If you are interested in adopting any of the horses that are currently available, please fill out an adoption application and email it to

If you don’t see your perfect horse yet, but think that some day you would like to adopt a Sound Equine Options horse, please fill out an application now so we know what type of horse you are looking for, and if he/she comes along, we can let you know!

We appreciate your willingness to open your heart and home to horses in need. Your dedication allows our organization to rescue horses that we would otherwise have to turn away due to lack of space in our existing foster homes.

The overall mission of the Foster Care Program is to give horses individualized care to ensure that they will make an easy transition into training or to their new forever home.

To become an approved Foster Home, fill out and submit the Foster Application.

Sound Equine Options was founded in 2009 and is volunteer based. Volunteers are involved in virtually all aspects of Sound Equine Options from cleaning stalls to finding the perfect forever homes. The strength of our volunteer program at Sound Equine Options determines our ability to impact our community and its horses.

Check our calendar dates for orientations and upcoming events for opportunities to help.
