Freedom Hill Horse Rescue



Hello There! We are Pretty Girl and Mellony, both Thoroughbred mares approximately 15 and 16 years old. I have the blaze (Pretty Girl) and Mellony has the Star. We should probably go by Thelma and Louise since we are a pretty wild pair of girls. We are very responsive to the promise of food! We are very healthy since we have been able to play freely for all of our life here in Upperco, Md. Our owner is over 80 years old and his heart would really be put at ease if someone would take us home. We come with 150 bales of hay and 30 bags of feed. We require a experienced handler since we haven’t been put to work. It’s important that we find a home together as soon as possible. We can be trained to your skill set or we can be free to play on and on.

Hi There!! I’m Elijah. As you can see, I am a strikingly handsome 15 year old QH gelding that stands at 15H. I am a super boy. Mom says I’m the barn favorite because I am so gentle and respectful as well as an easy keeper. I load on the trailer and I do not have any bad habits at all. I love to be groomed and I am barefoot with regular farrier trims. My military family is moving North and I prefer warmer weather. I have mild lameness issues due to occasional laminitis and have had navicular changes in my x-rays, so I have not been ridden since 2013. I was always a good boy under saddle in my better days. I would be more than happy to beautify your pasture and give you unlimited love. Please bring me home with you soon!!!! You can contact my mom at   I am currently located in Oakton, Va.

Introducing Cocheta!

Cocheta is a 13 Y.O. Leopard Appaloosa mare that stands 14.2H. This absolutely beautiful girl will steal your heart! Cocheta is a very good girl, intelligent and willing. She required an experienced equestrian as she is very green and a clean slate to train your way. She will take a saddle and you can sit on her at the walk and she needs to adjust to the bit but will take one.  Cocheta is well adjusted to life on the farm and all the sounds and animals that come with it, such as, dogs, cats, ducks, trucks and tractors. Her temperament has been rated as a 3 on the 1 (calm) to 10 (spirited) scale. She trailers but hesitantly, no kick, bite or buck. She has had uveitis in the past and is blind in the distal corner of her right eye. She does resist oral paste types of medication but not in a mean spirited way. Cocheta is looking for a kind and loving home. She is currently located in St Leonard, MD. She is a diamond ready to be polished! Please contact Pat at if you are interested.

We cannot always take in every horse that needs a new home. But we do strive to help any way that we can. The below horses are available for adoption by their owners.  Please contact or the contact info on the posting for more information on a particular horse. Thank you!

Note: FHHR assumes no responsibility for the animal, we are only assisting with placement as we can. Due to the overwhelming requests to assist owners with their horses, we must limit our assistance to Southern Maryland.

Pretty Girl & Mellony

Hi I’m Mia. I am a beautiful, sleek, 17 year old, Bay, Thoroughbred Mare and I stand at 15.2H. I am a former champion jumper! Mom says I’m an easy ride that is sensitive on the bit and respond well to the leg aids. I need an experienced rider since I get really excited when I’m jumping. I’m more calm going on a trail ride. I love kids and getting love from that one special person I can call my own. I load on the trailer, no kick, no bite, buck or rear. I am also up to date on my vaccines, coggins, farrier and I’m due for the dentist next month. I’m currently located in Columbia, Md. If you would love to take me home and spoil me, you can reach my mom at 



Hello from Houston, Tx.   My name is Bartoli and I am a 17 year old Belgian Warmblood gelding that stands 16.2H. Obviously, I am a super handsome boy. Mom says I’m a very nice boy with no  bad habits. I’d make a great therapeutic horse. I load on the trailer and I don’t buck, rear, kick or bite. I do have Uveitis and have lost sight in one eye. That hasn’t stopped me and I can still be ridden. I’m up to date on all of my shots and I go barefoot. I’m a big strong boy and require an experienced rider. I do not behave badly, I’m just big and strong. If you’d like to take me home with you, contact my mom at

Introducing Rocket!
Rocket is a Welsh/Morgan X gelding, approximately 18 years old that stands 14.1H. This super cute boy is fully trained and can do anything! He’s small but moves like a horse. He’s experienced in equitation, hunter, western and trail riding. Rocket has been rated a 2 on the 1(calm) to 10 (spirited) scale. Rocket clips, bathes, loads in the trailer, no kick, no bite, no buck and no rear.  He’s timid with other horses and will not fight for his share. Rocket requires an intermediate or experienced rider that will handle him consistently and patiently.  He is guilty of cribbing, but look at that face! He is a very sweet boy that deserves a kind and loving home. Please contact Pat at if you are interested.
