We are at times searching for new horses and ponies to join our HoH team. We offer a Free Lease for your horse.

Free Lease

In a Free Lease, HoH is responsible for all routine care costs. Owners are financially responsible only for non-routine care and will receive regular updates and take the horse back if he or she needs to be retired or develops any behavioral or soundness issues that would result in having to leave the program.

Horse Requirements

Due to the nature of what we do, we have some very specific horse requirements. Our horses need to be physically and mentally fit to enjoy their life and do well at our farm.

In order to be considered for our program your horse should be:

  • Sound with no previous or current health issues that would hinder performance

  • Able to walk, trot, canter

  • Between the ages of 8 years to 18 years old

  • Up to date with all vaccinations, coggins, worming, farrier and veterinary care

  • Between 13hh and 16.2hh tall

  • Able to carry up to 200lbs

  • Easy to handle on the ground and when ridden

  • Able to get along with people and other horses

  • “Bombproof and unflappable”

Steps for acceptance of horses:

  1. Owner submits Horse Screening Form.
  2. Owner submits photo(s) of horse with and without tack to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
  3. Owner submits video(s) of horse under saddle to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  4. Upon review of submissions, we will arrange a time to visit the horse, so we can see the horse ridden and to ride the horse ourselves.
  5. If it appears that the horse is suitable we will arrange for a 90-day trial at our farm.
  6. If successful, the horse will join our HoH family.

Thank you for your time and consideration.  We look forward to working with you, should you so choose to Free Lease your horse to Horses of Hope.
