Rehome

Due to the fact that RVR Horse Rescue cannot take in all horses, we have designed this courtesy listing as a place to post horses looking for good homes. RVR does not guarantee the health, soundness, or temperament of the horses posted below. These horses have not been evaluated by a RVR Horse Rescue representative. RVR Horse Rescue is not responsible for the details listed with each horse, and it does not have knowledge of the horse owner’s credentials.

Please contact the owner directly.

Horses will remain listed on the rehoming network for 3 months.

Sparky

Spark to Ignite

Sparky is a six year old chestnut gelding. Tall and athletic at 16.1 HH, he has Secretariat and Northern Dancer on both sides of his pedigree. Sparky came to us sound and strong. The afternoon we turned him out for the first time, he got so excited about the cows on the other side of the fence he tried to jump the fence, and got caught. He injured his leg and he's been on pasture rest since February. Our staff has done an amazing job of working with him, diligently applying cryotherapy and warm water and bandaging him and monitoring his progress. He has had electromagnetic therapy, and received 'white glove' treatment here, and now the bone is healed. At this time he does not need continuing medical care but we are still giving him a few more months to heal to be sure the soft tissue and ligaments are fully healed. But we have already begun to work him lightly in the round pen to condition and strengthen his legs and to see his temperament. Sparky has had a few long line sessions and a light youth rider on him. He now has no fear or excitement around the cows and has gotten used to the ranch environment. Sparky is under saddle, he has learned to be a 'normal' horse, getting along with his herd. Sparky is easy to handle and has good breaks. He has potential to go in any direction. He is big and handsome with strong feet and a muscular hind end. He's easy to halter and lead, willing and eager to please. Sparky is a sweet boy, and this is an opportunity for someone to adopt him who can be patient while he finishes healing. Once that's done, he will be awesome. Sunmoon Ranch, Sarasota, FL. Nominal adoption fee. Call Allen Reynolds 941-685- 3962.

Kid

Kid

Kid is a 16 year old beautiful black and white APHA registered paint, with great bloodlines. He stands 15.3 HH, handsome and balanced. He has two current issues: one is his summer itch dermatitis and the other is that when he came to us his feet were long causing discomfort and tightness in his gait. Both of these are treatable. He is otherwise healthy. We have been working on his feet with the farrier to get them balanced and has shown great improvement which will continue with proper exercise and stretching. He is wearing front shoes that help alot. That being said, Kid is a great ride, listens well and is laid back. He loves his persons, he talks to you when you come to the fence. Kid has a lively personality and a sweet disposition. When in stall he relaxes and naps. Kid needs to be a one person horse with lots of attention. He's very smart and given that he likes to back up, he MIGHT be taught to do tricks. He's very beautiful and striking in appearance. His age gives him maturity but he is very happy being engaged and active. He has been very well cared for here and we would like to be sure this will continue. Our horses get the best feed, hay, and supplements. We will be happy to show him any time. Sunmoon Ranch, Sarasota, FL. Nominal adoption fee. Call Allen Reynolds 941-685- 3962.

Angel has a bit of an attitude, but a heart of gold.  I'm looking to find her a place so she can retire out to pasture and live out her days. I would take her back in a heartbeat, but don't have the space. Located in Lithia, FL.

Beantown Skipper

Beantown Skipper

Beanie is an OTTB very tall, standing 16.2 HH, and muscular. He is 8 years old, foaled in 2009. His coloring is dark bay, bleaching out in the sun, tending toward liver in the winter. Beanie is very smart. He loves everyone. He loves attention and he is best in a situation
where he is doted on. He had corneal ulcers at the track so his eyes have cloudy spots which impairs his vision somewhat, and compromises his vision in shadows, making him cautious in new situations. (moonblindness). Once he became comfortable with his
surroundings and his handlers he calmed down considerably. He also had a hoof wall that broke off at some point in the recent past at the track. The hoof is growing out nicely, though it is clubbed. We treated this with prosthetics, to keep him balanced so he would not have any other structural damage to his shoulders or hips. Now he is cantering beautifully at liberty in the pasture, and he no longer needs the prosthetic hoof . He looks very strong and does not appear to have any long term damage. Beanie will ride very well for a light pleasure rider who is not looking for a competition horse, due to his hoof and eyes. So for Bean, the ideal situation is this: a doting owner who loves affectionate horses, who wants to ride lightly, and who will understand his vision. Besides being very smart and loving, the other wonderful thing about Beanie is that he is GORGEOUS! When you see him move you are just captivated. He has a big heart and you can feel him when you are around him. He would love to be a cow horse because he really enjoys hanging out with the cows next door. This is the horse for you if you want impressive looks and a soft heart.

Chevron

Chevron Light

Seven year old, (foal date Mar. 9, 2010, ) off track thoroughbred, bay color, 15.2 HH registered, handsome, with a mellow temperament and eager to please personality.  He is willing to do whatever you ask of him. We had hoped he would become a polo pony, and we introduced him to the mallet and ball. He took to it with no problems, and is willing to do anything we introduced him to. He's been on trail, he's cantered and jumped. He is a smooth ride.
But recently we noticed he was limping so we had him examined and it turns out he has arthritis in his stifles. This is not unusual for a track horse, and it is manageable. But no polo for Chevy.
However, with proper care and nutrition, he will make a great light rider, light arena rider, or trail horse. He loves people, and is friendly with other horses. He stands, loads, clips, and he is otherwise very healthy. Even with the swampy condition of southwest Florida in the summer, his feet are in great shape. We have been trimming him gradually to correct the racing cut, and his pastern angles are looking great. He has beautiful conformation. Chevy will be your best friend, and this is an opportunity for the person who likes to take it easy and have a supersweet riding companion.

This beauty is current on all vaccines. I would be willing give this horse away. The person who gets her needs to know how to ride and know something about horses. I got her from a horse trader that was going to send to the killers. I am a horse lover and bought her. I have had her for about 1 year. I am nearly 70 and do not have time for her and in need of a hip replacement. Located in Haines City, FL.
