For questions and inquiries on Horse Adoptions or Appointments; please contact Mona at:

If you are contacting us about adopting a horse include a brief description of the kind of horse you are looking for (size, gender, height, temperament, etc.) and also let us know your riding skill level (beginner, intermediate, advanced) and what type of riding you have experience with (hunters, dressage, polo, trail, foxhunting, etc). The more information you provide us with the easier it is for us to determine if we have a horse that will be suitable. Please do not overestimate riding skills or goals. Also, let us know if you need a tall horse or need a horse that will be strong and sturdy enough to carry more weight. And, finally, give us a brief description of the accommodations available for the horse.

We welcome visitors on an appointment basis. We are generally available weekday afternoons and Saturday afternoons. Directions to our farm will be emailed after an appointment is scheduled.

Sorry, volunteers cannot work directly with horses. However, volunteers are needed to help at fundraisers and other events.
