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
