Horse Haven Montana has established a pilot program to enable horses assessed and approved for this program, to be “leased” to individuals and families while remaining in the primary care of Horse Haven.  This is a great program for the horses and for children, teens, seniors, and others who simply want to experience the joy of having a horse of their own, without having full responsibility for a horse.  This enables an individual or family to learn about caring for a horse, horse ownership, and building a relationship with a horse (or two) without being required to make a long-term commitment.  We believe that the exercise, enrichment, interaction and engagement of the horse’s mind and body will add to the well-being of the horses selected for this program, and it is beneficial for individuals and families who want to experience horses but cannot own a horse at this time.

New Friends #1

Through this program, individuals and families get a feel for horse ownership while being able to use and care for the horse at our facility.   Our goal is to ensure the best possible care for each horse — safety, health, and excellent care.  There is a monthly fee to participate in this lease/loan/love program of $250 and there is a two-month minimum.

Maverick #3

We maintain a current list of horses eligible for this program and will conduct a thorough pre-lease review if you are interested in participation.  All horses will be assessed and determined to be suitable for the program and will be up to date on all veterinary and farrier needs, including vaccinations, worming.    HHMT will maintain their care and oversight.  Thee horse remains at our facilities but you will care for and interact with the horse as if he or she is your own.  How much time and energy you put into this relationship is entirely up to you.


Our goal through this new program is to enhance education, and the meaning of horse ownership, while helping to keep horses who are in our care, engaged and exercised.  The Lease/Learn/Love Program gives individuals and families  an opportunity to enjoy a horse or horse ownership who may not be ready or able to make a long-term commitment.  If you are interested in learning more or being considered for this new program, please contact us by phone, 406.880.0683 or by email:  Tell us a little bit about yourself, your goals as they relate to horses, your experience, if any and how much time you have to devote to the horse and program.

Thank you, we look forward to hearing from you!
