We consistently need sound, capable horses to teach our students on a daily basis. Horses should be discipline-appropriate with suitable prior experience. Because our programs serve students of all experience levels, we accept horses from the walk-trot/jog-canter/lope level through advanced performance horses, including reiners and cow horses.
We are in need of horses that are fit and sound, well trained in their discipline and preferably under 18 years old. Our school horses generally work one to two hours per day and four to five days per week. In order to ensure a good fit between donated horses and our needs, we ask that the owner always communicate with the college by phone or email.
We ask that donated horses meet the following qualifications;
All paperwork must be completed and submitted prior to the horse arriving the Hocking College Equine Center. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Equine Program Manager by phone at 740-753-7151 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If your horse becomes unsuitable for our program or requires a stepped-down home we will make every effort to find a new home with a reputable, humane facility that specializes in housing and caring for retired horses. If you have suggestions for where to place the horse, please share this information with us for review. The health, welfare and safety of our equine friends will always be paramount to us at Hocking College.
