Adoption Affaire

Exciting opportunities for rescues and sanctuaries to secure current and future adopters for your adoptable horses…

With tens of thousands of horse-people poised to attend the 2024 Equine Affaire in Massachusetts this fall, there’s no better place to present your horses for adoption or promote your rescue or sanctuary. The Adoption Affaire will be featured within Equine Affaire’s Horse & Farm Exhibits area in C-Barn and will provide the perfect opportunity for your adoption candidates to find their forever home.

The Adoption Affaire will include a variety of rescues and sanctuaries with healthy, trained, adoptable horses of a variety of breeds, backgrounds, and ages. Attendees can meet the horses in person and apply to adopt on the spot!

Participating in the Adoption Fair is economical and easy! The rental of a 12 x 9 “Adoption Affaire” stall for $165, also includes:
• One four-day pass to the event (a $55 value)
• An “Adoption Affaire” sign to post on the stall
• A free listing pre-event on that will provide the horse’s breed, age, gender, name, discipline, price, photo, and stall location

For added convenience, you may also rent a tack stall next to your “Adoption Affaire” stall(s) for only $125 in order to store your bedding, tack, feed, and other equipment while at the show. Though Equine Affaire is a four-day event, you do not need to occupy your “Adoption Affaire” stall all four days. You simply need to commit to exhibiting your horse for at least two days of the event.
