Rescue Me ID: 15-06-28-00562  (male)

Horse    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 

    This is from this lovely boys owner. I think her words do the best to convey how special he is: Chance is a 16 hand lost soul. He was rescued in the winter of 2014 from a local barn that stopped feeding their horses. All were in awful shape. Folks from the area came with trailers and took all but him. He was in the worst shape. Hes the low man in the herd. If there was any food around, the others got it first. Not only was he a skeleton, he had no hair. In a harsh winter!! He spent the first couple months at my friends barn where he received TLC from many people and children. As he gained weight and confidence she tried him as a lesson ... (Read More)horse. His favorite rider rode him English and jumped over low fences. To everyones delight and surprise, he loved it! But as a lesson horse, he couldnt keep up the pace. He has a touch of arthritis and the work load was too much. Thats when he came to me. My mare was a rescue who was perfect in the arena but a train wreck on the trail. She was thrilled to have someone to boss around!! I now understand how the term nag came to be.... Around the time all this began, the love of my life, announced it was over with us. He found someone else. I hoped hed change his mind but over time, I realized he wasnt coming back. I sent the mare back to the rescue but didnt want to let Chance go. Hes been a Godsend to me in my heartache. Just his name alone gave me hope. Hes so quiet and laid back. We live alone in a remote area. Just me 3 female dogs, and him. Here, hes the top dog! The stallion protecting his herd. Hes a benevolent leader! Never greedy or pushy at meal times. Patient while tacking and grooming. Wonderful with farriers and vets. Loads and unloads like a gentleman. Yet, once hes tacked up, its all giddy up go! Great on trails. Im an older gal. Ive got my own health issues too. All I wanted was a sweet ol thing to trail ride on with my friends. Hes all that and then some. Hes easy to keep under control when he gets racy. We both get giddy when we go on trails! The vet thinks hes in his late teens or early 20s. His teeth arent great but hes keeping weight on. I wanted to have them worked on but finances have been a issue.... I had an Appaloosa mare who lived to be 31 and was hale and hearty until the last month of her life. Some folks are very concerned about horses that are mature, but I think thats what they should consider. Yes, younger ones are nice, but sometimes you need a mount thats been around the block a few times. One that understands what you want. One that isnt surprised at every new issue. An old friend that youre comfortable and trusting with. Especially if you have been around the block a few times too. And we both enjoy going wheee woo hoo once in awhile! Ive been forced to give up finding a place big enough for all of us. My ex wants to move back here with his new friend. My mission is finding him the best possible home. He deserves the best because he is the best!! And the more you bless him with love and kindness the more he will bless you! Chance is located in Nanjemoy, Maryland. Please email Trainer@Goodhorse.org for more information. (Less)

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.

Rescue Me ID: 15-04-07-00139Jade Prince (male)

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)

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)

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.
