Meet our horses who are up for adoption...
We do charge a $50 processing fee with your adoption application. Rest assured, that this fee will be applied to the adoption fee if you are approved to adopt one of Wings Programs horses.
All horses that are accepted to The Wings Programs goes through a very thorough evaluation process.
The process begins by…
- Evaluating health issues including soundness, illness and/or injuries needing rehabilitation.
- Evaluating the horses level of experience and prior training.
- Evaluating for mental and emotional issues.
- Identifying what training is needed to transition them to their forever home setting them up for success.
Once all needs are identified, a comprehensive rehabilitation plan is developed.
