We take adoptions very seriously with the goal of a finding successful forever homes for our horses. Our main goal is to match the right horse to the right person. We often have beautiful, healthy horses, and are in the process of putting as many as possible through training so they function well at their new homes.
Our fees vary depending on the age and level of training of each individual horse. We prefer that you own your own property or have a boarding situation that we can check on. We are also looking for stability and an income that would enable you to not just keep the horse healthy and well fed, but also pay for any emergency vet bill. We will check your references, including calling your vet and farrier.
Our adoption agreement is a legal contract, so it is important that you agree to the stipulations. The goal is to make both you and the adopted rescue happy and to ensure the horse goes to the best possible home.
We require a completed application before we make any appointments for you to ride or interact with a horse. The application is not in any way a commitment from either side; just an assurance that should you decide to adopt a rescue from us that it will be a good match.
We would be glad to send an application to anyone or answer specific questions about the process or our horses. Our co-founder, Beth Keenan oversees all adoptions. If you would like more information please email her by clicking here, or call 970-921-5646 for more information.
Easter's training began in mid-May with Michele Skerl of Freedom Equine in Crawford Colorado.We'll update her progress and when Easter will be available for adoption.
Easter is a 16-year-old beautiful dun mare with a willing personality. She was relinquished along with her daughter Lily (who has since been adopted) by a woman who could no longer care for them. Although Easter has had no real training, she is amazingly accepting. After 4 years in a pasture, she was saddled and ridden in the arena, with no sign of hesitation. After training with Michele Skerl (Freedom Equine), Easter is going to make an excellent trail companion.
Her front left foot turns in slightly but scans show no structural problems and she is on a corrective trimming schedule. She moves with no sign of any problems.
Aly (aka Ayasha) was rescued from an indiscriminate breeding situation in early 2021. She was pregnant and gave birth to twins in March; both were still born. Aly recovered well, both physically and emotionally soon after giving birth.
We think she’s about four years old. Aly’s a very friendly, sweet, smart girl and stands at 13.3 hands. She is a dream to catch and halters and leads easily without any issues. Aly’s scheduled for training by Michele Skerl, Freedom Equine later this year. After training, she will be available for adoption to her forever home. We’ll provide updates on her progress.
JJ came to us at only a few months old with his pregnant mother. They came from a round-up in Nevada and were in a kill pen with another pregnant mare and her foal. JJ and his brother Jasc (see below) will both be going to Michele Skerl of Freedom Equine this summer for training, watch this site and our Facebook page for their progress and the announcement of when they will be up for adoption.
JJ is going to be a great trail companion for anyone who enjoys an energetic and fun ride.
Jasc and his brother, JJ will both go to Michele Skerl of Freedom Equine for training this summer and then go up for adoption.
Jasc is a Virginia Range foal born here on June 10, 2013. He's the friendlier of the two, easy to catch in a pen and leads as long as he's still in an arena. Jasc is a bay in the winter and a roan in the summer. Great personality and loads of energy.
Handsome is a 9-year old, untrained quarter horse cross gelding. He's available for adoption and of course is very handsome.
Justice was saved by Spirit Wind Horse Rescue when they purchased him at the Delta livestock auction, where he otherwise would have been bought for ultimate slaughter in Mexico. He was sold with registration papers which indicate that he is a registered appendix and was born on June 6, 2008.
Justice is a tall boy, easy to catch and is great with the farrier. He is one of the kindest horses you will ever meet. He was ridden in a round pen bareback when he arrived (shown in the furthest left photo) several years ago. Second photo is how gorgeous he looks today. He will be an easy project for someone who would like to finish off his training.
