Horse Lovers United, Inc., a 501 ©(3) nonprofit organization, was founded in August 1992, by a small group of dedicated horse lovers.

Our goal is to find new, lifetime homes for displaced horses. Since our incorporation, we have directly placed more than 110 horses in new homes. We have assisted in the placements of 400+ more through networking with other groups of similar interests. Adopters have gained much pleasure with their horses in a variety of new careers including trail riding, pleasure driving, riding in parades, sleigh rides, dressage and many more. We accept donations of all breeds of horses into our program with particular interest in the "retired" or "noncompetitive" Standardbred racehorse.

The Adoption Process
All donated horses start with a transition period from working horse to pleasure horse. During this time, the horse is boarded at a private farm, evaluated by experienced horsemen, given necessary veterinary care, groomed, and started under saddle to determine if riding will be a possibility. Then, the process of "matchmaking" begins - to place the donated horse in a compatible home. Applicants and their facilities are carefully screened. A match is made and the horse is placed in its new home. Each new adopter signs an adoption agreement. Follow-up visits are made periodically throughout the horse's lifetime to ensure quality care and to assist the adopter with any problems. We continue to support our new adopters with personal assistance, advice and reference and educational materials. If an adopter cannot keep the horse for its lifetime, the horse comes back into the program until another match can be made. Many people have been able to know the pleasure and personal rewards of horse keeping for the first time through this adoption process.

Long Term Goals
Our long-term goal is to establish a retirement farm. When horses are donated to Horse Lovers United, Inc., they will be received at the farm and prepared for new homes. Any horse not being adopted will be kept at the farm to live out its life in dignity. We hope to save the lives of many horses that would otherwise be sent to a slaughterhouse. We benefit society by enabling more people to know the joys of horse keeping. In addition, by keeping more horses alive, all equine-related businesses and services (grain farmers, tack shops, veterinarians, farriers, and more) will benefit.
