Well, first of all, it’s just good for every horse lover’s soul! By choosing adoption, you are freeing up space for another sweet soul to be saved. Then another. And another.
When you choose to adopt from RRR, you are making a huge decision. We understand that! That is one reason we offer an exchange policy. A horse is a large animal & a big responsibility. We know that sometimes it just doesn’t work out. That is why we are dedicated to matching you & your family with the right horse. Unlike buying a horse in a private or auction sell, where there is a “no return policy”, RRR will work to meet the needs of its horses & adoptive families.
While it’s noble to want to pull from an auction or kill pen, you just don’t know what you’re getting! At RRR, we do pull from kill pens on occasion in addition to owner surrenders, but we do the work for you: the horses we take in are fully vetted & all medical needs addressed before being eligible for adoption; a farrier is called & hoof care is performed; teeth are floated & dental health is addressed; they are quarantined before being released to adopters; & we also have trainers to evaluate & train our horses for as long as is required. That saves our adopters a lot of time & ensures medical needs are addressed & met! It also helps prevent possible spread of disease.
Transparency: RRR strives to have transparency in the way our rescue is run. Adopters are encouraged to visit our rescue & ask as many questions as needed. Our goal is to match horses with the right adoptive families, so we believe honesty is the best policy when it comes to a horse’s history, behavior, level of experience, & training.
Potential adopters are encouraged to spend time with their prospective horse before bringing them home! RRR always welcomes meet & greets, grooming sessions, trips to the trainer, & even riding your potential horse friend. While a horse may be on quarantine after being taken in to RRR, interested adopters are welcome to visit the horses & establish bonds before being allowed to take them home.
RRR also has a horse for every riding level & individual need, ranging from beginner to advanced. Horses are evaluated to determine skill level of the rider, as well as any riding specialties they may have. This can range from pleasure, to trail, to barrel racing, roping, cattle, & even pasture ornaments if you’re so inclined! Interested adopters are always encouraged to contact RRR with horse inquiries & specific riding needs—chances are, if we don’t have what you’re looking for now, we will in the future!
