Adopting a rescue horse is among one of the most rewarding and wonderful experiences a person can have. We at SVERN strive to help you find the perfect fit for your home, and will work with you to make sure that you and the horse both find their forever match. Our adoption policy includes a meet and greet, a farm inspection, and a reference check in order to ensure you are getting your perfect horse. Fill out our adoption application or email us to get started!
Ginger is in her early 30's and is around 14.2hh. Ginger was surrendered to SVERN when her owners were moving and unable to bring her along. Ginger is a senior horse with kissing spine, but otherwise is a very easy keeper and a very gentle horse.
Mac is a big boy! A stout Percheron/QH cross around 16hh. He is a beautiful flea bitten grey with the sweetest face. Mac was surrendered to SVERN when his owners could no longer adequately care for him. Mac is in his 20's, and has not presented any issues health wise (other than having poor feet from irregular trimmings), he also appears to be sound and has started on the ground lunging in and out of saddle.
Cherokee is an Arabian/QH cross who is in her mid-late teens. Cherokee was green broke at 2, but then was not trained further. She has a good base of knowledge for an experienced owner, or someone working with a trainer, to add to. She has been reminded of her ground manners, and begun working toward being ridden here at SVERN.
Poppy is a 3 year old Paso Fino mare who was part of a large animal control seizure. She was a part of a farm that primarily bred, and was not handled until she came to SVERN. Poppy is smart, but given the hotness of the breed, can be reactive and needs someone with experience. She will make an excellent project horse for spring 2021.
Rosie is a bay mare in her late teens . She is a Paso Fino mare that spent her previous life being a broodmare, and otherwise being handled very little. She was also a body score of 2 when she arrived. She is still scared of people, but is coming along better every day. She needs someone that will love her everyday, and be patient and understanding with her. She may only be suitable as a companion given her training history, and age, but she has the ability to be a really sweet and kind horse. We see more of her personality every day.
Petunia is an older Paso Fino mare (20's). around 14hh. She came in with the beginning stages of laminitis, as well as white line disease. We were able to manage her feet and she is back to normal now! She was also a body score of 3 when she arrived to SVERN and had untreated cushings which added to the overall foot soreness. Petunia will need to remain on cushings meds. Petunia bathes, ties, tacks up quietly, and stands for a rider. She is best suited for at least an advanced beginner.
Belle is an OTTB who is approx. 15 years old and is clearly full of personality! Her tattoo is hard to read so we are going off what we were told, which is that she was unraced. She is green under saddle, and is best suited for a intermediate rider. Though a very confident advanced beginner that is working with a trainer could also be a good fit. Belle is petite at around 15hh.
