At Out Side In we have horses in all shapes and sizes and we love them all! Thoroughbreds are not only great race horses, but they make incredible show horses, companion horses and even trail horses. They are incredibly athletic and very brave. They make tremendous family and therapy horses because of there intuitiveness, intelligence, sensitivity and personality. They love people and are incredibly in tuned to human emotions.
We usually have between 18 and 22 horses at the farm and although many of them will be with us forever, we always have horses available for adoption. As much as we hate to see any of our horses leave, adopting them to loving homes allows us to continue to help more horses! We take pride in making sure all of our horses go to homes that are the right fit for both the horse and the owner, and take the time to learn your needs and match you with the right horse. Before and after the adoption, we have a team of incredible trainers and horse professionals who can give you all the information you need about the specific needs of each horse.
Some of our horses may have physical issues which make them only suited to be companion horses, while others have potential to be top show horses. Adoption fees reflect the suitability, soundness, and potential of the horse and can range from $500 to $10,000. Fees will typically increase with the amount of training the horse has had.
Please contact us at (616) 402-4050 or firstname.lastname@example.org to get information on horses that are currently available for adoption and to request an adoption application.
If you have always dreamed of owning a horse, but don't have the knowledge, time or money to adopt, please see our sponsorship page for incredible opportunities to become involved with these horses without the time and financial commitment of owning a horse!
At over 17 hands, Joey is a gentle giant. He is 6 years old and was retired sound from the track.
Joey is as sweet and quiet as they come and has absolutely no bad habits.
Easy to handle on the ground and coming along wonderfully in his training. He is eager to please and very intelligent. We just can't say enough good about this horse.
Abbey is a beautiful 5 year old mare with wonderful confirmation. She has been brought along slowly and has been shown once, however, she is still quite green and would require more training with an advanced rider.
Abbey has amazing form over jumps and could excel in the hunter or jumper ring. Abbey has an incredibly sweet personality and is wonderful to work with on the ground.
Mozart is a four year old gelding that was just retired from racing. Mozart is sound and has a great personality, he just didn't want to be a race horse.
He is currently turned out and enjoying some "down time" before beginning his training.
Mozart has great confirmation and is incredibly athletic. He should excel as a sport horse and looks to have the potential to be a great jumper.
Kitty is a seven year old mare who was retired sound at 5 years old. She has been to a couple shows and has great potential in the hunter ring.
Kitty is very quiet and is definitely a "push" ride. She is safe for beginner riders and has great potential as a show horse with some finishing work.
Eddie is a 10 year old gelding who was retired from racing sound.
Eddie is 16+ hands and has been enjoying his "down time", but is getting ready to begin his training.
Eddie is a beautiful mover and is very willing. He is truly a joy to be around and we can't wait to give him his second career!
All 17 hands of Stanley is lovable. He's 7 years old, but retired off the track at 5 sound. He just didn't have any interest in going fast.
Stanley is very easy going and versatile. He has been to local hunter/jumper shows and would make a create B circuit contender.. or he could be a great trail horse, this one does it all!
Gem is a 10 year old, 16.2 hand Thoroughbred who never raced. Gem is very well balanced and a great mover. You won't find a sweeter temperament either!
She has proven herself in the show ring jumping 3' with ease at A and B circuit shows. She is used regularly as a therapy horse, but her first love is jumping!
