Blue

6 year old, QH, 15.1 hands, Gelding.

Blue wants to crawl in your pocket! Although limited in his riding abilities, he is full of personality and loves to be loved. He would be the perfect companion horse who is willing to love you forever. He stands, ties, loads, and is fat off air. He is a looker who enjoys being groomed and handled on the ground. Blue is also learning liberty! Come be his partner in crime.

BudLight

20+ years old, Palomino Paint Belgian cross, 18 hands, Gelding.

 

BudLight is a gentle giant, and our go to lesson horse. Kids as young as 4 have ridden him! He is a great confidence builder and is trustworthy with any rider. Light riding with a large pasture space to semi-retire to would be the best home for our gentle giant.

Winter aka "Whinny"

10-12 year old, Grade QH, 15.2 hands, Mare.

 

Winter is sweet, silly, and mixed with a little saucy. She is truly a beauty and loves girl talk. She is not looking to jump or participate in high competitive disciplines, but would be an ideal partner for some easy fun on the ground or in the saddle, or a lovely trail ride! Best suited for  intermediate or advanced teens or adults.

MHR Adoption Process:

  • Adoption application to be completed and sent to info@milehighrescue.org. Submitted applications do not guarantee adoption. If the application is determined to be a good fit for the rescue of interest, then an assessment will be scheduled. 

  • Assessment evaluation to get to know the rescue. This includes handling, grooming, and riding if applicable (trails or in the arena). We spend this time assessing skill levels and making sure the rescue fits the needs of their future home. Assessments are $75, however they are waived with completed adoptions. This fee, if paid to MHR, goes back to support the rescues. 

    • 30-day on-site lease is an option prior to adoption. Leases start at $400/month. Lessons can also be scheduled at a rate of $65/hour. 

  • Once the evaluation is deemed a good fit, a home check and reference check will be performed. Rescue "holds" can be placed ($150 deposit for up to two weeks). Deposits are applied to the adoption price if adopted. If the adopter decides against adoption, the deposit will be assumed by MHR in support of the rescues.

  • When the home check and references are approved, adoption contracts will be signed and adoption fee paid.
