Freedom Hill Horse Rescue

Goals

  • to help horses that come from unfortunate circumstances be "Free to Live Again!" through rescue, rehabilitation, re-training, and re-homing.
  • to restore respectful horsemanship, humane treatment, and the heritage of the horse.
  • to educate communities about horses, horse rescue, horsemanship, and the proper care and treatment of horses.
  • to give the horses the best quality care while they are with us.
  • to empower our volunteers by training them and educating them about horse psychology and behavior and proper horse handling.
  • to follow the philosophy, principles, and techniques of various "natural horsemanship" practitioners with the horses that come through the rescue because we believe it is the best way to become a better horse person and establish trust, leadership, and respect with our four-legged friends in a way that they understand.
  • to mentor children and youth through the world of horses.
  • to enrich the lives of individuals, children, youth, families, and groups through our programs.
