Horses & Ponies

All of the horses in this program come with a varying amount of training. Some are fully trained, some are only ground broke, but many fall somewhere in the middle. We utilize the experience of our staff and/or veterinarian to help determine each horse’s riding ability and level of training.  Some of the horses may have limitations due to past injuries, illness and/or past history.  Horses must have at least a 10′ X 10′ stall (12′ X 12′ for drafts) and at least 8 hours of turnout per day (weather permitting).  All horses adopted from Happy Trails must have a companion animal. We consider an appropriate companion animal for a horse to be another horse, pony, donkey, mule or goat.

The horses in recovery are those that have been removed from a neglect situation and are not yet available for adoption.  Sponsorship opportunities are available for the horses in recovery to help pay for their stay at Happy Trails while they convalesce. Horses in recovery will be available for adoption once rehabilitated.
