Adoptable Horses

Rescued horses, after being gently cared for, brought back to health, evaluated for soundness, manners and overall adoptability are then listed here as being ready for adoption. Care is taken to describe each horse as to his or her best-suited home life. Some horses are easily ridden while others may be best suited as barn buddies. Others can be adopted but need additional training to become true pleasure or even great show horses. Take your time as you browse through the photos and descriptions of all these wonderful animals.

Recently rescued equines are listed at the end of the adoptable horses’ list. Their adoptability is yet to be determined and will be updated as additional information is available. To obtain additional information, please submit an adoption application. (See applications\adoption applications.) Thank you for considering an HWH equine.

Adoption fees shown may increase as the equine receives additional training.

If you’re an advanced beginner or intermediate rider, she may be perfect for you. Lily’s adoption fee is $4,000 and may increase with additional training. Come see her now.

At 15.2 hands and under the right rider, he could probably be a super jumper! He is very agreeable and will make someone a wonderful partner. Elvis’ adoption fee is $2,000.

Choco is a beautiful Standardbred gelding. Choco was on a property that was sold and the horses needed to be removed. He was placed with us to find him a loving home. We can share a video of him working in long lines and he appeared in our performance Spirit of the Horse in December at The Oaks of Lake City Equestrian Center. Choco has a lovely trot and canter on the lunge line and will be evaluated under saddle very soon. Choco is not tattooed so it is unlikely that there is any history of racing. He is such a good guy, he even represented HWH at the Christmas parade in Bell, Fl. With training, he will succeed in any direction his person chooses.
