The TRF tries to make the adoption process as easy and as inexpensive as possible, yet must take necessary precautions to make sure that the horse in question will be turned over to a suitable, caring home. To start the process for a TRF horse, fill out an application (PDF) and e-mailing it back to us. We require references and information on where any adoptive horse might reside. Once the form has been received, a TRF employee or volunteer may visit your farm and/or request pictures of the property (fencing, shelter, pasture, water source, etc.) to make sure the facilities are adequate. You must have secured stabling arrangements before an adoption can be finalized.

Upon approval of the adoption application, you are welcome to try any horse we have available for adoption. Visit our facilities and horses!

The tax-deductible adoption fee, which is non-refundable, can run from a low of $500 to a high of $2,000. Our main objective is finding the right home for our adoptees.

After the adoption has been completed, the TRF will require that your veterinarian report to us yearly concerning the horse's condition. We will also require that you notify us if you and/or the horse has moved. You cannot sell or transfer your horse without prior approval from the TRF. Our herd manager, Sara Davenport, or (859) 519-8355 will be glad to answer any other questions you may have or send you an application!
