Horses for Adoption
It is our goal to find "forever" homes for our horses. It is very important that they are matched with the right owner and will be suitable for the job you expect them to do. We prefer that you visit the prospective adoptee three times before you take them home. However, we understand that if you are coming from a long distance it may not be practical. Thus, we will work to ensure the process is as smooth as possible and that you and the horse are a good match.
Requirements to adopt a horse:
- References - Yes, we do check
- Good Fencing - We don't consider a barbed wire fence appropriate for horses.
- Training - If you are adopting a young horse, we expect you to have the training skills needed to take the horse along to a valued member of your family. If using a trainer, we must also approve that trainer.
Once you have been approved to adopt and take your horse home, you are required to send us updates for six months. At the end of six months you will receive a brand inspection. If, within that time, you find that we did not find a good match for you, please return the horse to the Rescue.
To start the process, please contact us.
Spring Creek Rescued Horses for Adoption
Please note that this list may not be complete and we may have horses that are currently undergoing rehabilitation that will be ready to adopt soon. Feel free to contact us at any time to enquire about other horses or to be placed on our waiting list.

RJ is a 20-year-old registered QH mare. She has showmanship experience in western pleasure and dressage and would make a great horse for any intermediate rider.
