Montgomery Creek Ranch (MCR) is a 2,000 acre sanctuary for wild horses in Northern California. There are currently over 200 wild horses living in the big herd forever free, and 20-30 younger horses in training on site. We are developing a facility that will accommodate programs and visitors at the ranch. We have both saddle and companion horses for adoption.
Adopt a Horse
MCR saddle horses are ready to ride! These horses were gentled and started at MCR and are ready to be your partner. Our saddle horses have been ridden extensively around the ranch, in all kinds of terrain, up and down hills, through water, alone and with other horses. Adoption fees for trained horses range from $1,750- $5,000.

Miss E is a 14.3 H five-year-old, born here at MCR from a nice sorrel mare that we saved from an auction. Miss E is a very pretty chestnut with a feminine build. She’s sure-footed and willing on the trail and has been used to rope, sort, and work cattle. She is very soft in the face, and has a nice walk, trot, lope, and stop.
There are a few horses available for adoption at MCR that are not suitable for riding. These horses have been gentled and love being with other horses and people. All have good personalities, do not require special vet care, and can keep up with other horses in a pasture. They like to play and move at all gaits at liberty and do not appear to have anything wrong with them. We are making these horses available for adoption so that they can find a forever home and possibly be a friend to a horse that you already have!

Banjo was born at MCR in 2014. He is very friendly, enjoys attention, and gets along with all horses. He was born with a disorder that affects his balance making him unsafe to ride, but he gets along just fine on his own and keeps up with other horses in a pasture.
Height: 15.2 hands
Cowboy was rescued by MCR in 2013 as a baby along with his pregnant mother from an auction in Nevada. Cowboy is a 6 year old very friendly gelding and is quite striking with his big blaze and four white stockings. Unfortunately, he does not have good feet and would not hold up as a riding horse.
Horses in Training
At MCR, we believe that training is the best life insurance for a horse. We pride ourselves on giving horses in training a solid foundation of ground work before they are ridden. Our horses are gentled using Natural Horsemanship methods. Training prospects are good minded, have good conformation, and have potential to excel in many disciplines.
Herd: Triple B HMA
Louise is a 3-year-old sorrel filly from the Triple B Herd Management Area (HMA) in Nevada. She has a beautiful wavy flaxen mane and tail, is well-built, balanced and has a smooth gait. She only recently started her training and will not be available for a few months.
What They’re Saying
MCR has helped over 60 horses find new homes.
When you adopt a horse from Montgomery Creek Ranch, you are saving another horse that we can rescue from high-risk situations including auctions, the slaughter pipeline, and government holding.
