Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Horse Welfare

Our organization operates programs involved with horse rescue, foster care, rehabilitation, adoption and/or retirement.

Our organization's primary activity is equine rescue, adoption & retirement.

Our organization is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses and also uses horses to provide our services that are cared for and sheltered by another organization(s).

Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
RRM's mission is to revive the spirit, rescue the equine and mentor the child. We rescue horses that are impending a death sentence and facilitate one-on-one child mentorships with horses and an adult mentor.
