COMPANION HORSES

Do you have a lonely horse at home that would like a Companion horse?  Do you have an empty pasture that could use one of these beauties? These horses are very special to us, and we would love to see them go to forever homes where they can live out the rest of their days at ease.  They truly deserve it. Companion horses are typically over 20, but some may still be rideable with proper care. Other companion horses may be younger but have some condition that prevents them from being ridden.

The adoption fee for a Companion horse is only $275.  This fee includes the $25 adoption application fee.  We make every effort to have adopted horses be up-to-date on their vaccinations, worming and farrier work.  

>> For details on how to adopt any of these horses, please see our Adoption Process page.

Black Pearl

Mare
Arabian Cross
2008
15 hh

Black Pearl has been patiently waiting for someone to take her home; she has been at Equine Outreach since she was a foal.  Black Pearl is halter broke and extremely sweet.  She has Wobbler Syndrome, so she isn’t a candidate for riding, but she'd make another horse a wonderful friend and companion.

Blue

Gelding
1996 (estimated)
15.3 hh

Mr. Blue would be so happy to have his own person.  He loves attention, is very calm, and has impeccable ground manners.  He used to move out on the trail, but was not “hot” or “ill-behaved.” Blue stands quietly and nicely to be haltered and saddled.  However, due to his severe swayback, he isn't a candidate for the riding. But would make a wonderful companion horse.

Blueberry

Mare
Pony
1997?

Blueberry is a sweet pony that came from a riding school in Hood River. She has a little bit of attitude and a rock-n-roll mane but is really sweet once you get to know her. She has some arthritis and a bad knee so it is unrideable despite having taught many kids how to ride when she was younger. She spent a few months with a foster family during the summer of 2017 but is back at the ranch now.

BonBon

Mare 
Thoroughbred
1994
15.3 hh

Bon Bon is as-sweet-as-can-be and gets along well with people, kids, dogs, and other horses.  She has fantastic ground manners. BonBon has a lip tattoo, indicating that she was a racehorse at some point in her life. Thankfully, her racing days are over now.


She needs continued training, and now has Hunter's Bump so she would need a soundness check before riding.

Calamity Jane

Mare
Thoroughbred
1994
16 hh

 CJ (Calamity Jane) is a lovely girl that halters, leads, grooms, and picks up her feet just fine. Her right front hoof is sensitive due to a blown-out knee, so it might take some coaxing.
However, she has a very sweet disposition and would make a wonderful companion horse for someone with experience.

Casino

Mare
Thoroughbred (Registered, "Asti Casino")
1998
​15.1 hh

Casino is a registered Thoroughbred ("Asti Casino") and she has a racing record with the Jockey Club, but will need to be restarted. She does not trust easily, so she's looking for a very special person. She cannot be a solo horse; she needs the companionship of at least one other horse. She has a patient and kind personality, and she would love to be a part of multi-horse home.  Can you give her one?

Dark Star (Hag Bag)

Mare
Thoroughbred (Registered, "Hag Bag")
1994
16 hh

'Star' is currently considered a Sanctuary Horse as she is extremely bonded with Bunny.

 

Yes, we know, "Hag Bag" isn't the most flattering Thoroughbred registered name, but as you can see, this mare is really a beauty! Now called Dark Star, she is kind and gentle and would love attention from you. She halters like a dream and stands quietly to be groomed and for the farrier. This lovely girl would love to have a new home with you.

Harmony

Mare
Saddlebred
2004
16 hh

Harmony came in without much information, but she is friendly and gentle.
She has a neurological condition that she has been treated for and now stands with rear legs out. She is easy going and would make a wonderful companion horse for your horse or yourself.

Klamath

Gelding
1994
15 hh

Currently, at a Foster Home. Come meet the beautiful white horse Klamath who was rescued from a kill pen. His ground manners are faultless - an absolute dream to lead and groom- and would make a delightful companion for you and/or your horse.
Klamath is a favorite of our volunteers and loves human interaction.

Maggie (Pay Commander)

Mare
Quarter Horse (Registered, "Pay Commander")
2005
15 hh

Maggie is a registered Quarter Horse who has been diagnosed with Wobbler Syndrome.  She has a super sweet personality, and is very people friendly!  Maggie adores attention, so she would appreciate a home where someone would care for her and make her feel extra special.

Paige

Mare
Thoroughbred
1998 (est)
16 hh

Paige is friendly on her own terms, depending on her mood. A solid partner could bring her a long way. She needs someone that can provide consistency to work with her and bring her to her full potential.

Rose

Mare
Thoroughbred (Registered, "Clonakilty Rose")
2001
15.3 hh

Rose is a registered Thoroughbred who raced in California under the name of "Clonakilty Rose".
Rose can be a bit nervous and distracted and needs to work on space. She can lead and pick up her feet for the farrier, but not great. She needs someone that is able to care for her and continue to provide consistent training. She has had some lameness in the past and would need to be checked for soundness.
Could that be you?
