 Save a Horse...Ride a Rescue

Desperado needs a loving home!

There are thousands of starved, abused, abandoned, & unwanted horses in the state of NC.  Rescues such as the Horse Protection Society struggle to help humane societies and animal control with this daunting problem. 

How can you be a part of the solution?

Sponsor a
Horse of Your Own
For as little as $20 a month or more, you can sponsor a horse at HPS.  It costs about $250 per month to feed and care for a horse at the sanctuary.  Sponsors receive a newsletter every month, and may visit their horse Saturdays between 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm.  Become an Angel Sponsor today.  Click on the link below to print a sponsorship form and indicate the name of the horse that you would like to sponsor.  Or if you like, we can choose  a horse for you.

Riding & Training Participants Needed!
The purpose of the HPS riding & training program is to get the horses back into condition before going to new homes, to give them any additional training they may need, to help them overcome their fears of being ridden, and to learn about the horses' abilities & personalities so they can be matched with an appropriate home.

If you would like to participate, you must have a current HPS membership, volunteer 14-16 hours a month on the feed schedule, possess a willing attitude and be prepared to make a long-term commitment to the program. HPS has a paid trainer to help our members learn to ride. We start by teaching the correct ground work to build trust with the individual who will be riding the horse.  The horses have recovered from starvation and do not have the muscle tone to carry much weight.  There are some weight restrictions for riding, but we also need people to help with groundwork, grooming, and tack maintenance.

The program meets on Sundays from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.  
For further details, please contact the sanctuary at hps@horseprotection.org.
