The Adoption Process
Horse North Rescue's goal is to place horses in permanent loving homes. Our adoption process is aimed at finding the best possible homes for our horses.
In order to adopt a HNR horse, an interested adopter must first fill out an adoption application
and submit a nonrefundable $25 dollar adoption application fee.
Should you be interested in a horse that is not currently available for adoption, we encourage you to submit an application so we can get the preliminary site visit and paperwork started. All horses will be given at least two weeks advertised as "available" before the selection process begins.
This application will expire after two years from date of signature or adoption of a HNR horse or whichever comes first.
The dedicated volunteers at HNR will conduct a site visit, check on the references you provide and discuss further with you whether that particular horse will be the most suitable for your family.
Please call or email us with any questions or a meet n' greet with our horses.
Jesse is a beautiful, 11 year old Arab/Quarter horse gelding. He has had training with ground work and been started with a bit and trained under saddle. Jesse is solid under a walk and trot but he needs some steering work with faster speeds. Jesse is very willing, sweet boy who could go any direction with more training. His left front windswept foot is being managed with corrective farrier work which needs to be continued, however, the Vet has given him the clean bill of health for his new riding career to take off with a rider under 125 lbs. Jesse's adoption fee is $250.00.
Sea Jade is a sweet, 27 year old Throroughbred mare that is seeking a family to enjoy her company as a companion horse or pasture pet. She would do best with a barn and a cozy blanket on the chilly days so she keeps her weight up. Sea Jade is a Special Needs horse and is available for adoption at $125.
Matte, age 28, is currently our sanctuary horse as she is a special companion to our rehabbing horses. Her sweet personality and quiet demeanor make her a wonderful horse to train our volunteers with little to no horse experience. If she sounds like the kind of horse you would like to add to your barn as a pasture pet, please put in an application and we can consider it for the "right" family. Update: Matte has been adopted!! 7/19/2017
This pretty 17yo Arab mare is healthy and happy and should be ready to be adopted within a matter of weeks. She is currently undergoing some refresher courses in riding. Don't forget to put in your application and application fee now so you can get prequalified to adopt.
Lucy is a 11 year old APHA beauty that just came back to our rescue. She has just been brought up to date on vaccinations and farrier and will now be assessed for riding. Please keep your eye on this website for updates as to when Lucy will be available and for more information. Applications plus the $25 non-refundable fee in advance are recommended as we don't think this girl will be in limbo too long.
