The Adoption Process

So you've seen a Lucky Horse that seems to be a good fit for your family.  What is your next step?  Contact our Adoption Coordinator HERE.  We will be in touch to schedule a visit with the equine you have your eye on.  Not sure which of our rescues is right for you? Our Adoption Coordinator can help you narrow down the choices from who we currently have available to find just the right horse to fit your needs.


At your first visit, you can meet the Lucky Horse(s) you are interested in and, if possible, take them for a test ride. If it's a good fit, you will then be asked for an Adoption Application.  The submission of this application, along with a non-refundable $25 application fee, starts the review process for an adoptive home.  Even if our current available equines don't provide just the right fit for your family, we encourage all potential adopters to submit the adoption application and become pre-apprved as an adoptive home.  This ensures that when the right horse does come along, you will have the first opportunity to welcome them into your home.  You can bring the application with you to your initial visit or email it to the Adoption Coordinator. 


Once we receive your application, we will contact your references and schedule a site visit.  When this is complete and your application is approved, you will be ready to move forward with the actual adoption!  You can see a sample adoption agreement at the bottom of this page for details on what commitments and requirements an adoption entails. After you sign the adoption agreement and submit the adoption fee, it becomes official- that very Lucky Horse is now yours!

Foster Homes Needed!

If you aren't ready for a lifetime commitment of a Lucky Horse adoption, but have the facility or resources to bring a horse into your life short-term, please consider fostering one of our many equines.  Foster homes provide all care for their Lucky Horse, including food, shelter, etc.  Depending on the horse, they may be ridden or may simply provide a companion for horses already on the property. Either way, foster families get the benefits of and love of an equine friend, while the horses get the benefit of a caring, if temporary, home. 


Foster families must go through the same approval process as adoptive families.  The application and agreements are available below.  If you have any questions about fostering a Lucky Horse, please contact our Adoption Coordinator HERE

Raven and her foal Poe

Looking for some truly unique lawn ornaments?? Look no further! These adorable black and white minis are the cutest and sweetest you've ever met.

Ravenwood's Snow Queen, registered American Miniature Horse, and foal (Poe - currently unregistered) available for adoption! Rescued from auction, "Raven" is a beautiful registered section B mini standing 37 1/4" tall. She is big bodied and broke to ride!

Her 3 1/2 month old foal, affectionately called Poe is very cute, loves to cuddle, and a fast learner! Both horses are a pleasure to work around and have been successfully handled by beginner horse handlers. Friendly with dogs, children and other horses. Last week Poe had his first trim and was a very big boy about it!

They are fantastic!!!

Thank you Liz K for fostering Raven and Poe!

Adoption fee: $600 each



 spearmint 4unnamed



Spearmint is an adorable 4 yr old pinto gelding. Currently he is medium pony size but still has some growing. He has a puppy dog personality and a pair of blue eyes to go with it.

Spearmint has had several months of professional training and is green but uncomplicated under saddle. He is happy to go english or western and is currently being ridden by a teenager.

He would make a great 4-H or pony club project. This cute guy is ready for a partner and has a bright future ahead of him.

                      Available for adoption $2,500. 







        Nick is a gorgeous bay 16.2h 18yo Irish Draught gelding. This horse is handsome and kind. He is currently being used part time in a lesson program and everyone adores him. Nick jumps 2’6 courses with simple changes and enjoys trail riding and ring work.

He does very much appreciate one consistent rider, but has been happy with one person primarily riding him and then also riding part time in the school. We do not believe he would be happy purely as a lesson horse longterm. While Nick is very steady and sweet, he is also a soul that needs to be able to trust his rider.

He will tolerate beginners because he is just that wonderful, but we would really like him to have an Intermediate riders as his primary rider. Nick has great feet, is built to last and has no soundness issues.

LHER also has someone interested in part leasing this horse for someone living close to Bolton and interesting at boarding locally. Call 978-502-2237 to inquire about this wonderful gelding. He is truly a very special guy.

Nick's adoption fee is $2,500
