Companion & Older Horses

Due to age or medical conditions and old injuries most of these horses are available as companion horses Our regular adoption fee for these horses is $250. Some of these horses will stay with us for life. If you are looking for a younger companion horse please look at our other horses as well or give us a call to determine a good fit for your needs.
