Herd of Hope's Mission Statement

Herd of Hope Horse Rescue is committed to rescuing horses from the auction slaughter line to provide them with a safe and nurturing place to call home.  We offer rescue, rehabilitation, and permanent placement to abused, neglected, and at-risk equines.  Many Herd of Hope horses had difficult lives as work horses, were passed from owner to owner, and/or have never experienced affection and consistency.   We provide each of our horses with the care, training, and space they need to recover—emotionally and physically—and we provide it for as long as they need it.  Our goal is to gain the horses’ trust; restore their faith in human-animal relationships; demonstrate for them consistent and compassionate care; build their capacity; and locate for them forever homes.

Herd of Hope is a vibrant community that values wellness and seeks to build meaningful relationships with our neighbors, partners, families, and friends.  We welcome visitors, but please keep in mind that we are a working horse farm and our staff is busy--every day--training and caring for horses; maintaining our facility; providing lessons; and following a COVID-19 protocol. To ensure we can accomplish these tasks while also protecting the privacy and safety of our community members, we ask that you use the Get In Touch form below to schedule a time to meet our four-hoofed family members.  Thank you!
