Finger Lakes Thoroughbred Adoption Program Application

Dear Potential Adopter:

  • There is a non-refundable $10 processing fee per application. You can pay with cash, check or online.

  • Please fill out the following form, even if you do not see the horse you would like. This is so we have your application once you do choose a horse, and it makes for a quicker process.

  • We do not hold horses while applications are being approved. The horse you want may be adopted before your application is approved.

  • We are committed to finding suitable homes for each horse, as well as a horse suited to your needs. This lessens the potential for disappointment on both ends.

  • The adoption fee must be paid in full for a horse to be held. The adopter has 7 days to pick up the horse. After 7 days we charge a $12 daily boarding fee.

  • We can recommend shippers if you need one.
