The Horses on this page are available for adoption as riding horses.
These horses are either in saddle training or have completed saddle training.
The Training Level Progress Report or Evaluation for each horse is posted in the listing.
Possible adopters are encouraged to review the videos and the Progress Reports/Evaluations to help you decide if this horse is a match for you.
Please note - we do not haggle over the adoption fees. The fees we set are fair and modest.
All funds derived from adoption fees go to help save another horse.
Glacier is a 9 year old 14.2HH mustang gelding. He came back to FCER after having been adopted 3 years ago. Glacier was rideable when he was adopted, but now he has some "hiccups" that must be addressed. We're putting him back into saddle training and starting at the beginning using natural horsemanship techniques. Potential adopters are encouraged to come out and be part of Glacier's training process. We also have an online training program available to the adopter at no charge. Glacier is current on vaccinations, deworming and farrier work.
Adoption fee for Glacier is $400
This fee is subject to change as his skillset increases.
Dickens is a beautiful palomino gelding that was once wild. He is 4 years old and stands about 14 HH. Very smart and engaging, Dickens is still learning to be a good partner. He's friendly and wants to play, but his handler will have to set boundaries and make Dickens honor them. He halters and leads, and is current on vaccinations and deworming. The right home for Dickens would be with a person who will continue Dicken's education using Natural Horsemanship techniques. He is not saddle trained. We are working on his Ground Manners now.
UPDATE - Dickens is starting saddle training with Katie Johanson in Ignacio. We estimate he will be there for 60 days and should be back around July 20th.
Adoption Fee - To Be Determined
Pecos is a 12 year old gelding. Once a wild horse,he is currently in training with our Plan 4 Progress program. Pecos leads, loads, and picks up his feet.

Pecos is smart, engaging and willing to learn. He is NOT saddle trained.
UPDATE- Pecos is starting training with Katie Johanson in Ignacio.
We estimate he will be there for 60 days. If you are interested in seeing Pecos please call or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment.
Adoption Fee- TBD
Rex is a 13.1 hand 9 year old mustang gelding. He came to FCER when picked up as a stray by the New Mexico Livestock Board. At some point in his life he had some handling, as he came to us with a general understanding of haltering, leading and loading. Rex is currently in saddle training. He has gone on his first neighborhood ride and his first trail ride the week of March 8th, 2020. Rex did excellent on both rides! He is not inclined to spook and is also not inclined to run away. He is current on teeth floating, vaccinations, deworming and farrier work. Rex will do well with a person who has some experience riding green horses.
Bonner is a 12 year old gelding. When we got him he was a stallion, one of 6 removed from a hoarder. It's been a long road for Bonner, but he is now a well adjusted gelding. We've started him under saddle, and he is very willing and calm. The right home for Bonner will be someone who uses Natural Horsemanship techniques to continue Bonner's education as a saddle horse.
UPDATE - Bonner has a laceration on his shoulder that will keep him out of training. We estimate he will return to training at the end of June, 2020. Thanks for your patience!
Adoption fee for Bonner is $400
Rookie is a 5 year old gelding. He was running with a wild herd when captured, although he has obvious Thoroughbred conformation. He's very acceptable of people, and is a pleasure to work with. Rookie is people oriented and willing to engage in activites. He is now starting saddle training, an excellent opportunity for an adopter to watch his training so they can both "be on the same page". He leads, loads and stands for the farrier.
