We were contacted by the owner of an 18 year-old Warmblood named Azor. Azor has been a show jumper for most of his life, but he has had some lameness issues on and off, and his owner no longer thinks it is good for him to continue to jump competitively. He can still be ridden, but as he is sometimes off at the trot, she is looking for a potential home where he might be a companion horse. She said that he is good out on trail, but does need an intermediate rider. Azor's owner wants to make … [Read more...]
Horses Who Need Homes
Horses who need homes that are not at Hanaeleh: We support adoption in all ways. We periodically post adoptable horses that are not at Hanaeleh to help struggling owners find good homes for their horses. Each horse listed on this page is not at Hanaeleh. Please contact the owners for more information.
We just received word that Mattie has found a lovely new home, thanks to all of the people who helped to share her post! Thank you so much again for all of your help!

UPDATE: We have lost contact with the owner of this horse. Please note that we have passed along all information for any prospective owners to the owner, so hopefully she has either found a new home for her horse, or will contact those people in the future.

He is barefoot and sound, but he needs a trainer and/or experienced … [Read more...]
We were contacted by a woman who has a bay 19 year-old Thoroughbred mare that was abandoned on her property after the owner passed away. The horse's name is Stacey, and she is rideable, although it has been several months since she was ridden, so her topline and muscle tone are not as developed. She will need an intermediate rider. Stacey is in good weight and is an easy keeper. She is good with other horses and is currently out with the property owner's horses. Her teeth were done in … [Read more...]
Hanaeleh was contacted by a trainer who is trying to find a home for a 20 year-old Warmblood. One of her clients owned him, but he died suddenly and the family does not have the financial means to keep him. Amadeus is a 20 year-old Warmblood gelding. He is 17 hands. In his former career he was a jumper, but he has high ringbone and has been ridden as a trail horse for the past several years. He is appropriate for a beginner or intermediate rider, but he has not been ridden for a while, so he … [Read more...]
We are helping a therapeutic riding center find a home for a lovely 16 year-old Missouri Fox Trotter mare. Maggie Mae was donated to their center, but her gait is not appropriate for their program, and the people in charge of the center think she would be happier with an individual owner or family instead. Maggie Mae originally had been used for trail riding, and she would probably be happier as a trail horse rather than arena work. She has some mild arthritis due to her age, and has issues … [Read more...]
