21 year-old ~15hh Standardbred mare- light pleasure riding (walk/trot) for confident advanced beginner to intermediate rider or companion horse

In January 2011, Justice was saved from New Holland auction, starving and in foal. She was pulled off an Amish truck since she would be at high risk for slaughter in her condition. Sadly, her filly, Astraea, was stillborn that April. Since 2011, she has been adopted out three times as a family horse, most recently to a home for nine years until her adopter passed away.

Justice is very sweet and loves attention. She has a calm and quiet nature and is good around children. Justice has been mostly out of work for a few years, so she needs a confident advanced beginner to intermediate rider to get her back into riding as she's more woah than go.

Since she is now in her early 20s, we are seeking a home where Justice will only be lightly ridden (walk/trot only) or a beloved companion horse. Either way, HRU is seeking a committed, loving forever home where Justice can be well-loved during her golden years. Justice is barefoot and medication-free with no current health issues.


20 year-old 16.2 hand Thoroughbred mare - companion/pasture pet only

Piper is a Thoroughbred mare who was lovingly surrendered in February 2022 when her long-time owner could no longer care for her due to illness. While her exact recent history is unknown, she may have lived on a property alone for the last several years. Her registered Jockey Club name is Pipe's Perception.

Piper was a lovely riding horse in her past, but due to arthritis from old bilateral apical sesamoid fractures, she is now only pasture sound.

Piper is an alpha mare and good with laid back horses in turnout. She is a smart, spunky and sweet to those she knows and trusts. Piper would do best with an experienced person who can give her decent attention. Like many horses, the way to her heart is through carrots and apples.


Estimated 20 year-old 11.2 hand pony mare - permanent HRU resident

Willow is an owner surrender who came to HRU in November 2020. She had a large salivary stone in her face removed after coming into our care. Willow needs her mouth emptied by a veterinarian on rare occasion since feed can build up in the pocket.

Due to her ongoing health issues, including seizures, Willow is a permanent resident in need of sponsors.
