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.
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.
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.
Adoption Fee for Rookie is $400
