We ask for 2 personal references, a veterinarian reference and a farrier reference. Make sure you have that contact information available and let them know we will be contacting them. We call ALL references and will not be able to proceed with your application if we cannot reach them. If you currently do not own horses, please send us your previous veterinarian and farrier.
How to get the adoption process started:
The first step in the process is filling out our application. We are a volunteer run organization and we must manage our time wisely. Your commitment to filling out an application lets us know you are serious about adopting.
Here are some tips before filling out the application.
After we receive your application:
- You will receive a confirmation email that we have your application.
- You will be contacted by an adoption team member. Please note if you do not respond they will not move forward with your application. This call gives them a little more information on what you are looking for, and they can go over available horses if you do not know which horse might work.
- We try to make sure we contact you within 5 days of receiving your application.
- The adoption team will then contact all your references. Once that is complete you move to the next step.
Once all of your references have been contacted, we will schedule an in-person interview. We will go over the following in this interview:
Once you have looked at the horses and we think we have found you the perfect match we will then schedule the training sessions.
*** Our goal is to make sure the horse you adopt is a great match for you and your home. We want to make sure our horses are loved and cared for but also want to make sure our adopters find the horse for their needs.
