Meet our horses who are up for adoption...

Adoption Application

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.

Ready for Adoption in Spring of 2018


Born 1996
Beau, relinquished by his owner, has many trail miles on him, carrying many different people. Beau was a bit thin when he arrived in early 2016 but has gained weight and rehabbed nicely. He is barefoot with excellent hooves, and had his dental work done. Beau has had some sore back issues in the past, being treated by a local veterinary chiropractor. Beau’s rehab is almost complete and he will be ready for adoption to his forever home soon. Beau is very good under saddle and is ridden bitless.
