If you wish to adopt a horse from Central Illinois Horse Rescue, you must first fill out an adoption/information form. All pe When you have finally filled out the form and CIHR has done a background check you may receive the horse which you wanted. However, the horses adopted out are still a part of CIHR for one year. In that time period you may not sell, move or trade the horse without the consent of CIHR. Only after the year is up are you allowed to sell, move or trade a horse wherever you desire. If you need more information please go to the contact page.
