Application for Placement of Equine
"...and people may talk as much as they like about
their religion, but if it does not teach them to be good and kind to man and beast it is all a sham..."

Pals” have returned to health and are ready for new loving homes. Some
of the horses are trained English and some western. Most
of the time, HPS has horses that would be suitable for a child's first horse. No horse can
teach a child to ride and it is important to have an adult that can work with the child or he/she take riding lessons.
The horses have
spent their time lounging in the fields during recovery and will need reconditioning for muscle building. We
seldom have a horse that will safely be able to carry a rider weighing over 165 pounds. Each generation
people are getting larger…… but horses are not.

The "Pasture Pals" have returned to health but have issues that preclude them from ever being ridden again. The horses
are wonderful for a companion to another equine or for folks who just want hhorses to love and to be loved back.
Equines in Recovery
"Equines in Recovery" are horses that may be able to be ridden once they have gained their full weight. Some may be "Pasture
Pals" and we usually know what they will be able to do when fully recovered. An application can be placed for one
of these horses before they are fully recovered with permission of HPS. They will remain at the sanctuary until better.
Normally a horse will need two to three months of field rest after they have gained all their weight back before they can
be put back under saddle.
"Permanent Residents" are horses that have health issues that will need long term treatment,have reached the age of 30 years old or
are not suitalbe for placement. They love attention and enjoy brushing by their Angel Sponsors. Please come meet
these wonderful horses. Our oldest horse Navajo, 44 years old, is such a pleasure and is in perfect health.
