Cavalia is offering two former performance horses – for adoption!
Here is the Cavalia Adoption Program link.
We are often asked what our horses do after their time in the spotlight ends. First, it must be said that Cavalia’s horses are on tour for about 6 years on average. We then ensure that their retirement will provide exceptional living conditions adapted to the needs of each horse. These needs can vary depending on their abilities, their age and their physical condition.
We have a 72-acre farm almost exclusively dedicated to our horses’ retirement. In the summer, most are turned out all day and night. After Halloween, when the weather changes, they return to nights in the stall, but they still go out four to six hours a day.
Some of them will be offered a semi-retirement. The horse would then continue to be ridden and trained on a regular basis. The company works in finding an adoptive home that will give them this opportunity.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO ADOPT OR PURCHASE A CAVALIA HORSE?
We have certain recruits who will not take part in any of our shows. It sometimes happens that we purchase a horse and realise, after a certain period of training, that it would be preferable for the horse not to go on tour with our shows. There can be several reasons for this: the horse is uneasy with traveling, has a health issue, isn’t suitably athletic, and so on. This is why we occasionally have horses to sell or to adopt. The sales and adoption conditions are rigorous in order to guarantee the horse will have a quality of life comparable to the conditions offered by Cavalia Inc.
