Freedom Hill Horse Rescue

Junior


Junior is an adorable 13h Welsh pony, born in 1994.  He came to us as an owner surrender in 2015 with Romeo (below).  Junior is a fun push-button pony who has extensive show experience.  He suffers from PPID and chronic founder so must be kept off grass.  He can be ridden lightly by a lighter rider if his feet are feeling okay.   Junior knows natural horsemanship.  He also knows his manners and will mind them unless he suspects he is dealing with an inexperienced handler.  He is very much loved at FHHR and is very smart!  Junior is available for adoption. 

Adoption Fee: $250
Available for on site foster ($200/month) or off site foster (no fee).

Ellie       ADOPTED!!


Ellie is an approximately 15 hand registered Paint mare foaled in 2004. She was pulled from an auction in 2011. She is amazing to handle on the ground, knows several parelli/natural horsemanship games.  Ellie was used in equine assisted therapy programs.  Under saddle, she requires an experienced, confident and knowledgeable rider. She has a history of bucking under saddle at the canter when the rider becomes unbalanced -- although she does give warning. She is an extremely 'easy keeper'. Ellie is athletic (although more whoa than go), smart and has a very sweet disposition. She has had over 30 days of professional training and does best with consistent work. She goes both English and Western.

Romeo

Romeo, born in 2004, is a very handsome Welsh Cross gelding standing at 14.3 hands. He is an owner surrender that came to us in 2015 with Junior (above).  Romeo has a genetic degenerative suspensory disease.  This disease is stable and light regular exercise by a lighter rider would be good for Romeo.  Romeo is well trained under saddle, stands still at the mounting block, and is a lot of fun to be around.  He is a very sweet boy who is looking for a good home!

Gold Story


Hi There! My name is Gold Story. I am a lovely, 16.2H, 9 Y.O. Bay Mare.   I’m a very good natured girl and an easy keeper. I am trail ridden English style and I’m ready to please with however you would like to train me. I load on a trailer & I don’t kick, bite, buck, or rear. I’m up to date on all of my vaccines, dental, & Coggins. I don’t need shoes either,. I would love to be ridden more often to prevent minor swelling in my hind left leg diagnosed as lymphangitis,  The vet says that wrapping my leg when it swells and getting regular exercise will be just what I need to make the swelling go down. I’m ready to go whenever you are!

Dutiful Sun


Hi! My name is Dutiful Sun. I’m a registered quarter horse (Dude’s Rising Sun) but you can call me “D”.  I’m a very handsome Palomino Gelding and I stand at 15.1H. I was born in 1988. My owner mom passed away and I will be spending my golden years at FHHR with my new people that love me. I’m an older man now and have some arthritis in my front left foot and I have trouble picking up my hind legs. I can still walk and trot some. I can no longer jump and canter and play gymkhana games like I used to in my younger days. I sure make a beautiful pasture ornament now and enjoy attention from my humans. My temperament is rated at a 1 and I know that means I’m a very good boy!

Dawson 

Dawson, born in 1994, is a 16hh Thoroughbred,  came to us in 2015 when he was retired from a rigorous lesson and jumping program.  Dawson has a wonderful temperament and has been a very willing partner in the Equine-Assisted Learning and educational programs at the rescue. He is a delight to ride, knows it all, has done it all.  He requires an intermediate level rider as he can get strong at the canter. He can W/T/C. Due to his previous years as a lesson horse, he would be best suited to a non-jumping home.  An occasional small fence is fine.  He is currently on rice bran and alfalfa pellets to increase his weight but is otherwise very healthy!

Maggie & Roxie

Hi! I’m Maggie. The little brown pony, approximately 12H. I’m the lead mare here, so I will speak for both of us. Roxie is the white pony, approximately 14.2H. We came from the Davidsonville Wildlife Sanctuary. Our caregiver passed away, so now we are the (Thelma and Louise) of Freedom Hill Horse Rescue. We don’t know our breeds, but you know, it’s all about acceptance so it doesn’t matter anyway. We are both over 30 years old. I still have a little pep in my step and Roxie is a little slower. We both love attention and we are very good girls. Gentle and loving with soulful eyes. We just love to be fussed over. Because of our age, our teeth haven’t kept up with our spunky attitudes. Our hay needs to be shredded so we can eat properly. Since Roxie eats a little slower than me, I may go steal her food. Currently at off-site foster home.

Both are seeking Horse Angel Sponsors for 2018




Brocca

Brocca is a 30+ yo, Standardbred gelding, standing at 16 hands. He was pulled from an auction in 2008. He leads, ties, and stands for the vet and farrier. He has Cushings Disease and will need to be treated with medication for the remainder of his life. He was  treated in 2017 for EPM, but is no longer showing any ill effects. He is enjoying his  retirement. Once you know him, you will see a big, sweet guy under a "grumpy old man" exterior. For his age, Brocca still has quite a pep in his step.

Not Available for Adoption.

Tiny Timmy


Hi! My name is Timmy. Pretty cute name for a girl, huh? I was born in 2005. I am a Dark Bay Thoroughbred, 14.2H Mare. I am registered with the Jockey Club as Tiny Timmy. I am a surviving twin with orthopedic complications from being crushed and malpositioned in the womb. I cannot be ridden and I have difficulty moving and raising my feet. I’m in pretty good shape and my humans tell me I am as sweet as can be. I have to take lots of medications to keep me comfortable. My owner mom passed away, so I will be spending the rest of my days with FHHR to be well cared for.
