The road to recovery
The road to recovery can often take months for the equines in our care. We work very closely with our veterinarians, farriers, trainer, and a team of volunteers who have dedicated themselves to the positive outcome of these animals.
Horses who arrive here often have a multitude of injuries. We work hard to heal them from muscular, nutritional, wounds, and mental issues using a combination of healing modalities such as physical therapy, massage, acupuncture, and many other processes. We fight to save the lives of horses that have been neglected, abandoned, and abused.
Unfortunately, we cannot save them all, and we sometimes lose the battle and must make the tough decision to have them humanely euthanized. The good news is that we have more wins than losses and are successful in their recovery.
For the horses who have been damaged mentally, we practice positive training methods where we refrain from using loud voices, whips, or unnecessary restraining.
The use of gentle words and motions helps build trust in human interactions and helps solve many of their mental issues.
After the horse has gone through extensive rehab, our team can begin the task of finding them forever homes where they will live a life full of love, hope, and care.
