Sophie’s Illusion







Classic Illusion

Sky Classic



Sophie arrived underweight with a dull coat and has blossomed since. She has wonderful manners and is very eager to please. She responds best to a very quiet hand that will allow her to think through a situation and come up with the correct response to what you are asking. She has made huge progress and has shown a huge amount of talent. Sophie has given walk/trot lessons to timid riders and does amazing, her light mouth makes a downward transition easy. Sophie can easily go in any direction from english, western, or even as a therapy horse. 

She does have some “track jewelry” with a calcium deposit in the right front ankle that has been radiographed and determined to be non-limiting at any point in the future. She also has a scar on her left rear hock that we also radiographed that showed a clean joint. These images and the report can be provided upon request. 

Thank you for your interest in adopting or fostering with NTWO. Please download a copy here and submit it to [email protected]. Please indicate on your application if you are willing to take foster home placements.

There is space on the application to indicate the horse(s) you are interested in, if you are not sure which horse would best suit your needs, please share what you hope to do with the horse and our team can point you in the right direction. Adopters are encouraged to fill out an application as early in the process as possible to allow sufficient time to contact references. NTWO cannot place a hold on a horse. Adopters are encouraged to come to the farm and meet the horse(s) they are interested in. Adoptions without meeting the horse first will only be approved with extenuating circumstances.

We do our best to keep the horse listings as up to date as possible, but due to the volume of horses coming in, there is a delay. If you don't see anything yet that you think would suit you, please fill out an application so you can be notified first when a horse that would suits your needs arrives! Adopted horses will be tracked to ensure continued satisfactory care throughout their lives, resale is allowed.

Foster homes are required to have an approved Adoption Application on file.


For emergencies, call us and we will help get you in touch with individuals or organizations within our network.
