Adopt a Horse

When you "adopt," or sponsor, a horse, you commit to supporting that horse by covering the basic costs of feed and hay, vaccines and worming, farrier (blacksmith), and tack (bridle, saddle, other equipment). Your donation is tax-deductible and is also a wonderful gift giving opportunity for a child or spouse. In return, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you are helping to care for a very special creature of God.

You will receive:

  • A photograph of your adopted horse
  • Certificate of sponsorship
  • RVR gear
  • Invitations to Horse Adoption Program events such as trail rides
  • Updates on RVR's horsemanship program

Full Adoption

$50/month, $150/quarterly, or $600/year

Select your horse (if you have no preference the RVR staff will select a horse for you). You will be covering food and basic veterinary, as well as farrier and grooming, and expenses at the Ranch for one year.

Partial Adoption

$25/month, $75/quarterly, or $300/year

You will share your horse with another person and together your donations will be used toward that horse's food, veterinary and grooming expenses for a year.

If you are unable to adopt a horse but would still like to give, we also accept one time gifts of any amount, or donation of equipment, tack, and equine items. Please call the barn office at 410-374-8295 to speak about material donations.
