Contact: Christine at 631-537-7335 or at for information.

Adopt a Horse runs from April 6th thru July 14th this year. Many horses are rescued every year from deplorable conditions of abuse, neglect, and abandonment and although are no longer rideable due to age or injuries but are still wonderful, loving creatures to befriend and care for. Adoption rehabilitates these horses that would otherwise continue to live a life devoid of love, kindness from humans, and safety. If interested in adoption, contact Christine for more information! Contact information listed above. Serious inquiries only.
