THE HORSE PROJECT
Rescue. Rehabilitate. Rehome.
The Horse Project rehabilitates, re-trains and re-homes
rescued horses who have been abandoned, abused and neglected.
The Horse Project works to ready rescued horses for new and caring homes that best suit their individual skills, talents and potential. We are an all-volunteer group partnering with professionals for the horse's health, conditioning, and ground and under saddle training.
