Providing Bright New Futures for Unwanted Registered Quarter Horses
501(c) 3 Non Profit Ohio Public Charity
RE-RIDE QUARTER HORSE Adoption program is a 501(c)3 non profit public charity offering a safe haven for Quarter Horses that have become unwanted, abused, and /or neglected. Horses also enter the program that are unable to be kept by their owners due to financial hardship, veterinary expenses/issues, or because the animal's skill set does not meet the needs of their owner.
Our goal is to place these horses in long term, carefully screened loving homes where they can once again have a purpose and therefore a bright future.
Our target group for adopters are 4-H homes, Pony Clubs, and other youth based educational programs.
Our program abides by the guidelines set forth by the American Association of Equine Practitioners for Equine Rescue and Retirement Facilities , which have been adopted by the American Quarter Horse Association.
How we got started...
For several years I have been involved in the rehabilitation, retraining and rehoming of unwanted horses. During the course of my employment at Woodland Run Equine I have taken in many Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses and Standardbreds that needed time to heal from surgeries, were injured on the track or simply needed a new discipline. I have been blessed to work with some of the most talented trainers, veterinarians, chiropractors and farriers in the states of Ohio, Pennsylvania and Kentucky. I have had the opportunity to witness first hand the necessary treatments , surgeries and aftercare involved in taking an equine athlete back to a level of performance as well as grasping a firm understanding of when that is simply not possible. Many of the horses that have been helped by our program have gone on to become useful, enjoyable mounts for their new owners. Our farm also serves as a rehabilitation and layup facility for the most severely injured horses coming into the New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program. Horses that have experienced some sort of trauma, injury or abuse are often some of the sweetest horses and tend to give back with all of their hearts to their new owners and these are the horses that RE-RIDE Quarter Horse Adoption Program wishes to share with you.
Thank you for your time and consideration!
