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.
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 a 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.
