The Rescue Horses
She has lost sight in her right eye but she has remained ride-able and is happiest when she has a “job” to do.
OLIVER – Adopted
Not knowing what level of performance Oliver would return to, his owner did not have the room or time to invest in him.
The rescue took him in to prevent him from being euthanized. Oliver has been able to return to riding and enjoys having “work” to do.
He needs a rider with some experience as he is an energetic horse. Oliver is very sweet to be around
Ruby was extremely underweight and had horrible dental problems.
Our equine dentist says with a few visits several months apart he should be able to get her mouth in reasonably good shape.
Her kind disposition and willing attitude have made Ruby a favorite in the barn!
Both of our vets thought she would probably be born late March/early April. Imagine our surprise when we went out to feed the horses February 16th, in minus 3 degree temps and found a small, still wet bundle of joy in Sahara’s stall!
Someone took him in but was unable to get medical help for him or keep good weight on him.
Gus is 12 years old and has a very friendly, happy personality and makes friends easily.
He was almost feral, very nervous about everything and didn’t even know how to lead.
Oscar has made some great progress but still has a long way to go. We hope he will come to completely trust people.
He arrived as an un-neutered colt. He has been gelded and is now safe to be turned out with mares. He is very happy to be able to be out with his “besties”, Gemma and Raven.
Although things went well at first, once Bea began to gain weight and condition she became more difficult to handle and ride.
The rescue was asked to take her in.
One of our girls is currently working with Bea to see if she can become a lesson horse.
When we heard about Cari we knew we had to rescue her.
She seemed to be a little worried about being handled and not sure what to expect from people but has settled in nicely.
Cari loves treats. At first she didn’t know what they were but now she is familiar with carrots, apples, cookies and peppermints! Cari is currently in training.
He is semi-retired here at the rescue.
He has a sweet disposition and is wonderful for pony rides and small beginner children.
Buttons loves being groomed, getting treats and grazing with his buddies.
His best friend is our other rescue pony, Zippers. They live together and share everything!
He is currently being cared for by the rescue and is as cute as can be…and also somewhat naughty!
He and Buttons are inseparable. They truly are the “Dynamic Duo.”
She had been trained to race, used as a broodmare, gone through an auction and lived in a field with cows.
Lucky tries her hardest in a variety of disciplines; placing in hunter, jumper and eventing shows.
She also loves her name! In her free time she enjoys eating treats and teaching beginners how to ride.
Despite her lack of handling or training she has one of the calmest, most pleasant dispositions we have ever encountered.
Her baby, Winter, was born February 16th and Sahara was a wonderful mother. She will soon be ready for training as a riding horse!
She has been lightly shown in hunters, jumpers, dressage and eventing.
She is bold and assertive so she needs someone with horse experience. She can be ridden by an intermediate rider under a trainer’s supervision.

It is going to be a long process but will be well worth the effort. Being out of her past environment is already having a calming effect.
She is currently being longed under saddle with the eventual goal of quiet, pleasant riding.
Obi is a handsome, athletic 13 year old Thoroughbred. He was a stallion up until just a couple of weeks before he came to the rescue.
Because he was a stallion he was kept separate from the other horses. Since arriving he has been able to meet and make friends. He loves playing and just hanging out with them!
Obi raced as a 3 year old but hadn’t been ridden since then. He is doing well with groundwork and longeing and we expect to start riding him soon!
Crowley is a 12 year old Friesian gelding. He has had an unfair shake in life. He was originally a loved “family member” and personal riding horse.
During a sale process Crowley was discovered to have a condition called corneal dystrophy. Some Friesian horses are genetically predisposed to this particular problem.
Affected Friesians have a progressive thinning of the cornea’s surface, which can lead to a number of things such as globe rupture and iris prolapse.
The condition responds favorably to appropriate treatment. Bilateral stromal loss in Friesians appears to be progressive but responds well to surgical repair.
We took Crowley in to help save his sight!
