Horse    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 

    This boy IS ten years old and he HAS raced 98 times, but I can't call him a war horse - he's more like a Teddy Bear Horse. His groom loves him, his trainer loves him, his trainer's wife loves him - Hell, I love him! He has humans who care about him and take great care of him and it shows. He trusts and loves people and his life at the track. Track Magnet is the favorite of the barn and has done everything ever asked of him. He is ready to retire not because of soundness issues, but because his trainer/owners feel it's time for him to find the new life he deserves after racing. Don't be fooled! This boy has plenty of miles left in him ... (Read More)and he's soundness tested and approved! Click here to see his pedigree. Click here to see his impressive race record.

Horse    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 

    Sweet Prince, he thought he found his forever home, but it was not to be. This sweet boy left Bowie Training Center in December to become a part of a wonderful family. He is kind, easy going and safe to handle, but the other horses there are not kind to him. He is still needing time to recover and heal from his days as a racehorse. Jade raced 42 times and made over $160,000 during his career. He last raced on October 2, 2014. He was retired due to wear and tear on his ankles which made him extremely sore. This makes it necessary to give him time before becoming a trail and pleasure horse. Click Here to see his pedigree. Click Here ... (Read More)to see his race record.Jade will make a wonderful family, recreational trail horse with his lovely temperament and good looks. He will be a solid family man. He just needs someone to offer him the life he deserves. His present family has to keep him separate from the other horses because they push him around and beat him up. This horse is just too sweet. Jade is 15.2 hands and 6 years old. If you are interested in Jade, please contact me at kclark@goodhorse.org. He is located in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. (Less)

Horse    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 

    I would like to introduce the stunning, Sister Mo. She is a 4 year old Thoroughbred filly who stands 16.1 hands with a solid build. Mo raced successfully until chipping both knees last fall.

This beautiful girl has an even disposition and no vices. Mo is located in Boyce, Virginia and available to an approved home. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-11-00217Noble Commander (male)

Horse    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Gelded, Vaccinations Current 

    Noble is a beautiful and unraced thoroughbred gelding. He is 7 years old and stands 16.2 hands with a small white star on his forehead and one white anklet. Noble is extremely well bred. His father was Harlan's Holiday who won the following Stakes Races: The Dubai World Cup, Hollywood Gold Cup Handicap, Florida Derby, Breeder's Futurity Stakes and many others. Go to goodhorse.org to see his Pedigree. The following is from his owner%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD| Noble has no vices. One year ago he was shown locally over fences and on the flat. He pinned in both classes. Noble needs an experienced rider right ... (Read More)now because he is out of shape and stiff on his circles. Once he gets going again in a regular program, he is very nice to ride. Noble is an easy keeper and loves to eat! He is kind when turned out with others also! Noble had an injury to his back right ankle when he was somewhere between a yearling and a two year old. I saw a picture of him from the farm he was bred and there was no indication of the injury yet on his back ankle. So sometime in between one and two when he started into training he must have been injured. I had x-rays taken of his ankle and the vet said he should be okay. I will also be taking some new x-rays for a potential adopter to have. The injury was to Noble's growth plate. Noble would do well being in a place where he mostly has to be ridden on level ground. He can jump and do dressage and just about anything else. He just needs to be on good ground.' Noble is residing in Orlean, Virginia, please contact me for more info. at goodhorse.org (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Horse in Maryland
    Horses can make good pets in Maryland if they match your IifestyIe. Horses are beautiful, romantic animals that many people love. Sadly, however, horses are being neglected, abused, and abandoned at an alarming rate. The reasons a horse would need to be rescued are quite varied. Some horse owners in the Western U.S. have lost their homes and land to foreclosure, leaving nowhere for their horses to go. These horses are sometimes abandoned in the plains and deserts, where they often die of slow exposure. Droughts, rising food and fuel prices, and other economic pressures mean that some owners can no longer afford to feed and care for their horses. Other horses are purchased by inexperienced people for sentimental reasons or as gifts for children, but their owners are unprepared for the ongoing expense and involvement of caring for the horses.

    Like horses, donkeys and mules (sterile hybrids of a horse and a donkey) have their own charm and usefulness. However, these animals have also been affected by hay shortages and some have sadly become victims of abuse or neglect.
