Our plan was to create a shelter for equines... a rescue that would provide care, rehabilitation and adoption services for abused, neglected, abandoned and unwanted horses.
Pretty simple, we thought -- help a few horses out, we thought. We were not prepared for the floodgates that opened. The past seventeen years have been an eye opener for everyone involved with Equine Rescue, Inc. We have taken in horses with physical scars so vicious that we can only guess what happened; others with emotional scars that won't allow them to trust again.
But we have also helped many, many horses and ponies find homes with people who love them and have given them another chance at being useful riding horses or companions.
Please take a few minutes to browse our website and learn about our horse rescue work and to meet the horses that are waiting for a new chance in life.
We make sure that all animals are fully recovered before they are available for adoption. Each one receives a very thorough veterinary work up, they are temperament tested with others and people and their ability to be ridden and at what level is tested - so that we know all we can about them and are able to pass that along to the adopter. We try to make sure there are no 'surprises'.
This is a long process. It is an expensive process. But, we have found that it is a necessary process to insure their futures. Keeping them out of harm's way - for the rest of their lives - is very important to us.
If you love horses, please support us so that we can continue to help them.

Have you been wondering what Equine Rescue is all about?
Wanting to meet some of our "staff" and horses in person? Well now is your chance!
On Dec 13th between 1 and 4 we will be welcoming all visitors for an Open House. Stop by and get a tour of our sanctuary, meet all of our horses and ponies
, and win a chance at a door prize! We have lots of prizes to give away. There will also be face painting for the kids, a 50/50 raffle, stick pony races, a candy cane wish tree, coffee, hot chocolate, and lots of homemade cookies, brownies, cupcakes and treats to fill your bellies!
We are also raffling off TWO different style holiday wreaths. One is this wreath pictured here (handmade by Linda O.!) - this is made with artificial greens so you can use it year after year. (Please note that this picture does not even do it justice - it's absolutely adorable!)
The other is the wreath that Russ is making for us out of horseshoes (no picture yet as it is not complete). For a donation of $10 you will be entered to win (first winner gets pick, second winner gets other). 1 chance is $10, two chances are $20 and five chances are $35. You can make your donation for the chances here, on our website or at the open house. Winners will be drawn the following Saturday!
