This page is dedicated to other local horse rescue organizations and horses outside of our program, that are in need of new homes. Our goal is for EVERY horse to have a happy, healthy & nurturing environment, not just the ones in our program – if we can help, please let us!
It’s that time of year again, when we are receiving more calls to take in horses. In the past two weeks, we’ve had to turn away another 4 horses. We are at capacity… financially and space-wise. So were are again posting these horses on our “Other Horses” page in hopes of helping find them a new home. Theses are good horses and deserve a second chance. Transaction are ‘owner-to-owner’ and not through our program. Until we can find home for some of the horses in our program we can’t take-in any new ones. Please give them hope, give us a call or if we’ve listed the owners, give them a call.
There is a fee and a requirement (similar to the HAPI Trails Adoption Requirements) you will need to sign in order to purchases theses horses.
Between March and April alone, HAPI Trails has had request to take in eight horses. After accepting two, sadly we are now at capacity. We do not have the funds or the space to take in more, without potentially jeopardizing the care of the horses already in our program. But! we still desperately want to help these horses. We are asking the owners keep them for as long as they can, while we try to find new homes. HAPI currently has eight horses available for adoption (the six shown on the home page along with Buddy & Rosie – photos and info to come), if you would like to donate, foster or adopt one of theses horses to make room for more, please contact us asap.
Most of these horses need a new home because the owners are moving and can’t take them – THESE ARE GOOD HORSES!

Klondike Kid is a young gelding in need of a new home. He was recently placed at a kids ranch, but starting showing bad behavior, and is no longer wanted. It is not known if all the different riders is what has caused the bad behavior. He is a sweetheart to be around on the ground. He won “Sweetest Horse” at a previous barn. He does have an old bow on his left front which has never bothered him. He has jumped and done a low level event without lameness.
He flipped over in his stall in 2010 and has shown signs of soreness when brought to a canter. After many vet work ups, chiropractic (2 different ones), massage and acupuncture it was decided he would not work for eventing. Easy trail riding should be fine for him. He is up to date on shots, trimming and Coggins. We are hoping to find the right person for this gelding – to give him the second chance he desperately needs!

Chewy - Chewy is a 17 year old Tennessee Walker gelding. He has great ground manners but needs an experienced rider. Chewy has has a rough go of things, being abandoned by a previous owner. His most recent owner is moveing in July and can not take him. He was been ridden quite a bit on trails but because of a previous rough hand, Chewy fights a bit really bad, so he is ridden in a hackamore and he responds well. He is about 15.1 hands. Photos to come.

Star – Star is a lovely little appaloosa. She has a nice personality once you get to know her. But since she does have some things to work on, and because of her high energy, we would prefer to sell her to someone more experienced. She is pretty short, about 14 hands, but she has a nice, comfortable trot that makes her a joy to ride. She is about 19 years old, but pretty healthy and strong, so she has plenty more good years left in her. If we didn’t have our hands full with other horses, we would gladly keep her, because she was trained as a cutter horse and she’s a smart little thing. But she deserves someone who will work with her more than we do, and get her back into shape. With more consistent riding, she would probably make a good kids’ horse. $550 (OBO)
firstname.lastname@example.org, and numbers to call are: 208-313-5395 or 208-787-0064.

Bella is going to be on 10 acres in Pinedale with one other horse. THANK YOU!
Bella – She is 14 years old. She was attacked by mountain loin when she was a year old. It caused her an injury on her left back leg – a torn tendon. She can not be ridden, she is a companion horse only. She has a lot of years left to her. Her breed is half Arabian crossed with a Peruvian. If you are looking for a pasture mate, please consider her. Her time frame is within one month….ASAP.

The following five horses are being sold. Their owner had to move and can not take them.
UPDATED: All five of the following horses have found new homes!
Lacey is a thirteen year old registered paint. She recently had her teeth floated and it’s made a big difference. She is well mannered, loves to give kids rides, and loves to be groomed. She has been with the herd for a while so she is a little barn soar. What she would like is someone who just wants a horse to ride and pamper (a lot:). Good riding horse. Price: $400.00 (OBO)
Magnum is green broke, and would make a nice one-person horse. He needs a really soft caring hand. He has not been ridden recently, but in order to help find Magnum a home, he will be ridden soon. Price: $700.00 (OBO)
Both of these horses are healthy and strong. If you are interested in one, please contact us and we will help make the connections. If you take them together , the price is $400 total.
J-Lo – Photo & info to come
