Just some of the cases we’ve rehabbed over the past few years.
How many of you recognize these shells of the horses they are today?
These are what RESCUE means. . .
People look so hard for a reason why these horses end up thrown away and saved by HOP.
There is One reason they end up rescued. . .
and it is always a person at fault.
We’ve had an amazingly nice offer from Abigail W of @Dark Star Farm in VA: https://www.facebook.com/Dark.Star.Farm
to turn our sketches for Turner’s story (a book the rescue will self publish for a fundraiser before Christmas ’14) into Illustrations ready to be printed for no cost to HOP.
So exited to see this project completed!
Pepper’s second day out on the trail. Here is her gait. She is barefoot and in a no-shank snaffle bit and still extremely green. When she gets it right, she is very smooth and totally a naturally gaited horse. — with Tinia Creamer and 2 others.
Congrats Dawn W on her adoption of Ellie. She will join Dawn’s gelding who is 29 years old and has been her trail partner for 20 years He will retire now and have a pretty new girlfriend in Ellie
What do I see here. . .but Bettie looking happy.
That is the first time, since rescue, I’ve seen that.
Wow. She is adoptable
Bella is a 12 year old Quarter Horse mare. She is quiet for grooming, tacking up, around the barn etc. She has been to horse shows and on trails. Her current owner loves her dearly but isn’t able to ride her as much as she would like and prefers to find her a good home where she can get more saddle time.
Bella is being placed through Heart of Phoenix Equine Rescue, INC as an owner placement. Potential adopters will need to complete an application and submit a contract upon approval. The adoption fee for Bella is $600.
For more information about Bella’s past, skills, behavior etc. contact her current owner Amanda Morning. Most questions I will not be able to answer.

If you haven’t been to our youtube channel, I think you will find it worth the visit. Take a box of tissues, too
Misty is bred. Just confirmed with Dr. Walker. . .
The foal is small, so likely will be born early spring, he thinks
Never news we want to hear, but there it is, nonetheless.
Thank you to Angela for hauling her, as her foster, to be ultrasounded today
Who remember this awesome senior pony now living the life of leisure as a companion!
Gandalf. .. the pony my youngest son has never forgiven me for not adopting
Please spread the word
Winter is so very harsh here in terms of how many emaciated horses that come to us; vetting and hay run into tens of thousands of dollars. . .
The success of events we host, such as these, are vital to so many live…
Mark your Calendars!
Alfie is looking amazing.
This boy will forever have a special place in my heart!
What a champion of little horses he is. . .to have overcome so much
and hold no grudge against people for what was done to him.
This Fjord/QH cross mare is being rehomed.
6 years old and 15.1hh / Neck reins
She is in Ky. Her fee is $300
While she has done parades and drill,
She is suitable for trail riding only due to some maneuvering difficulties
Intermediate rider type
Goes on HOP contract after application approval
I hear this so often.
Our rescue images reach thousands and thousands a day.
People say, “Someone needs to stop this. Someone needs to help. Someone needs to DO SOMETHING.”
Today I ask you to do that. . .do something. Be the someone.
Do not re-value the importance of what you can give.
We are here. We are saving horses in need. We
can only continue and help more instead of turning them away with your financial support.
Reaching over 4,000 people on this page and an additional 6,000 on our director’s page, imagine the change this area would see if every single person that saw this donated $5 dollars. . .even $1 a month. That is $10,000 – one dollar from each person. . .
That, my friends, would change the lives for so many.
