Market and Place Your
This option is available to owners who prefer to market their horse for under $2,500. Depending on the price of the horse, a fee may be involved with the following marketing services.
METS works with a wide group of both industry-based facilities and professionals, as well as private owners, to find transitional solutions for horses. Our METS Partners include associations, clubs, trainers, training facilities, riding stables, boarding facilities, rescues, and therapeutic riding centers, as well as veterinarians and other equine industry professionals. METS will also facilitate placement with private owners who submit an approved application.
When a Partner is interested in a specific horse, METS will facilitate communication between the member and horse owner to further discuss placement.
METS also accepts inquiries and applications from private owners who wish to give a horse a home. If their application is approved and the potential for a match is there, METS will then put them in touch with the horse owner to move forward.
At no time does METS take ownership of any of the horses it assists.
METS has a Transfer of Ownership Agreement form that is available for owners’ use. It includes an agreement that no METS horse will be taken to auction or slaughter.
Owners can feel secure in knowing that METS has put parameters in place to best ensure safe placement for their horses.
Click the button below to view guidelines and instructions for how to best photograph and video your horse for marketing.
Once the horse has been fully assessed, comprehensive photos/videos will be taken of the horse. If the horse is not in suitable condition, the owner will be given guidelines for taking photos/videos themselves. The owner will also be given an email to which they can send the photos/videos once taken.
The staff will craft a written advertisement based on the history provided by the owner.
The staff will post the photos and written description on our website, our social media, and other sites, as applicable.
The staff will follow-up with owners to find out if the horse was successfully rehomed. Owners are also encouraged to keep METS informed as necessary.
