Standardbreds Available For Adoption

Application To Adopt

Adoption fees start at $600 and are driven by expenses incurred while retraining, transporting, housing, and providing medical care for the horse. These horses are learning their balance under a rider and usually need an intermediate rider (who can post). Most have been shod their whole lives and may need to remain shod for their continued comfort. Some can canter, but many are not able to canter with a rider. Please take these facts into consideration so that together we can make good matches for these horses. Helping Standardbreds in the New England region.
