Are you sure you want to rescue? You can never resell that horse should something happen in your life. So say the dream comes true and you put all the training into the horse and it becomes a $10k horse, then you face divorce, death, something, you can't sell that horse on, and have to return it for free.
If that's ok with you, that's ok, just checking.
This is NOT the case with all rescues... To the OP Do your research and read your contract! Also most rescues are flexible on the rules/regulations and will alter certain parts of the contract providing you can be a responsible owner (most of the time not a problem). If you disagree with the contract offer a resolution. There are too many horses who need homes for a good/legal rescue to turn down legitimate homes cause we "insist the horse comes back for free" or any other scam excuse... JME though
.. The rescue I work for is nothing compared to people's experiences on this site. Quite sad if you ask me... a good home is a good home despite training, breeding, etc... as long as the horse isn't abused or neglected... JMO Posted via Mobile Device
