We are a privately funded Horse Rescue since 2017. We accept donations but we do not get government funding or grants. We do offer a trail riding program and lesson program that all the proceeds go directly back into the upkeep of the horses.
We currently have 17 horses up for adoption. The majority of the horses we receive are from animal control from either Darlington County, Lee County, or Kershaw County. Most of the horses we take in are in bad shape. Our job is to nurse these horses back to health. We get a vet to geld any male horse, they get seen by the vet (and get their shots and coggins), they also receive any medical treatment necessary, we have the farrier out to trim their feet as well. Every intake of a new horse cost us a minimum of $350 before we even get them on the property in vet and farrier fees and that's assuming they aren't in bad health.
Examples of Intake expenses
Gelding a horse $500
Vet Visit with Shots and Coggins $250
Basic Hoof Trim $50
Trim with Corrective shoes $150
Medications ($10 - $1000)
Special Feed for Laminitis $35 a bag
Our routine upkeep:

Round Bail of Hay - $70 a bail (1 horse can eat a bail alone in a month)
Feed - $28-35 dollars a bag (each horse 1-2 bags a month)
Medication ($10-$1000) per horse a month
If you want to talk about training to get a horse broke to ride the cost of that is $1500 a month per horse.
We have had a lot of people questioning our adoption fees. Everything we take in is put back into the rescue and we are trying to recoup some of the money we put money out for daily expenses. Our lowest adoption fee is $1000. That basically covers our intake costs and a few months of rehabbing the horse.
I have had a lot of people asking about our horses that are for adoption for $1000. These horses have not had any training for being able to be rode by us. Like I stated early training cost $1500 a month. However, in some cases the horse maybe broke to ride or at least started before getting to us. If that is the case, you may get a ridable horse. If the cost of the horse is over the $1000 adoption fee that means we have put money into its training.
To answer a lot of people's question.... No, you are not getting a kid safe dead broke horse from us for $1000. Training a horse cost more than $1000. However, we do have plenty of young horses for $1000 who you can get from us and train yourself, hire a trainer, or send them off for training.
