Donating a Horse
The Re-Ride Quarter Horse Adoption Program offers Quarter Horses, and those horses in the Paint Horse Registry a second chance for a bright future. Adopting owners can rest assured that their horses will only be adopted to a new home, after being carefully screened to ensure the best chance of finding them that perfect forever owner. For owners considering our program, it can provide a safe place for a horse who is not suitable for sale due to injury, complications with lameness, or even age. Through Re-Ride, donation of a horse can possibly alleviate some of the financial burden that might occur over time. These sometimes, overwhelming expenses can affect the owners, trainers, and breeders who are just trying to continue to do what’s best for the horse. A benefit of donating a horse to Re-Ride is that the donation may be eligible for a tax deduction for your generous act. Horses that are donated with an estimated value upwards of $5000, require an appraisal from a certified Equine appraiser. A list of these accredited professionals can be provided, if you aren’t familiar with one. The Re-Ride Program retains ownership of the horse for a three year period, in order to monitor the adoptive owner, prior to permanently transferring the horse.
