The Maryland Equine Transition Service Needs Your Help!

METS is a program of the Maryland Horse Council Foundation, a 501c(3) registered Maryland Non-Profit. That means METS relies solely on donations from people just like you! METS offers many of its transition and end-of-life services for free, or at a reduced cost. Please consider a one-time or monthly donation to METS so we can continue to serve the Maryland horse community and ensure that no Maryland horse ever ends up in the slaughter pipeline.

Chessa is sweet and as pretty as they come. She is a Thoroughbred mare that was foaled in 2016 and never raced. This kind young lady is looking for a forever home where she can continue to be loved, pampered, and have the very important job as a solid companion horse.
    Chessa is gentle and submissive to other horses but cares deeply for them. She sadly suffered a pasture injury as a 3-year-old. This left her with a fractured pelvis, that is fully healed but has caused significant muscle atrophy over her left hip and hindquarter area.

    She is only suited to being a companion horse due to her injury. Her current owner did have her evaluated as a broodmare. She is pasture sound and requires no special maintenance other than the usual TB care such as grain, good quality pasture/hay, and routine farrier care.
    Chessa currently lives out in a lovely paddock with two bigger and older TB mares that are in foal. Chessa was lovely to handle for catching, haltering, grooming, and general handling. She willingly picked up her feet but did show some expected stiffness with her hind legs.

Her current owner would love to see her go to a home that had a handful of horses. Where Chessa would continue to be loved as much as she is now but giving her a more formal role as a babysitter to another horse/s or foals.  Chessa would likely need an intermediate/advanced handler due to working through some slight herd-bound tendencies. However, she likely would be gentle and easy for children to groom and love on, while under supervision from her experienced handler.

 She is up to date with her vaccinations but is due for her teeth to be floated. Her current owner will pull a new Coggins for her prior to the transition.

Always Maggie

  Always Meggie (“Meggie)” is a 1998, 16hh Thoroughbred mare looking for her next home. She earned almost $30,000 on the track before retiring to her current home. She’s quite well behaved on the ground, but she’s green under saddle, having never had consistent training after her race days.
    Meggie is sound, barefoot, and up to date on all vaccines (Coggins will be obtained before she’s moved). She’s best suited for an advanced rider/trainer, or someone working closely with the same. She’s currently turned out 24/7 with a mare, though she has been out with geldings in the past with no issues. She is quite dominant in the herd.
    If you’re looking for a training project, Meggie might be your girl!
