Hungry, Neglected, Abused... Never Again!

  • Eddie and Wishes

    Both blind, Eddie and Wishes bonded after Wishes lost Shane, the horse who guided her to the Equamore Sanctuary in 2012. The pair now graze, play, and groom each other in a field specially prepared so that they can live as sighted horses do. Their stories appear in Equamore Horses. Shane’s story can be seen in Departed Friends.

  • Gandalf

    Gandalf came to Equamore battered and bruised from his many encounters with the stallion who dominated his herd of untrained Percherons. His story and that of the mated pair rescued at the same time can be found by clicking on “Gandalf” or “Diamond and Flint” on the “Equamore Horse’s” page.

  • Good Fences Make Good Neighbors

    New fencing plus two new hay storage and shelters are just a few of the milestones our donors made possible in 2014. Help us on Giving Tuesday, December 7th, to make 2015 as successful.

  • Sara

    This beautiful mare was one of four Arabians rescued from a breeding operation gone wrong. The two stallions and two mares had been kept in deplorable conditions and were near starvation. They have all recovered. Sarah, especially, demonstrates the glowing good looks of her breed.   Sponsorship of a horse like Sarah is an opportunity to make the kind of difference you can see on the Equamore Horses pages.

MAY 9, 2015: Abuse and Neglect Take Their Toll on Rescue Horses

Last month, we lost two of our most beloved horses. Both Johnnie B. Goode and Bader came to Equamore in appalling condition. Both appeared to have recovered, but that recovery was tentative, as it is with most horses who have suffered abuse or neglect. READ MORE

At Equamore Sanctuary, we understand that post-traumatic stress reactions in horses, as in people, can be triggered by what seems an insignificant set of circumstances. Read Kizzy’s story here;
