Approx. 16.0+ hand bay Thoroughbred gelding

Adoption Fee: $850
Riley is a big, friendly gelding who was rescued off a slaughter feedlot in 2016. After tracking his race history he was found to have come off the track in 2015 after being injured during his last race.
Riley is currently undergoing basic training to continue his transition from racing to regular riding. He has healed bows to both front tendons, but is sound for flat work and is currently going walk/trot under saddle. Riley will NOT be suitable for jumping because of his tendons, but he will make a great pleasure riding horse for the right person!
Cisco is a gentle, very personable and VERY handsome horse that was rescued from slaughter underweight and in need of gelding. He is started under saddle and is very easy going and willing to learn.
Cisco has a mild case of COPD, so will not be able to do heavy riding or live/ride at high altitudes. He will do best as a light riding pleasure horse for puttering around a neighborhood or flatter, easy trails at lower elevations.
He requires an intermediate/experienced rider at this point just because he is still green, but he will ultimately make a very nice family horse. He does not always socialize well with other horses, and does best with other geldings who are not low on the pecking order.
The following horses are currently available for adoption through Shiloh Acres Horse Rescue or our partner rescue, Front Range Equine Rescue.
All horses will go to their new homes current on vaccinations and dewormings, as well as farrier and dental care.

Kindle is a stunningly beautiful, elegant little mare that was rescued off a slaughter feedlot thanks to Front Range Equine Rescue. She was not halter trained upon arrival, and was very fearful of humans. With time, patience, and training, she has turned into a lovely girl who is going very well under saddle. Kindle is currently walk/trot/canter, and is being introduced to riding outside of the arena on trails.
Kindle requires a quiet intermediate rider at this time, and would be a wonderful partner for a smaller rider looking to do trails or pleasure riding.

Benji joined the rescue after he was abandoned at a boarding stable, underweight, full of briars, and very scared and untrusting of people. He has been started under saddle, but still requires further training and confidence building.
Benji is a beautiful mover and overall friendly guy with great potential. He currently requires an experienced rider/trainer to continue his progress.

Adoption Fee: $1000
Chief was an owner surrender to the rescue in late 2016. During his time with us, we have found him to be a wonderfully trained, quiet gelding with a great work ethic. He rides Western or English, in the arena or on trails, and with other horses or by himself.
Chief would be the perfect companion for an intermediate rider wanting to do trails or other fun riding.
Tilly & Mowgli
Approx. 38/36" Miniature Mare/Gelding
Est. year of birth: 1996/2006
Adoption Fee: $300
Tilly and Mowgli are mother and son silver dapple Miniatures that were rescued off a slaughter feedlot in horribly neglected condition. Their hooves were severely overgrown and hadn't been trimmed in many years.
After months of rehab, their hooves are in much better condition now and they are ready to find a new home together!
Mowgli is very outgoing and friendly and loves nothing more than to be loved on by people. His mother, Tilly, is more reserved, but is easy to handle and enjoys quit attention. Both unfortunately have Cushings Disease, which is easily managed through a medication they get fed daily.
They are a very adorable, sweet pair who deserve to go to a home that will show them the best love and care after the years of neglect they suffered.
