HOW TO ADOPT A HORSE Please call the business office at 781-925-0472 or email info@paragoncarousel to inquire about the availability of horses. Each year in November we contact current seasonal horse supporters and offer them the opportunity to renew their "adoption" for the next year. In February we will have a list of available horses for you to review.
Adopt A Horse
WOULD YOU LIKE TO "ADOPT" A CAROUSEL HORSE FOR THE SEASON OR PERPETUALLY? The carousel map allows you to find the location of each horse according to its number. The outside ring are standers with single numbers. Letter "A" horses are next. Row 3 horses are letter B, and letter C horses are located in the inside ring. There are 12 large standers, 42 jumpers, 8 small standers (ponies), and the 4 chariot horses for a grand total of 66. The 4 rows and 2 Roman chariots classify this merry-go-round as a "Grand Carousel."
Since 1996, 19 horses have been given "Perpetual Adoption" status and permanently named in gratitude to their benefactors magnanimous contribution of $10,000 for each horse. This outstanding adoption option remains open today. You may choose to donate the funds all at one time or in the amount of $1,000 for ten years (or sooner if you wish!).
This special program went into effect in 2013 to celebrate the 85th birthday of the Paragon Carousel and will continue each year as we countdown to our 90th Birthday! Sponsor recognition and naming rights to a horse are given for the season with a donation of $250. Sponsorship of the Roman Chariots will go to the highest bidder. Currently the only horses available for adoption for the 2016 are the eight standing "ponies" that flank each chariot, the four chariot horses and the two chariots and an outside stander, horse number six. Please contact us if you are interested in "adopting" one or more of these horses or a chariot. Thank you!
MOST ALL OF OUR HORSES HAVE BEEN ADOPTED FOR THE 2016 SEASON! Thank you to all who have supported us with this program. There are still two Chariots available as well as standing ponies that are positioned next to the chariots, along with horse number six, an outside stander. If you are interested in adopting a horse for the season or perpetually, please call our business office at 781-925-0472 or email us at info@paragoncarousel. Thank you!
