How can you adopt?

The process is straight forward:


  • browse our adoption list and choose a new friend
  • read and review the requirements
  • submit a completed application
  • have a home visit from a SHARE representative.  SHARE does not approve pasture boarding. Our horses are accustomed to stalls and thus, if boarding, please have stalled boarding.
  • sign contract and pay adoption fee


Just click on the forms below to download everything you need.
