Pricing Policy

Adoption fees are based on fair market value which includes age, soundness and training, and always negotiable.  The price is the same you would expect to pay if you found the same horse for sale anywhere else, although we usually have them priced lower. 

Our adoption contract states we will buy the horse back if it’s not working out or you are not able to keep the horse, at any time in his/her life.  Adoption prices are not listed online, as we evaluate the horse’s value (soundness and training) at the time you come out to meet them.

 

*Note: We understand that some horses may have significant value due to your investment of training. If you need to re-home your adopted horse at any time, SCR reserves the right to market the horse for fair market value and will give you the proceeds.  This way, your costs stop, you get the price you would have if you had sold him yourself, and SCR continues an adoption contract.

 Adoption Process

All horses at Second Chance Ranch are adopted on a contract and available to homes in  WA and OR state.  Our goal is to match our horses with forever homes. The adoption process is simple yet thorough.

 

  • A phone interview rather than written application
     

  • If there is a potential match, you will come out to meet the horses – bring trainers, spouse, parent or anyone involved in the decision
     

  • You must ride the horse at least once to determine if we should move forward to a trial period.
     

  • There is a mandatory trial period - typically 1 week to 1 month depending on the horse - to determine if the horse responds well in your environment before making a decision.

SPEAKER

PHOTO COMING SOON!

 

Speaker had a very successful racing career in CA, retiring with career earnings of $304,000. He has been off the track for just over a year (July, 2018). One of his long time race trainers loved this horse so much, he claimed him from another trainer just to retire him, and ship him to WA for safe rehoming. 

Horses who have a long, successful career and retire sound typically transition quickly. They are smart, well trained, and love to work. 

Speaker has a rare innocence about him. Incredibly sweet, loves people, and learns extremely quickly. We all LOVE this horse so much. 

I want the best for this sweet boy and can't wait to see how he thrives in a new career.

COACH

Coach was a successful racehorse with career earnings of $257,716. He retired from racing to have another successful career in eventing and 4H showing with the owner's 12 year old daughter. 

In 2018 Coach competed in the Jockey Club TIP championships in Kentucky, Pre-Beginner Novice West Champion, and placed 5th place overall. 

 

Coach has chips in one knee - they were there when he raced, there during the 18 months of jumping off the track. Xrays show they are attached and removing them may do more damage. He will stay sound with trail riding and dressage, but in order to preserve his soundness - jumping should not be part of his future. 

Disciplines: Trails, Dressage
