Spotlight Horses

I thought I'd spotlight some horses that are sitting at rescues. I don't know anything about the rescues except what is posted on their websites. I also, don't know if the rescue still has the horse that I have posted, only that it is still posted. So I'll just post a photo of the horse and the link in which I found it. That way if anyone is looking for a horse maybe I can help find a rescue horse a home and clear the way for more to be rescued. My friend sends me a link a day because she loves looking. I'll try and post all the ones that have the potential to be riding horses or are riding horses.


Isn't he beautiful?

Drew is easy to lead and is quiet for grooming. Sometimes he gets excited in the stall if other horses are walking by, but calms quickly. We do not have any information about his past experiences or training, but we do know that he is sound. He has had a rider on him, but will need more time under saddle and would require an advanced rider. He is currently turned out with other geldings, as he likes mares a little too much. Adoption Fees range from $50.00 to $500.00!


Color Me Mocha

Look at that coloring!

Tri color mare approx 14.3 hands 14 yr old it's not known if she is broke to ride gorgeous color gentle to handle. Video done in hand. I inquired back to find out if she rides and was told she is a little nervous to mount but takes a rider so she would need experienced person and miles/training Adoption fee $250

Kris Kringle

Just cause he's a Haflinger!

KRIS KRINGLE ADOPTION DONATION $550.00 Kris Kringle is a 10 year old Haflinger gelding that has been abused by his previous owners. A young child was taught to beat him until he did what she wanted. But with what he has been through he is still a love bug just scared at times if he doesn't know you. He has been broke to ride and drive, but hasn't been for about 4 years. We are working with him to get him going again. He thinks he is going to be hit every time you lift your hand. He will stand for hours now and let us brush him and comb out his mane. He stands for the farrier, is up to date on shots and worming and will load in a stock trailer with no problems. He is scared of a two horse trailer because they beat him to get him into one. He is one pretty boy. We were told he is registered but have not seen the papers. He needs that special someone that will love him and treat him with a gentle hand.

I'm drooling!

Adopted from HHRF in 2005, Aramus is a reg. Friesian Sports Horse. His sire is a Friesian and his Dam is a Spanish Mustang. Aramus is 17 hands and 10 yrs old. This description was written by his current owner. Requires experienced rider, has over 90 days of training, been on several trail rides. Needs constant reminders
That scary things won't eat him!. Constant exposure to tarps, bikes, etc or he spooks if he has not seen one in a few weeks even though he has been exposed to hoards of de-sensitizing things, if he is not exposed
And ridden continuous he forgets and reverts to flight mode when riding him.
He is a complete ham on the ground, loves to be loved, plays with your pony tail zipper on your coat etc. follows you everywhere always looking for treats, first one at the gate. Herd leader which is why I feel he is on higher alert when being ridden than the other horses, he feels the need to always be on the look out to protect
And warn the herd?
Updated on 5-way, West Nile, Potomac Horse Fever / Rabies. Wormed and trimmed. Will need floated in about a month. Beautiful animal. Should definitely be placed with a horse savvy adoptee, not as skittish or spooky in an arena or pasture those are his safety zones. Aramus is being adopted from his current home but the adoption application and approval of adoption is done by Hog Heaven Rescue Farm.



Gotta love those Drafts!

Caramel is a 17-year-old 15'2 hh Belgian/Quarter horse cross mare rescued from a from a closing Premarin farm. In her previous home Caramel was never given the opportunity to become a great horse, and suffered from years of neglect. Having never met a nice, gentle person before coming to H.O.R.S.E. Of CT she was fearful of many things. Years later Caramel has come a long way she can confidently carry a person while being hand-walked. With a patient, confident, and gentle person Caramel can become a quiet trail horse.

I LOVE the last two! Great idea to put some rescues up. It's a shame that a lot of people don't go to rescues to get horses- my mom got a $10,000 Arabian from a rescue, he was fantastic and cost no more than $500!

If I had $1000 and a trailer Aramus would be in my barn right now. I can't believe a Friesian Cross like him hasn't been snatched up at that price....

Gulch’s Groovin

New Vocations
Marysville, OH

Isn't he nice looking?
  • Name: Gulch's Groovin
  • Age: 4 yr old gelding
  • Height: 16.2h
  • Color: Bay
  • Adoption Fee: waived

This handsome son of Gulch sold for 120k as a two year old. He has great conformation and over all is a classy guy. We just started working him under saddle and he has proven to be rather lazy. He is a big stout guy who really isn’t in a hurry. Gulch isn’t hot or spooky but is green. He only raced 5 times and only as a 3 year old. Thus his legs are clean with no apparent injuries. Gulch was retired early due to a cyst in his throat. We have had him scoped. The vet report was 50/50 in that his condition could stay the same or could get worse. So far it has not affected him for flat work, and didn’t affect him during race training, however, was obviously an issue when racing. We have waived his fee because of this issue. He goes out fine with other horses and hasn’t shown any vices.

Who doesn't need an ol kid broke pony?

My name is Sheik. I'm a 13.3 hand bay pony. I'm good with other horses and very easy to handle. I stand tied, lead and trim with no problems. I'm a great horse for beginner as I'm trained very well. I'm 21 years young and will make a great pony for children or for their retired grand parents. I'm great on trail rides and have no bad habits. I'm a pocket pet and love to be groomed. WHAT A GREAT LITTLE HORSES!!! Earth Services 269-965-2117 or 269-924-6595

Athena De United

Mmmmm Paso Fino!

GO TO Midwest Horse Welfare Foundation, Inc. TO FIND OUT ABOUT ADOPTING ATHENA OR OTHER HORSES AVAILABLE. There is also video on the website. Athena is a registered 5 year old Paso Fino mare out of Ocala, Florida. She is sound and healthy and stands at 14 hands tall. Athena has world class bloodlines and has just come out of 6 months of training in the hope that she might make her mark on the show circuit. While she has shown huge strides in her training, it does not look as though her gait has the perfect timing needed to win in the big time shows. That perfect gait may come out in her as she matures, but it will take time and work. As we stated, Athena has exceptional breeding and has had a lot of training. She does all the things you would expect, leads, loads, ties, you name it. She has a lot of time under saddle and a very solid foundation, but will need continued work on her confidence, maturity and of course, her gait. Athena would best be described as an ultra-hot, very well bred Paso mare with names on her papers that Paso people would certainly recognize and appreciate. She will need someone with the time and patience to keep working with her and not put time constraints on her progress. She has all the potential in the world and was bred to be a champion. Athena is current on all her shots, wormings and trimmings. She is a beautiful mare with as much flash as you can pack into a 14 hand horse. She is also very sweet and respectful of her handler. For more information, photos and updates please visit our discussion forum.

Aramus is right up the road from us. Only an hour drive I believe. Too bad Im broke. My next horse will be from a rescue. There are tons of advantages to getting a rescued horse.

1. Rescuers will not lead you astray on a horse. They want the horse to be placed in a great home where he wont ever be sold. We have turned down some great adopters looking to adopt a horse from our rescue. Not because they were bad people, but because they werent right for the horse.

2. Lots of time to look it over. If you are looking at a private sale horse, you have one, sometimes two rides before you have to atleast get some money down. If you offer to sponser said horse for a month (about $50 usually covers it) it buys you enough time to see if you are a match!

3. Most rescues keep their horses health care 'over the top' up to date. If the horse has a medical condition, they aren't going to try to downplay it. They will tell you upfront, unlike some unhonest horse people. A new horse can't come out of quarentine until they are UTD on shots and have had a thorough vetting.

Will you...uh... go steal him for me? Lol
    09-09-2010, 06:53 PM
LOL I would if I didn't just keep him for myself! He's adorable! Very unique looking! is another really great place to get rescues. They don't do much with theirs, just pull them from the slaughter auction and try to find them homes. Their fees are low and they really only take the best of the auction. Here is a fellow on their youtube page I wouldn't mind having.
