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

Lark Snow 3


Lark's looks are really something special and he draws comments wherever he goes. He is well trained, suitable for an amateur, and has lovely comfortable smooth gaits.

Lark is currently jumping small cross rail courses and is limited to that height, will do flying changes, and has been very successful at horse shows. He gets along with other horses easily and is happy alone or with others.

Loves to trail ride and can go western too! Lark was donated as a fundraiser and is ready for his forever home. Lark has a very busy brain and while very easy to ride, needs someone who will be a leader for him on the ground. It is for this reason only we suggest a confident intermediate for this lovely guy.

Foster to adopt encouraged!

 Adoption fee $3500.
