Rescued horses, after being gently cared for, brought back to health, and 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.
Adoption fees shown may increase as the equine receives additional training.
Lily has striking coloring. Her gorgeous sorrel and white coat and pretty face markings attract immediate attention from everyone. She certainly would stand out on a trail ride, which is her favorite thing to do. Lily did well on the obstacle course and under saddle and is pretty used to riding on various terrains. If you’re an advanced beginner or intermediate rider, she may be perfect for you. Adoption Fee: $4,000
Sonic is a charming guy with a dependable temperament. He came to us with a large herd of emaciated horses from a breeding farm. The owner had lost the ability to care for them. Upon arrival, Sonic presented with a large mass near his left shoulder that has been successfully surgically removed and he has been rehabilitated back to health. He is great on the trails and a joy to be around. Adoption Fee $3,500
TILLY (aka Betty White)
Tilly is a star! She was so good on the obstacle course during the Rescue Makeover Challenge that she won the Senior Advanced In-Hand class, as well as the Reserve Champion award for Best Turnout! This lovely 15-year-old mare is a great trail horse and she will make someone a wonderful partner. After her two months of training, Tilly is on the fast track to a new and loving home. Will she be the star that makes you shine bright? Adoption Fee: $3,500
This beauty is a previous seizure who has already had a jump start on their rehab process. Hosanna is an 18 yr old Mustang mare. She is somewhat fearful but can be very kind and seeks attention when she trusts the person who is working with her. Much of her history is unknown but we do know that she is very food motivated and dominant at feeding time. She was with other equines when she was rescued. We will know more as these two lovely ladies settle in and we have time to do a proper evaluation, but believe she will make a great partner to the right person! Adoption Fee $2,000
Although I’m only a year old, I am looking forward to growing up with a wonderful human. Since I’m a Paso Fino, I may be a gaited horse when I get older. Time will tell. Are you looking for a young horse to start? I might be your answer. Adoption Fee: $1,000
Pumpkin was rescued with 22 other horses from a thoroughbred breeding farm where his owner could no longer afford to feed him and the other horses. He is one of “The Thankful Ones” group. He is a kind and sweet man that loves to come up to anyone that comes into his stall. Adoption Fee: $2,000
Abena is a four-year-old Paso Fino mare. At about 14 hands, she would make an excellent horse for a small person or a teen once she is trained. Here’s a clean slate to work with. Adoption Fee: $1,000
You may have read about Pearl on the HWH Facebook page. She came to us with a large ovarian tumor that has since been removed. A registered Arabian beauty of rare breeding, she has the potential for many disciplines. An experienced rider can go a long way on this 12-year-old mare. Pearl has received groundwork and lunge training and will soon be started under saddle. She is an easy keeper and would be a great endurance horse. Adoption Fee $5,500
A cutie that has earned her name, Paso Fino Sweet Pea is both lovely and sweet. This yearling filly has a curious personality and will make someone a wonderful partner. Adoption Fee $1,000
At 12.3 hands, the small but mighty Nova would be a great driving or riding pony. Her unusual brown and white paint coloring makes her unique and flashy. Nova is currently doing groundwork in preparation for a chosen career. Adoption Fee $2,000
Indy is a four-year-old thoroughbred gelding who did not race but is recently started. He has a WONDERFUL character and is fun to work with and wants to interact with people. With more training and miles he will make a great life partner for someone in a variety of discipline options. Adoption Fee $4,000
Blondie is a senior mare who is as sweet as they come. She would make a wonderful pasture companion for a family to love. Because of her age, we do not recommend her as a riding partner. Adoption Fee: $1,000
Dinero is a wonderful guy. He has made great progress in his training recently. He is halter broke but will be competing in our Volunteer Rescue Challenge in April and will be doing all required obstacles in hand. He has a nervous temperament but is very sweet when he learns to trust his person. Adoption Fee $1,000
Jasper was brought in recently from animal control in the southern part of the state. We have been told that he is a good trail horse. He’s a bit on the thin side, but gaining every day. In order for us to begin the search for a loving family for him, we began the evaluation process. Jasper did exceptionally well, keeping the process easy, very short, and gentle. 10 minutes total to determine temperament and soundness and future potential. We are happy to report that when his recovery is a little more advanced, he will be able to be safely ridden. We can’t say yet to what extent that will be, but probably perfect for a family who rides lightly for pleasure but because he is a senior horse, not be suitable as a competition horse. Adoption Fee: $2,000
Elvis is an extremely handsome Saddlebred gelding who could have a bright future as a jumper. He is renowned here at the ranch for his ability to jump over his three-board fence to the next pasture. He never goes anywhere. But he’s so smart that when he sees you coming, he jumps back into the original pasture and looks at you as if to say, “Who, me? It wasn’t me you saw out there”. 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. Adoption Fee: $2,000
Quarter horse Grace is a pretty 16-year-old mare that is 14.2 hands tall. She is always sweet to the other horses and does well in a herd. Grace is doing groundwork training and will soon be started under saddle. Adoption Fee: $1,500
Lilly was rescued along with 12 others from a breeding farm where the owner had been unable to care for them. She was underweight and had not been handled much. She is just beginning her groundwork training but will need someone with a bit of experience or someone comfortable with Saddlebred activity and energy. Lilly has come a long way, and we’re so proud of her. The first day our trainer met her she was very unfocused, nervous, and distracted. Now she is so much more relaxed and her confidence is continuing to grow. Adoption Fee: $2,000
Patches is a beautiful palomino paint mare she is not broke to ride but with a bit of training and some work, she could make someone a great partner. She loaded well and is easy to get along with. Adoption Fee: $2,000
Pierre is a 16 yr old off the track thoroughbred. He is broke to ride but would need an experienced confident rider as a partner. He was surrendered due to the poor health of his owner. Adoption Fee: $1,000
Reissie’s Halo is a senior thoroughbred mare. She would be a very nice pasture mate. She would love to have a family to love her and care for her as she deserves. Adoption Fee: $1,000

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 performances of the Spirit of the Horse. 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. Adoption Fee: $4,000
