"GO" Pony Inquiry
We are interested in learning more about the horse you have for donation. Great Oak Equine Assisted Programs has very specific needs, as it takes a unique horse to help ensure the safety of our special riders so we require up to a two-month trial period to determine if the horse is suitable and happy in our programs. During the trial period, ownership of the horse remains in the donor/seller. Only upon acceptance of the horse in writing from Great Oak does ownership of the horse pass to Great Oak. During this trial period, Great Oak has the option in its sole discretion to determine that the horse is unsuitable for its program, whereupon Great Oak shall return the horse to the owner and Great Oak is released from any further obligation hereunder.
