Rescue Horse Adoption Requirements
Adoptive homes must have a minimum of 2 acres of grass pasture per horse, horse safe fencing and shelter. Adoption to private homes is preferred as is a natural environment where the adopted horse is living with other horses. All Horse Protection horses are barefoot and it is great when they can stay barefoot. These horses are suitable for one rider only, not for multiple riders. It is necessary to establish a bond, trust and partnership with your adopted horse.
All unstarted, untrained, green horses require an experienced horse person with a background of training horses and who has a training plan for the horse’s education. Horse Protection reserves the right to approve or deny a potential adoptive home at Horse Protection’s sole discretion.
A completed adoption application must be received by Horse Protection Association of Florida before any specific horse can be considered for the applicant. The adoption application must include photos of:
- The facility where the horse will be kept
- Turnout, pasture
- Water sources
- Photo’s of currently owned horses and/or dogs
