    HELP! I recently came across the perfect horse that I really want to buy. I am getting a really good deal on her, but the buyers need her gone very soon. I just got a job, but I need a way to help convince my parents to get her. I would pay half of her board after the second month, but I need...

    Attention: Have you ever adopted a horse from a horse rescue facility in Ontario? If so, you are being invited to participate in an online survey. As a current graduate student at the University of Guelph in the Department of Animal Biosciences, I am interested in investigating specific horse...

    Has anyone out there adopted through the BLM Internet Adoption? How long did it take to get your app approved? Thanks in advance! :D
  4. New to Horses
    I am in the market for an OTTB. I have worked with them before and am familiar with the breed. This would be my first thoroughbred that I have ever owned but I did full lease one for over a year and a half and was responsible for the board, farrier and vet fees and care of the horse so I am...

    We're nearing 5 months together and he has made SO much progress. When he first arrived he was unsure of nearly everything and every one. He was off the track and you could tell he wasn't used to the whole being a "pet" part. The rescue had him on pasture rest where he was the low man in the...

    So I'm looking to adopt a Percheron mare and I have a few questions! Can a Percheron live comfortably on 1 acre of land? What kind of temporary structure do you think is appropriate to shield her from weather until I get my barn built? And would a standard adult sized rope halter fit her...

    Hi guys, I am brand new to this forum and am looking for some help. My husband recently passed and his favorite baby (big baby) is our 13 yr old paint horse who has gone blind. She is maintaining well but she is big and a lot to handle without my husband (who was the horse man). I am looking to...

    There's a big OTTB rehoming/rescue place in my area and I've really been wanting to look into adopting one. I know, people think they're crazy, but I think it'd be a really constructive 4H project. I'd guess that I'd use clinton anderson methods like I have with my other horses. Do any of you...
  9. Horse Training
    Since this is the training room, I was wondering if anyone had worked with an adopted mustang. I am thinking about adopting one or two for trail riding, cowboy trail competitions, and eventually endurance riding. Any thoughts or advice?

    There are so many great sound well behaved horses in need of homes at the rescues across the US. These are just a few of the ones available at the rescue I volunteer training at. I think it is just horrible how these horses have been abused and neglected BUT seeing how resilient they are and how...

    Looking for help answering some Mustang adoptions questions. Firstly I am a Canadian living in lovely Alberta and am looking to move a fair amount of Mustangs up over the border. ( a couple at a time for sure) I was wondering if there were any other Canucks on the forum that have done just...

    We recently rescued a 22 year old TB from his home of the past 15 years. He was a a little heavy but badly sunburned and sand blasted. He was a very beloved pet and raised many grandkids. We have kept him on the food they gave us and added a little sweet 10 and now safe and sound senior...
  13. Horse Training
    I've had my heart set on adopting a Draft to ride under saddle. However, most of them are only halter broke PMU mares. I consider myself an intermediate rider. I've owned an off-the-track TB in the past, and I've competed in a few shows. But, I've never "broke" a horse. I will have all the...
  14. Welcome! Introduce yourself here!
    Hi Everyone, I love your forum and would like to chime in now and then as I can. My name is Christine and I work for ReRun, an ex-racehorse adoption program with chapters in NJ, NY, and KY. We take in horses from the racetracks who are no longer wanted as racers, and bring them to our foster...
