what we do

At Freedom Hill Horse Rescue we help rescued and unwanted horses in any way that we can. We help horses be "Free to Live Again" through rescue, rehabilitaion, retraining and rehoming. We strive to help horse owners in Maryland that need a helping hand and bridge the gap so that they have a place to turn to for help.

While the horses are with us, we are dedicated to giving them the best quality care, treatment, training, and exposure so that they have a greater chance at being adopted and finding their forever home.

We also utilize the horses to help people through a variety of educational and equine assisted programs: Equine Assisted Mentoring and Equine Assisted Growth & Learning. We offer various horsemanship training through clinics and demonstrations.

Our programs are engaging, active and effective. We work with individuals, families and groups of all ages, and we help them find meaningful, lasting solutions for any problem. All work with the horses is done on the ground. We work with people so that they can successfully reach their goals.
