My Right Horse strives to be a trusted source to find your Right Horse and we understand you may have some questions. If you do not find your answer below we encourage you to reach out to us at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is My Right Horse?
My Right Horse is a listing site for horses in transition that are available for adoption nationwide. It is supported by The Right Horse Initiative, a program of the ASPCA, and its partners. We are connecting good people with good horses.
By seeking a horse through the sales market, prospective owners unknowingly pass over thousands of adoptable horses that are ready candidates and just the horse they are looking for. Consider adopting instead because:
- Good adoption organizations care about the right fit for you and the horse. It’s in their best interest to be fully transparent about a horse’s abilities, limitations, and personality because they want adoptions to be successful.
- Good adoption organizations will always take a horse back if it doesn’t work out. This a lifelong safety net for the horse and gives adopters more confidence in their decision.
- Adoption fees are typically significantly lower than sale prices in the traditional horse market for horses of comparable ability or value.
- Adopting creates sustainability in the horse market. There are thousands of good and valuable horses that simply need the right visibility to find a new home and career.
Most owners don’t care where their next horse comes from. They care about finding a horse that fits their needs. As horse owners, we understand the significance of finding the right match. If you’re looking for your Right Horse, consider adoption through My Right Horse. Whatever your wants and needs, your right horse is out there and we will help you find it.
