Horses in the Retrain group are now healthy enough to begin ground work, round pen work, or under-saddle work.
“Rescue Horses” have been with us for less than 30 days. During this time they are evaluated by the vet. We then decide a course for them and they move to be Restored, Retrained, or Re-homed (Adopted).
Horses in the Restore Album are have been seen by the vet and farrier and are on a program to restore them back to health.
These horses – displayed at the top of the website – are ready for a new home and lots of T.L.C.
The horses available are changing constantly – sometimes on a daily basis. Please check back often.
