The Right Horse Initiative

Horses Without Humans


We are a 501c3 organization that takes in horses that have no humans, no voice of their own, and no other options.  We provide the compassion and time it takes to rehabilitate them as well as professional assessment,  medical care, companionship, and professional training with some of the most successful trainers in the equine industry. We provide basic groundwork and the foundations of dressage for all of our adoptable horses thereby giving them balance, understanding, and an exceptional advantage for all disciplines. We are saving these horses by giving them time, education, and the conditioning necessary for them to be the best athletes and partners they can be, and then finding them their humans.


We hope to encourage other like minded individuals willing to help, in whatever way they can.  Feed companies, shipping companies, volunteers, and all helpful hands, will be welcomed and put to good use.  When people of a common goal and passion unite together astonishing things are possible.
