Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Saving Horses, Inc. rescues horses from slaughter, abuse and neglect. SHI rehabilitates these horses, and they get to live out their days at our rescue/sanctuary, where they become therapy horses. SHI gives horses a second chance and a better life. The horses participate in an Equine Assisted Therapy Program, Horses healing humans suffering from grief, PTSD, addiction and other social/emotional issues. By way of a grant we are able to offer EAT to young women survivors from Sex Trafficking. We provide volunteer opportunities for individuals with special needs, Veterans, First Responders, and at risk children.
