INTERESTED IN ADOPTING ONE OF OUR RESCUES?

Equine Outreach’s primary goal is to re-home and rehabilitate horses in need of placement into responsible, compassionate, forever homes. Our adoption procedures are designed to ensure that the horses go to homes where they will receive appropriate and loving care.

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. Companion horses are typically over 20, but some may still be rideable with proper care. Other companion horses may be younger but have medical conditions that prevents them from being ridden.

The adoption fee for a companion horse is $275. 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.

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.

Thoroughbred

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.

Violet is very friendly and people oriented, always craving attention, and is motherly about watching over the other horses at the ranch. She halters, leads, backs, moves to pressure, and has been under saddle. But due to some arthritis now, it is advised that she remains a companion horse.

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.

Casino is a registered Thoroughbred and she has a racing record with the Jockey Club, but will need to be restarted. She does not trust easily, so she's looking for a very special person. She cannot be a solo horse; she needs the companionship of at least one other horse. She has a patient and kind personality, and she would love to be a part of multi-horse home.

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.

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
2002
15.3 hh

 

Sassy is a sweet and lovable horse who needs someone to adopt her and give her the forever home she deserves. With a friendly and curious spirit despite her abusive background, she needs someone to care for her one-on-one that she can bond with. 

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 for a prospect horse is $525. 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.

Chiquita

Mare
Mustang

2008(est.)
15 hh

Chiquita is a 13 yr old sorrel reservation mustang that is just beautiful. She has been started with solid ground work, stands quietly for the farrier, and is easy to medicate and bathe when needed. She was a great trail horse. She is sensitive but once you win her trust, she will follow you around and look for attention and reassurance. 

Sanctuary Horses

Too many people equate the word "sanctuary" with sad, end-of-life places where equines go to die. At EOI, we see our our senior and medically compromised horses as a gift. Each one came to us with a history and a tenacity that helped them survive, and our volunteers do something every chance they have to make their life better -- a long scratch under an itchy winter blanket, carrots cut small or even shredded so they can enjoy that sweet taste if their teeth are not great, fresh pine bedding under their favorite tree, etc.

 

There is always hope for those little miracles as adopters come along with huge hearts, nice facilities, and infinite patience that are willing to bring these horses home and create their own sanctuary. If you would like to sponsor one of these horses, click here.

Nala

Mare
Mini Mule

2012 (estimated)

 

Nala is a sweet, stubborn as a mule, mini. 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.

Toby

Gelding

Mule

1996

 

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 tail massage.

Rosebud

Mare
QH
1990 (estimated)
15hh

 

Rosebud came to us in December 2019. She was shy and unsure as she had spent the last many years as an only horse and all of a sudden she had a lot of friends. She is slowly losing her shyness and allowing us to groom her and give her all the love she deserves.
