Polo Pony Rescue at Banbury Cross

Accepts donated horses: 


Donated horses from private owners who are not in financial need must come with a substantial donation to the rescue.

We will go up to $500 to purchase at auction where a horse is at risk of going to a kill buyer.

Potential for Second Career


We try to mostly accept horses that are sound enough to be used for something unless they are in real danger if we do not take the horse. 

Offers permanent retirement for horses:


We retire horses that prove to have soundness or behavior issues indicating that they should not be ridden in the future.

Procedures to screen adopters:

In person meeting required. They must meet and ride the horse. We do criminal back round checks & deliver horses to their new home ensuring that we see the facility that the animal will live at. 

Adoption Fee: 

Ranges from $400 - $2,000 depending on age and soundness. Absolutely no resale or rehoming.
