About Adopting a Horse

Our adoption process is designed to find the best possible fit between a horse and an adopter. We screen applicants to be sure that the adopter not only has the desire to make a retired racehorse's future a better one, but also the financial and logistical resources to give that horse a good home. This screening starts with completing an application. The application lets us know exactly how you intend to care for and train your horse. Then we interview you to make sure that you understand the requirements of adopting a horse from FLTAP. We use the interview to help match you with the most appropriate horse for your abilities and goals. Once the application is approved and the adoption fee is paid, the horse is held for you as you arrange for shipping. We will help you find a shipper if you don’t have your own trailer.

 If you have any questions, feel free to go to our contact page to let us know, or call us at (585) 924-9510 or (585) 500-5333.!
