Thank you for thoroughly and completely filling out this application. We realize that it is lengthy but we hope that you will understand that we must make the best effort possible to protect the horses in our care. We will evaluate this application with regard ONLY to the horse’s wellbeing. It may take several weeks for us to provide a response regarding our evaluation of this application. You will receive one of the following responses: APPROVED: We will offer you the opportunity to adopt as long as you sign and notarize the adoption contract and pay the adoption fee. We reserve the right to revoke, retract or reevaluate your approval if ANY of the information included in your initial application changes. This includes your employment status, the number of animals on your property and/or the plans for where the horse will be kept, what the horse’s job will be or any other factor. Approval does not 100% guarantee a finalized adoption. CONDITIONAL APPROVAL: We may offer you “conditional approval” if we believe the answers in your application that concern us – can be corrected. This may include required riding lessons or modifications to the pasture/shelter. We cannot agree to keep a specific horse for you while these matters are addressed. The horse will be adopted to the first FULLY APPROVED applicant. Conditional approval may also include a suggestion that you consider a DIFFERENT horse than the one for which you applied. While we may consider you a great applicant we may determine you aren’t the right match for a particular horse. We may suggest that you consider another horse in our network. DENIED: We may deny your application for ANY REASON. We are not required to provide you with a specific reason for denial. We will not tolerate harassment or bashing from applicants that are denied. We at WVHN are all open minded modest people. But please understand we will NOT agree to place a horse in a situation that we feel is unsafe – for the horse, the adopter or the adopter’s family. PERIOD. If your application is denied initially we welcome you to reapply after 6 months.
