Welcome to our site. This is a place to help horses find new homes. This is NOT a "for sale" site. It is also not a place to go to gather up free horses just to re-sell them.
This is a place for all those horses that need a new home, but can't find a SUITABLE home. With most horse rescues at or beyond capacities we are finding too many horses needing new homes.

Also anyone looking for a free horse that is perfect, has no issues, tyes, loads,clips, is dead-broke, bombproof, and will babysit your kids all year while you do nothing but watch. If you want this horse, pry open your purse strings and cough up the $5000 that this kind of horse should sell for!
These horses are NOT perfect!
Some have health issues that will need to be addressed for a lifetime. Some have health issues that just need a short period of recovery. Some are lame now, but will get better. Some are lame now, and will never get better. Some are trained, some are not. Some might babysit your kids, and some might stomp them into the dirt if given the chance. Some have problems caused by people. Some have problems caused by other horses. Some have problems they were born with. Most of them are old. Most of them have some "baggage". Most of them will love you till the end of time if given the chance.
People looking to help find a horse in need a GOOD

Rescues are welcome, Private adopters are welcome.
It will be the job of the contact people listed for each horse to properly screen and place their horse. We can not and will not be resonsible if you give your horse to a disshonest person or group. Please read below for tips on placing your free horse.
Just in case you don't know, I feel I should warn everyone.
There is no such thing as a free horse!
Horses cost money. They need food, water, vets, hoof care, shelter, training, and fenceing. These things are NOT optional! Blankets, fancy saddle pads, expensive shampoos, fancy halters, silver bridles. These things are optional.
If you can't provide the BASIC needs of a horse, you do not need one!
Even if it is free!
Things to look for while at their farm are:
1. Overall Safety
Check fencing, condition of pastures (debris, junk) and barn and/or shed.
2. Overall Cleanliness
Are stalls kept clean?
Is there trash laying around?
Do water troughs/buckets look like they are cleaned regularly?
3. Condition of Horses
Do their horses appear to be in good health?
Easy to approach and friendly?
Are their hooves in good condition?
Does it appear that they are groomed periodically?
Are there any injuries that are not being cared for?
Items to discuss:
1. Don't be afraid to question them about their abilities and background (in a nice non-threatening way). Ex. Tell me about your background with horses.
2. Are they informed about what it takes to care for a horse and what horses require? (This may already be obvious). Ask specifically about what they feed, kind of hay, vaccination & farrier schedule.
3. If the horse is ridable, ask who will be riding the horse? Ask any questions relevant to your horses abilities for riding. Ex. What discipline/style riding do you do?
4. Ask about their facilities (barn, shed, pasture, fencing, water sources, etc).
5. Make sure that what they consider adequate space for the horse meets your standards of what your horse needs. Double check the acreage amount the horse will have.
6. Ask them what their plans are if your horse doesn't work out for them. Are they willing to call you? Are they willing to sign a contract that you will receive notification if they wish to sell or give away the horse?
Things to think about:
1. Are you comfortable with their answers?
2. Are you comfortable with their plan of action?
3. Would you be comfortable with them caring for your horse?
Ask for a veterinarian and farrier reference. Even a personal horse-related friend will make a nice reference.
A written agreement clarifies the terms under which you are giving the horse away, and can help protect you from liability in the event that your horse injures someone after he has left your care. As well as what someone can do with your horse once he leaves you farm.
