CULVER MILITARY ACADEMY and CULVER GIRLS ACADEMY would like to give you a tax donation for your retired horse. The Academies are always looking for dark horses to use in their famous Black Horse Troop.

Culver is looking for horses 7 to 20 years of age, dark bay, dark brown or, preferably, black. The horse must be sound of wind and limb.

Culver provides a great home for its black (dark) horses that work in the schools program. Culver gives its horses top care, with both a farrier and dental regular schedules. The school also vaccinates on a regular schedule, and the horses used in the program work on a school vacation schedule. six times a year the horses are turned out on beautiful 80 - and 100-acre pastures.

If you choose to donate your horse to this program, be assured that the horses are given the greatest care and are used in student riding classes taught by adults with extensive experience in equine science. If you are looking for a place for your retired horse, and would like to benefit from a tax donation, please contact Mr. Ed Little at Culver Academies at (574) 842-8355 or e-mail at
