Adopt an ATFO Horse

For 2018, we will have over 20 Appalachian Trainer Face Off Horses for adoption in August in a live auction.

Both competition horses and the horses that were not able to be used for the Face Off will be adoptable through this event August 25th in Winfield, West Virginia.

In order to adopt, you need to have an application submitted and approved before August 15th.  Applications will not be accepted after that date.

We encourage you to apply soon, and an approved application does not require to select a certain horse or that you ultimately must take part in the auction. The application allows you to have the option to do so, though.

Approved applicants may visit any of the horses while in training by appointment with the trainer.

Essentially, HOP horses adopt to safe homes with a history of good horsemanship, the ability to provide sufficient care and with solid vet, farrier and peer references.

Each adopted horse goes to a home under an adoption agreement that provides terms to keep the horse safe for his/her natural life. Adoptable horses cannot be used for breeding or re-sale or be given away, so should they not work out in their adoptive home, our standard adoption fee is returned and the horse is required to return to the rescue.
