We will be adding new horses to this page frequently, so check back if you don’t see the right horse for you. If you are interested in a horse who is not yet available, email us for more information.
Adoption applications are accepted on a first come, first serve basis and while we make every effort for each one to have the opportunity to adopt their first choice, someone else may be approved to adopt that horse first If that happens, we will notify you and work hard to help you find another horse.
Currently over 30 of our horses and ponies are enrolled in the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge. They’ll be in training for four months with professional and amateur trainers, and then they’ll compete over an obstacle course and in a freestyle at the Challenge on October 21, 2017 in Austin, Texas at the Bluebonnet Horse Expo and they will be available for adoption to pre-approved adopters at the event. You can see a complete list of Training Challenge horses here
Posted adoption fees are not negotiable.

Adoption Paperwork and Process
In order to adopt, submit a membership application, adoption application, and membership fee. Also submit the photos requested on the adoption application. To become a member, go to the blue “join” tab in the upper right hand corner of the web page, this will take you to PayPal, or you can mail a check or money order along with your application. Please fill out the Adopt/Foster application completely. Take pictures of your property or boarding facility as listed on the application. The application and pictures can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or sent via USPS to the PO Box listed on the application. The pictures serve as self inspection and let us know that your facility is safe and horse friendly. A follow up site inspection may also be performed.
After BEHS receives a complete application, our Adoption Coordinator will contact you. If she has any questions or concerns, she’ll discuss them at that time. She’ll also talk to you about which horse(s) you are interested in and get you set up to go visit them.
Please read over our adoption policy to make sure adopting is right for you. When you adopt from BEHS, you agree to provide a home for your new equine for life – you cannot sell, give away, lease out or otherwise dispose of your equine. You also agree that you won’t breed any mares or jennies that you adopt. BEHS horses are available for adoption to members who live in Texas, Arkansas and in areas of Oklahoma and Louisiana that are near the Texas border.
When you are approved to adopt, you are also automatically approved to foster and do not need to fill out another application if you decide to foster as well.
