with experience.
