Want to learn effective strategies for adopting out special needs and unrideable horses? You won’t want to miss our presenters’ tips for placing equines who may be mislabeled as unadoptable. They’ll share how they identify adopters and give them the support they need to provide loving homes to “hard to adopt” horses.
Hear from two agencies who have successfully placed harder-to-adopt equine. Specialists from RVR Horse Rescue and This Old Horse will explain how they:
Market special needs and unrideable horses
Identify and recruit adopters
Make good matches
Provide effective post-adoption follow-up and support
This webinar is suited for any organization that is interested in facilitating the adoption of equines.

Stacy came to RVR in 2014 and soon became a regular caretaker for the horses. Her knowledge of each horse’s needs and personality quirks has made her an ideal matchmaker for potential adopters. She began serving as RVR’s Adoption Coordinator in 2016, screening potential adopters, leading them through the matching and probationary period, and making recommendations to the executive board. Stacy has the special honor of being Sarge’s favorite human at RVR.
