10th Mountain Equine is passionate about people and horses. Horses are a huge responsibility and sometimes people are not fully prepared for that responsibility and a horse needs to be rescued. Other times they were loved and never mistreated, but their human passed away and the surviving family is unable to care for them. Unfortunately, there are also government and private programs where horses are rounded up to be slaughtered. Regardless of the reason they need to be rescued, we save their lives and these wonderful creatures are loved at 10th Mountain Equine until they find their forever home.
At 10th Mountain Equine, we rescue as many horses as we can. Although the need is great, we are careful to only take in horses that we can care for until we find them a safe and loving forever home. They become part of our family and are always cared for and deeply loved. We wish we could save them all, but that is not realistic. We will only save those horses that we have space for at the ranch and those that we can financially support.
Rescuing horses is a financial challenge. Although some people believe that Horse Rescues receive government funding or free supplies from vendors, that is not always true. Funding is received through private donations and a limited number of grants. We pay for supplies just the same as everyone else. A bale of hay, vet bills and farrier fees for a rescued horse costs the same as for any other horse.
If you are interested in adopting or sponsoring a horse, please give us a call or email for more details!
