Adopt one of our sweet horses

Maryland Horse Rescue adopts our horses out to suitable and approved homes. We do not sell any horses. Please complete our Adoption Application to start the adoption process.

Adoption Guidelines

  • Maryland Horse Rescue horses cannot be resold, rehomed or bred and should the need arise and you are no longer able to care for these animals they must be returned to Maryland Horse Rescue (adoption fees will not be refunded, other restrictions apply).
  • If you are no longer able to keep your Maryland Horse Rescue horse for any reason and must return it, send us a written notice via email with a minimum of
  • 60 days notice (although the more the better), have a negative coggins test done (all horses must have a current negative coggins test), and have shots records available (all horses must have a current Rabies, 4/5 Way and West Nile vaccinations).
  • Each potential adopter is required to fill out an Adoption Application (print/mail or online) which must be approved before any horse will be adopted and is good for one year once its approved.
  • Adopters are required to sign and abide by our adoption contract.
  • Adopters must be at least 21 years of age with no history of animal abuse or neglect.
  • Adoption fees must be paid in full and in advance before any horse can be adopted. Adoption fees are not refundable.
  • Adoption area: Maryland residents or those that reside within 4 hours of our Westminster Farm


If you would like to see one of our horses, please submit our MDHR Adoption Application to start the process. We will then reach out to you to schedule a visit.


We rely heavily on our foster homes and could always use more. If you would like to foster a horse, please email us for more information. NOTE: Actual expenses related directly to the care of your foster horse are tax deducible. Foster homes are required to submit a year end itemized statement with original receipts. Some of our “companion only” horses are eligible for foster care.
