We can also tell you about any new residents who have arrived at the farm, but haven't arrived on the website yet!
If you are interested in adoption, please complete our Adoption Application and return it to the Eqine Rescue League via email or snail mail. Click here for more information about our Adoption Program.
All of our horses are up to date on coggins, vaccinations, farrier, dental and deworming.
Cody James is a bay 1992 OTTB gelding who was picked up by the ERL as a stray horse in Warren County several years ago. He is an ex-polo pony standing at 15.1hh. He is super affectionate and handsome. He is a gentleman with excellent ground manners and is a pleasant horse to work with. He is a lovely horse with many years of love and fun to offer, but as a senior citizen he has special needs - he requires three meals a day of a soaked complete feed and a blanket in the winter. Although he requires a little senior management, Cody's adoptive family will receive the sweet love and appreciation only a senior equine offers.
Jake from State Farm
ER Jake from State Farm (“Jake”) is a bay 1996 OTTB gelding standing at 16.2hh. He came to ERL in 2018 with his best friend Willie and they are a very bonded pair. Jake is very kind, easy to handle and loves to be groomed – a true gentleman. He is available for adoption as a companion only to the right home and we prefer Willie and Jake to be adopted together.
ER Kitty Hawk (“Kitty”) is a bay 2006 Miniature Horse mare standing at 28 inches tall. She is a victim of laminitis and has rotation of the coffin bone in all four feet. At this time, she is not foundering, however she could never be turned out on grass as she is also insulin-resistant. She is available to a home that will provide her a comfortable, healthful environment to suit her needs.
Leo is a 2006 American Quarter Horse gelding standing 15.2 hh. Leo was surrendered to the ERL in June from another rescue organization that could not care for him. In the short time we have had this amazing horse, we have all bonded with him. Extremely handsome and personality plus this sweet guy will be a welcome addition to a family with lots of love to give. An easy keeper and sound, this guy will pack around an experienced rider with confidence!
Rhythm and Blues
ER Rhythm and Blues ("Jazz") is a black and white 2004 Shetland Pony gelding. He was given to the ERL when his owners could no longer care for him properly. He suffers from laminitis and COPD, but with the right care for his conditions he will make a wonderful addition to someone’s family. He is not rideable due to his medical conditions; however, he is excellent with kids and would be a great teacher for how to properly care for a pony.
River is a 2014 Miniature mare standing 37 inches tall and is considered a Liver Chestnut. She is Scottie’s Mom.
River, Sawyer and Scottie all came from a back yard breeding operation, that did not have the animals’ best interest.
River is super sweet, and a beautiful model of a Falabella Horse. While she is 8 years old, she has not received any training, nor has she ever been ridden. With patience and guidance this pony could be a cherished member of the family.
River is available to the right home.
Sarge is a black 1991 Tennessee Walking Horse X Saddlebred gelding standing at 15.1hh. He can be very shy around strangers but with lovies and patience he is learning to trust humans again. Under the kind, quiet hands of some of our staff he is blossoming into a very special horse with a loving personality. He is a very attractive horse that is available as a companion only.
ADOPTED - Scotty is a 2020 Pinto Miniature horse gelding standing at 36 inches tall. Scottie and Sawyer have the same father so they are half-brothers.
Recently gelded, and learning manners, this young horse is quickly becoming a favorite here at the shelter. Scottie had not even been taught to lead before he came here, and has excelled at his studies thus far.
We believe great things are all about this pony, and will one day be a Rock Star!!
Scottie is available to the right home.
Suit & Ty
Ty is a 2000 Paint Quarter Horse cross gelding standing at 16hh. Ty was recently returned to the ERL when his companion passed away. A lovely horse he is, and another favorite of the volunteers. He is easy to work with and a super big love bug who needs his own people to dote on him. Ty is retired now and is suitable for a companion horse only.
William Ebenezer Bubs II
ER William Ebenezer Bubs II (“Willie”) is a bay 1999 Mustang gelding who was saved from slaughter as a three-day old colt, at the time still at the side of his wild mustang mother. He was halter-trained as a young horse, but has spent the past several years untouched. He returned to ERL in 2018 at no fault of his own, and is learning that humans make great cookie-dispensers and give great scratches. With patience and the right handling, he would make someone a special friend. Willie is available for adoption to the right home.
