  • REGISTRATION PAPERS: All registration papers are only transferred after updates show equine and owner are a good match.  Time frame is determined by each individual situation.
  • FEES: All rehoming fees, trailering, etc. must be paid in full prior to any equine leaving our ranch.  (We accept Cash, PayPal, Venmo, Western Union, FacebookPay & Credit Card.  We do not accept Personal Checks.  Please note: There is a 4.25% fee for PayPal & Credit Card)  Please be sure of your ability to care for any animal as we require a veterinarian reference and a farm check prior to rehoming.  This means any and all security deposits are non-refundable if the rehoming falls through due to the fault of the buyer failing to meet our requirements.  The security deposit is used for the feed, veterinary care, farrier care, board, etc. during the time the equine is being held.  Any equine that is pending rehoming has a 7 day grace period to be trailered to new home.  After the 7 day grace period, there is a $25 per day charge for board.  We have the boarding fee as each equine that has a home we can accomodate to be trailered to their new home within that time frame.  If outside trailering is hired and/or is unable to trailer until after the 7 days we can arrange for the equine to stay on our ranch but the equine will require feed, care, etc. like any equine being boarded at a facility.  The equine that has found a home is also taking up a space here on our ranch where another equine that needs to come into our program is unable to until that equine is trailered to their new home. 
  • OFFERED WITH EVERY REHOMING:  We can supply each riding horse with a full set of tack that is properly fitted to the horse so your off to a good start (As supplies last only so ask about our current availability).  We also offer to help with anything, anytime.  Whether feed questions, wound help, ground work, riding, etc. via video, pictures or we will come to you as well.  We try to take the guess work out of finding your new equine to make sure both equine and owner are happy.

Would you like Your equine to Enter our Program?

 All horses that enter our program must have a current coggins prior to trailering.  We offer to pick up your horse for free and do not charge previous owners any fees.  Our program is designed to give previous owners a safer option rather than private sale or auction.  We will schedule your trailering with what best meets your schedule and ours.  Once your horse arrives, we will refresh/train the horse in any way that is needed.   We try to figure out what each horse enjoys to do to further the potential of proper fit with a new owner.  All horses that come to our ranch remain on our ranch or with our fosters indefinitely until they are ready to go to their new home.  During their stay on our ranch, every horse gets farrier care, dentistry and veterinary care as needed.
