Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Midnight Rider aka 'Slater' is a smart, cute large pony gelding. He stands about 14 hh and is around 7 years old. Slater is an easy keeper, goes barefoot and gets along well with others. He ties, leads, loads, vets, farrier etc with ease. Slater has been ridden but has been basically sitting as a companion because of lack of time...with a tune-up, he could be a potential trail or low-level show pony! He could be matched with a petite woman or intermediate+level youth rider. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Slater please submit an application!www.rugbycreekanimalrescue.org We do not have set adoption fees but ask that you ...

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-01-00133Choctaw/Cheyenne (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Intact (Needs to be Fixed), Needs Vaccinations 

    I have two mares that I would love to go to a loving forever home. Neither are broke, meaning they have never been ridden or even had a saddle on them. I haven't worked with them at all. I worm them regularly but don't bother with vaccines since they aren't around other horses. I used to have halters on them but was advised by a vet that it was best to leave them off, so I removed the halters years ago. They are both in very good health. They are mare & foal (mother & daughter). Cheyenne is a APHA registered paint & I know is worth $1,000.00 as she is, I purchased her when she was just a few months old from a horse farm in Goochland. ... (Read More)Cheyenne is 21yrs old & has had two foals without any assistance at all. Choctaw is 6 yrs. old and is worth $500.00 & her sire is Tenn. Walker/Palomino ( He, Smokey, is here on the farm too). Smokey, my stallion, was purchased when he was two. He came from a bad home and blossomed. He has been under saddle but that was many years ago. Not sure if we can part with him though. Between my health & my husband pestering me constantly I need to find a good home for them preferably together. They a free to a GOOD home only. If you are interested in meeting them let me know. I will need to see where they will be living first before I let them go & be able to check in from time to time (for at least the first year) to see how they are doing. I have heard horror stories of what happens to some horses when given away & I don't want that to happen. I will even bring a bag of feed when I visit. I have always loved horses but never felt they had to be ridden to enjoy them for the beautiful animals that they are. I was sent an email a few days ago from someone that said my horses are 'Junk Horses' because they have never been broke. This about broke my weak heart. Once we took a vacation to Chincoteague to watch the wild pony swim. I was hooked & had to have a horse. People paid a lot of money for those wild ponies and still do. Mine aren't broke but they aren't wild. Choctaw I've been told would make a great barrel horse. They both, with work, would do good under saddle. Cheyenne hasn't been in a trailer since I got her. But leads good once she has a halter on. Choctaw has never been trailered but will follow her mom anywhere. Choctaw has a little attitude but the right person can take care of that. If you are planning to get free horses to take to slaughter don't bother contacting me. And please don't send me rude or hurtful emails. The decision to find them a new forever home has been a very difficult one. (Less)

Horse    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Intact (Needs to be Fixed), Vaccinations Current 

    We have a new rescue in a foster home. She is 7 yrs old. Arabian. 'Gypsy' Approximately 14.3. She 100% sound despite a leg injury with a scar. She is a little nervous around people but that has already improved. When she was handled in the past 2 years it was not with a kind hand. We were told that she is very green broke but to be honest, we don't think that is accurate. We will check into her training soon. She is willing just doesn't know what is expected of her. We think with a kind, patient hand she will flourish. If you are interested in adopting her please fill out an adoption application at our website ... (Read More)www.rugbycreekanimalrescue.org.

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    We know you are wow'd by his good looks but this guy has a heart and disposition to match! Tonkers is a very sweet and special TWH/SSH gelding. He is about 19 years old and stands about 15.2 hh. He is a beautiful blue roan paint with gorgeous blue eyes! He was a trail horse in the past and has been there and done that. He does have some mild changes in his hocks/hips and therefore would do best with leisure/light trail riding on flat/easy type terrain (too many years doing strenuous trails and terrain). Doesn't have any maintenance requirements at this time though would benefit from supplements - just looking for a slower/easy life. ... (Read More)Gets along well with others and has wonderful manners! If you are interested in fostering or adopting Tonkers please submit an application! *You must be over 18 to inquire *To ride Tonkers you must be under 150 bls (Less)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Beautiful Thoroughbred gelding. He has a little arthritis in his back ankle from an injury when he was a yearling He would benefit being in a place where he mostly has to be ridden on level ground. Noble can jump and do dressage and just about anything else. He just needs to be on good ground. He can not be turned out on frozen ground or slippery wet, muddy ground. Noble could benefit from getting some Previcox for his treatment. He could possibly be a candidate for surgery, which I can not afford. I was injured from a fall in October and I have not been able to continue my work with him. Noble is extremely well bred, his father ...

PIease Read Before Adopting a Horse in Virginia
    Horses can make good pets in Virginia 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.
