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. SHI currently cares for 9 sanctuary horses. The horses participate in an Equine Assisted Therapy Program, healing humans suffering from grief, PTSD, addiction and other social/emotional issues. We offer therapeutic riding for Children with Autism and volunteer opportunities for individuals with special needs.
